Honda says it will spend $215 million to expand an engine plant and build two training centers in Ohio.
The investment will add about 60 jobs in the state, although 50 of them will come from other Honda operations in North America. About $180 million will go to Honda's Anna engine plant to expand work on aluminum die casting and engine parts production. Money will also go toward a training center for the plant. Honda also plans a $35 million training center for auto assembly workers and engineers at its Marysville assembly plant. Honda says the building includes office space and a heritage center to document Honda's North American history. The company says it's invested nearly $2.7 billion in North American operations during the last three years.
