The company says all workers hired for the new positions will be Indiana residents.

"You have to live within the 20-county hiring area to work at the plant, on the production line,"

U.S. Honda Plant To Add 1,000 Workers To Build More 2012 Civics


Honda Civic production is still being predicted to be at low levels, but Honda announced it will hire 1,000 additional workers and add a second shift at its Greensburg, Ind. assembly plant by the end of this year.

The parts shortages resulting from Japan’s March earthquake and tsunami hit Civic output especially hard because Honda was in the midst of switching from production of the 2011 Civic to the redesigned 2012 model, said Honda spokesman Ed Miller.

Honda is reportedly confident its suppliers can support the Indiana plant’s extra shift because it has already spent more than two months working to revive its supply chain, Miller said.

"We have a much clearer view of where the parts are coming from and in what volumes," Miller said. "We have a better picture of our supply chain now and we're able to make that commitment."

Miller would not predict when Civic production would return to normal. The company is sticking with its previous announcement that vehicle production would return to normal by August, except for the Civic.

Honda Adding Second Shift to Civic Production in Indiana


As perhaps a sign of an improving situation from its suppliers, Honda has announced it will be stepping up production of the Civic at its Greensburg, Indiana assembly plant by adding a second shift.

Since the plant opened in 2008, Honda has always planned to have two shifts running, however, a combination of supply issues from the natural disaster in Japan, along with having to re-tool for the 2012 model have meant that its only been possible to keep one shift running, as a result; availability of Civics so far this year has been at half the normal level, much to the chagrin of Hondas dealers and customers.

Nevertheless, a spokesman for Honda, Ed Miller, said that the company has been working hard on fixing its supply problems and as a result is now able to commit to a second shift at the Civic plant.

So far this year, sales of small cars are up by 20 percent over 2010, spurred in part by higher fuel prices. Hondas overall sales are up by 17 percent, as is demand for the Civic, so the news probably could not have come at a better time.
