Celaya Plant Flooding and Recovery - Update #2

Update #2
July 31, 2018

Due to the overflow of a river near Honda’s auto plant in Celaya, Mexico, all auto and component production was suspended beginning June 28.  All Honda associates have been accounted for and are safe.

While the Honda transmission plant in Celaya resumed production on July 9, our expert teams have completed an investigation of the damage to the tooling and equipment at the auto plant, which produces the Honda Fit and HR-V, and we now expect to resume auto and engine production in Celaya in mid-November. 

Due to a critical engine part that is made at the Celaya engine plant, Insight production at the Honda auto plant in Indiana also will be suspended for the month of August.  Based on existing parts inventory, the Indiana plant was able to produce Insight through the end of July, and will resume production in the beginning of September.

Our commitment is always to provide our customers with high quality products and production will not resume in Celaya until we can ensure the highest levels of quality for all parts and products.

Update #1

Due to the overflow of a river near Honda’s auto plant in Celaya, Mexico, all auto and component production was suspended on June 28. All Honda associates have been accounted for and are safe.

As a result of the flooding, production of the Honda Fit and HR-V in Celaya has been suspended for the month of July. Our teams continue to investigate the damage to the tooling and equipment at the plant and we anticipate that it will take several weeks to determine when we can resume Fit and HR-V production. The Honda transmission plant in Celaya resumed production effective July 9.

Insight production at our auto plant in Indiana will be suspended in the month of August due to a critical engine part that is produced at the Celaya engine plant.

Our commitment is always to provide our customers with high quality products and production will not resume until we can ensure the highest levels of quality for all parts and products.

We will provide updates periodically on the progress of the recovery efforts and the timing of production restart.
