Honda to add 1,000 jobs at its Indiana plant

2012 Honda Civic HF

Honda has plans to add 1,000 jobs to its southeastern Indiana plant by the end of this year as it adds a second shift. Honda’s Greensburg plant spokeswoman Anita Sipes said that the additional shift will double its workforce at the location.

The second shift had been planned since the factory opened its doors in 2008, however, the recession put those plans on hold. With the economy on the rebound, Sipes says it seemed like a “natural time” to add the second shift.

Honda, which currently produces about 100,000 units at the Greensburg plant, will bump capacity up to 200,000 units with the second shift. The plant makes the Honda Civic sedan and the Honda Civic GX.
