Honda Plans Major Expansion at Lincoln, Alabama, Plant

07/25/2018
Honda Manufacturing of Alabama plans a $54.8 million expansion that will add more than 50,000 square feet at Honda Alabama’s Line 2 operations at its assembly plant in Lincoln, Alabama. The expansion is expected to be completed in early 2021.

When combined with last year’s investment announcements for both the Line 1 and Line 2 facilities, Honda Alabama will add more than 425,000 square feet to its production operations for a combined investment of about $150 million.

According to the Alabama Department of Commerce, the automaker continues to grow its operations in Talladega County, with a multi-phase project to improve flexibility, strengthen efficiency and prepare for future technologies.

“Honda is a cornerstone of Alabama’s vibrant automotive industry,” said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“The company continues to show confidence in its local workforce, with new investments that fuel innovative technologies sought by customers around the world,” he added.

Honda has more than 4,500 employees at its $2.6 billion plant in Lincoln, which has the capacity to produce more than 340,000 vehicles and engines each year. Its lineup includes the Odyssey minivan, Pilot SUV and Ridgeline pickup, as well as the V-6 engines that power all three models.
