Honda Power Equipment last week announced it has shipped 30 million power products to domestic dealers and distributors since it began offering outdoor power equipment in the United States in 1972.
Beginning its U.S. operations with only engines, tillers and generators for sale, Honda Power Equipment has evolved into a leading global power products supplier. Honda currently provides more than 60 models of power products, 28 basic models of general-purpose engines and a wide variety of four-stroke outboard engines.
“We achieved our latest milestone in sales by continually designing and building equipment that exceeds consumer expectation,” said Honda Power Equipment vice president, Scott Conner. “This accomplishment demonstrates that customers value technological and environmental innovation, and Honda remains committed to both.”
Honda Power Equipment products are produced at 11 Honda manufacturing facilities worldwide, though nearly 75 percent of Honda power products sold in America are produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the Honda Power Equipment Manufacturing facility in Swepsonville, N.C., which opened in August 1984.
