Honda of America Mfg., Inc. will open a 40,000 square-foot training center in Ohio to provide new production associates with the skills to transition into current manufacturing roles, reports the publication Industry Week. The two-week training program will support workers for Honda’s Marysville Auto Plant, East Liberty Auto Plant and the Anna Engine Plant.
The $1.9 million investment converted an existing building, IW reports, and will allow up to 100 new production associates hands-on opportunities to train each week. Current, experienced Honda staff will provide classroom instruction along with training in process simulation and hands-on static skills.
Industry Week says the center will replicate the workflow and procedures in Honda manufacturing plants. “Our associates are working with advanced technology as the evolution of manufacturing continues to progress,” Honda of America VP Pam Heminger told IW. “It’s innovative approaches like this training center that will continue to modernize our workforce.”
