MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) – Japanese car company Honda is now exporting more cars than it imports – and many of them are assembled at two Ohio plants.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the assembly plants in Marysville and East Liberty – both northwest of Columbus – also broke annual production records last year.
The automaker exported 108,705 vehicles in 2013 and imported 88,537.
Of the total exports, nearly two-thirds – 69,680 vehicles – were assembled in the Ohio plants. They went to 40 countries.
The Honda Accord is assembled at Marysville, and its top crossover, the CR-V, is assembled at East Liberty.
Honda has about 13,700 employees in Ohio. In addition to the assembly plants, it has an engine plant in Anna, a transmission plant in Russells Point and other offices.
