 Honda Produces 300,000th Side-By-Side In South Carolina

Honda Produces Its 300,000th Side-By-Side

Honda hit a significant milestone recently when its 300,000th side-by-side rolled down the assembly line in the Honda plant at Timmonsville, North Carolina. It turns out that 300,000th side-by-side was a Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe which we would be happy to have. Imagine working at a place the turns out so many side-by-sides that offer up fun, adventure, and work capabilities for so many people. That would be pretty special.  In addition to the side-by-sides, the plant has produced over 3,000,000 (yes, million) ATVs.

That plant was established in 1998 as an ATV production plant, and multipurpose side-by-side production started in 2013, with the Pioneer 700. Production of the Pioneer 500 followed in 2014 and the Pioneer 1000 in 2015, with Talon sport side-by-sides beginning production in 2018.  In 2019, the plant completed a $45 million upgrade, which included a 115,000 square-foot expansion, complete with a new weld area, paint line, automated guided carriers, lift-assist devices and improved production efficiency. The project also added 250 new jobs, bringing current total employment to 1,400 people.

Kudos to Honda for bringing the off-road world so much joy from its plant in Timmonsville, North Carolina.
