Honda to build new NSX at Performance Manufacturing Centre in Ohio

Article by Anita Panait, on May 16, 2013

Honda will build the all-new NSX supercar at its new Performance Manufacturing Centre in Ohio, United States. The Performance Manufacturing Centre is a $70-million advanced production site that covers 184,000 square feet and will be contained inside Honda’s former North American Logistics plant. The site will be Honda’s third auto plant in Ohio and will be located proximately to Honda R&D Americas’s Ohio Centre that is engineering the supercar for production.

It is also adjacent to Honda of America Manufacturing’s Marysville Auto Plant. It is likewise close to Honda Engineering North America, which is responsible for development of new production technologies. The Performance Manufacturing Centre will have around a hundred-strong highly skilled associates who will be sourced from within Honda’s existing operations in Ohio. Honda will also assemble the NSX’s powertrain in Ohio at its engine plant in Anna.

The all-new NSX will carry a Honda badge in Europe and Acura in the US. It is being developed by a global R&D team that is led by designers and engineers at Honda R&D Americas in Los Angeles, California, and Raymond, Ohio. Honda R&D Americas chief engineer Ted Klaus will be leading the global team for the new NSX while Honda of America associate chief engineer Clement D’ Souza will be leading the team that will bring NSX to volume production in 2015.

D’Souza remarked that the new Performance Manufacturing Centre in Ohio will be as unique as the vehicle that will be built there. He said in creating the plan for Performance Manufacturing Centre, they carefully considered each process and determined the “perfect blend” of associate craftsmanship and technology to adopt a new approach to manufacturing.
