Honda Celebrates 50 Years In The U.S.

The first overseas subsidiary of Honda Motor Co. Ltd., American Honda Motor Co. Inc., was established in a small Los Angeles storefront on June 11, 1959. The company's first product was the imported step-through Honda 50 — a relatively diminutive offering compared to the American and European brands sold at the time — and its first motorcycle produced stateside rolled off the production line in Marysville, Ohio, in 1979.

Today, Honda employs more than 27,000 U.S. associates in the design, development, manufacturing, sale and servicing of Honda and Acura products, including automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, personal water craft, power equipment and a light jet.
