Full Production at Honda

Alliston | by Mariane McLeod  

Honda reports its Alliston plant is back at full production.

It's back to full throttle for workers at Honda in Alliston, after work slowdowns caused by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March.

Honda says by November, it will make 16-hundred vehicles a day at its plants in Alliston.

Honda had cut production during the recession and there were further cutbacks with a parts shortage in the aftermath of the destruction in Japan.

The plants in Alliston will also resume overtime two Saturdays a month, mainly to build more Civics, which are a huge best-seller.

80 per cent of the Honda and Acura vehicles made in Alliston end up in the US, where buyers have been waiting as long as two months for their new cars to be delivered.
