Honda Power equipment production reaches 100 million units

Honda Motor has announced today that Honda's cumulative worldwide Power Equipment production reached the 100 million-unit milestone during 2011.

Honda’s Power Equipment business dates back to 1953 and is based on the original spirit of Honda -to utilise technology to help people - when an engine for agricultural equipment was launched with the aim of reducing the manual labour of farmers.

Since then, Honda has been utilising its core technology, the engine, to gradually expand its Power Equipment offering and the product line-up now includes tillers, generators, outboard engines, pumps, lawnmowers, snow blowers as well as many other products.

Today, Honda Power Equipment products are produced at eleven production plants in nine countries and are used regularly by people in more than 150 countries around the world, positioning its Power Equipment business as one of the key pillars for Honda’s business along with the Motorcycle and Automobile businesses.

Honda will continue its efforts to provide a wide-range of environmentally-responsible, safe and useful products to fulfil the increasingly diversifying needs of customers across the world.
