Honda to expand Timmonsville plant, add 65 jobs

TIMMONSVILLE, SC (AP) -

Honda Motor Co. is moving production of its two-seat all-terrain vehicles from a plant in Mexico to its Timmonsville facility, adding 65 new jobs.

The company made the announcement Thursday at the same time it celebrated making 2.5 million all-terrain vehicles at the South Carolina plant.

The new line of two-seat vehicles should be in place next summer. Honda is investing an additional $27 million in the Timmonsville plant, which opened in 1998 and has exclusively made ATVs.

Honda says the market for all-terrain vehicles that seat more than one person is growing in the U.S.

Honda says the Mexican plant can now focus on making more motorcycles and mo-peds that are in demand in that country.
