Automaker Honda (HMC) will create 1,000 jobs at its southeastern Indiana plant by the end of the year as it adds a second shift, the Associated Press reported on May 31.
Greensburg plant spokeswoman Anita Sipes says the additional shift will double its workforce, AP reported.
Honda has been looking to add a second shift since the plant opened in 2008, but the plan was put on hold due to the recession.The report says the additional shift will allow the Greensburg plant, which makes the Honda Civic sedan and the Honda Civic GX natural gas vehicles, to double production capacity to 200,000 vehicles a year.
