Honda of America will convert a plant at its Central Ohio complex as the site for assembling its redesigned Acura NSX passenger vehicle. The $70-million project, called the Performance Manufacturing Center adjacent to the Marysville, Ohio, Auto Plant will be completed in two years, the automaker announced.

Honda has two other assembly plants in Ohio, at Marysville, and East Liberty, and also casts blocks and builds engines at Anna, Ohio. It has an R&D operation in Raymond, Ohio, and a parts center in Troy, Ohio. In all, the company has 14 manufacturing operations in the U.S.

Honda did not detail the scope of the refurbishment project. It said the new Performance Manufacturing Center would be “a unique manufacturing operation” employing approximately 100 skilled workers it will select from its current Ohio operations in Ohio.

"Thirty years ago, building cars in America was a big dream. Working together, here in Ohio and across North America we turned this dream into reality," stated Honda of America president and CEO Hidenobu Iwata.
