Production will stop for three months this spring at a South Carolina Honda manufacturing plant.
The Timmonsville, S.C., plant will halt production in March, April and May due to the weakened U.S. economy.
No layoffs are scheduled with the production stoppage, said Bill Savino, manager of motorcycle press for American Honda Motor Corp. told Powersports Business.
“The main thing is we don’t overproduce what we need and when this clears itself up, hopefully around June, that we’re ready to go and we can come right back to work and be wide open again,” Savino said.
The plant builds engines and key ATV components, according to an online report.
