Asian Honda Motor Co., Ltd., the regional headquarters of Honda in Asia & Oceania, announced that Thai Honda Manufacturing Co., Ltd, a Honda motorcycle, power product, and component manufacturer in Thailand, today reached a cumulative production total of 25 million units of power products. In addition, Honda is planning to export a new backpack sprayer, the first power product model fully researched and developed by Honda R&D Southeast Asia Co., Ltd., to customers worldwide this year.
Established in 1965 as Honda’s first production facility in Thailand, Thai Honda Manufacturing Co., Ltd. began producing power products in 1987. The company marked the milestone of cumulative production of 25 million units today, only two years after achieving the 20 million unit milestone in July 2012. A ceremony to commemorate the occasion was held at the plant, which is located in Bangkok.
Currently, Thai Honda produces a variety of high-quality power products such as general-purpose engines, water pumps, and brush cutters for customers in over 80 countries worldwide including Thailand, Japan, countries in Europe and North America, and elsewhere. Honda’s power products are used for a wide range of purposes such as agriculture, civil engineering, and for household needs and recreation. The most famous product is the small and lightweight GX engine series, which complies with CARB (California Air Resources Board) Tier III regulations, the most stringent emission regulation in the USA. Annual production capacity for power products is now approximately three million units.
