Honda Aircraft Company started operations at its newly opened Wing Production and Service Parts Facility, located at the company's world headquarters at the Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The new 83,100 square-foot facility is the latest addition to the 133-acre Honda Aircraft Company campus, and represents an additional investment of $24.3 million, bringing the total capital investment in its North Carolina facilities to more than $245 million.
Honda Aircraft Company broke ground on the new facility in late July 2019 and completed construction in September 2020.
"Honda is a mobility technology company, and our newest facility further increases efficiency of assembly. It also will house more service parts to support the rapidly growing HondaJet fleet," said Michimasa Fujino, president and CEO of Honda Aircraft Company. "Since entering the market five years ago, the HondaJet has received a tremendous response from customers. This facility will enable us to continue to provide our growing global customer base with the highest level of customer support."
The Wing Production and Service Parts Facility will house a new wing assembly process for the company, which is the fastest, farthest and highest-flying aircraft in its class.
