LINCOLN, Alabama — Honda is marking 20 years of auto production in Alabama, an era that has transformed communities across the state touched by its vast network of business.
At the same time, the company’s auto assembly plant in the Talladega County town of Lincoln has become a pivotal part of the automaker’s global success as its primary production source for light trucks and the V-6 engines that power them.
The Lincoln plant has expanded multiple times over the years with new models, innovative manufacturing processes, additional jobs and key investments. Today, the operation represents a cumulative capital investment of $2 billion and employs more than 4,500 associates.
Since the facility rolled out its first Odyssey minivan on Nov. 14, 2001, Honda’s Alabama auto workers have produced more than 5 million light trucks and V-6 engines.
