In 1982, Honda opened a new assembly plant in Marysville, OH, becoming the first Japanese automaker to operate a factory in the U.S. Now, big changes are coming to this historic plant. Honda is investing $700 million to turn that factory—along with plants in East Liberty and Anna, OH—into a hub for EV production in North America.

This episode also covers:

  • U.S. companies are increasingly purchasing goods made closer to home and relying less on goods from low-cost countries in Asia.
  • Volvo is building an assembly plant in Mexico to make heavy-duty trucks for the North American market.
  • A British start-up has developed a robotic cell that automatically applies electrical wires directly onto a part.
  • A Tier 1 automotive supplier is building a line to accommodate workers with disabilities.
