Honda Power Equipment Sets Major Milestone (Apr 23)

April 23, 2015 – April 23, 2015 – Honda Power Equipment announced today that it has shipped 40 million power products to domestic dealers and distributors since it began sales of outdoor power equipment in the United States in 1973. In relation, Honda Power Equipment executives helped celebrate the actual 40 millionth power product sold to a customer at Weingartz in Utica, Michigan. Weingartz, a family owned and operated business, has been a North American leader in sales and service of outdoor power equipment since 1945 and a Honda Power Equipment dealer since 1978.

Beginning U.S. operations with only engines, tillers, generators and outboard engines for sale, Honda Power Equipment has evolved into one of the leading global power products suppliers. Honda currently provides more than 60 models of power products in six major product families, 30 basic models of general-purpose engines, and the industry’s widest variety of four-stroke outboard engines.

“We have reached this significant milestone in our U.S. history by keeping a keen focus upon the needs of consumers,” said Honda Power Equipment senior vice president, Scott Conner. “Honda remains committed to delivering the most innovative, reliable, and ultimately, helpful products to our customers, dealers and distributors.”

At the heart of Honda’s power products business is the organization’s long-standing commitment to engine development and technology. Honda is the world’s largest manufacturer of engines, producing and marketing engines globally for automotive, motorcycle, marine, and power equipment products each year. All Honda engines feature four-stroke overhead valve designs that are optimal for multiple power applications.

Although Honda Power Equipment products are produced at 11 Honda manufacturing facilities worldwide, more than 75 percent of Honda power products sold in America are produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the Honda Power Equipment Manufacturing, Inc. (HPE) facility in Swepsonville, North Carolina, which opened in August 1984.
