About Suzuka Factory Activities

A Production Line with Man and Machine in Perfect Harmony:
Producing High Quality Automobiles from State-of-the-art Facilities and Human Skills

Suzuka Factory utilizes state-of-the-art machinery in all of its processes to manufacture high-quality automobiles. Its efficient, integrated production system covers every stage of manufacturing, from the engine to the finished automobile. Honda's fundamental principle "people-first" is applied throughout, using robots for tasks that are either strenuous (such as handling heavy objects) or demand difficult postures if done by hand, making Suzuka Factory worker-friendly.

Components are unitized in its "Global Standard Line" production line, allowing multiple models to be manufactured on the same line, realizing flexible manufacturing according to market demands.

Honda Products

Revolutionizing Manufacturing

Suzuka Factory sets the standard - the "Global Standard Line" - for Honda's production lines worldwide including North America and the United Kingdom.

Productivity and flexibility for each stage of production are of a higher standard, responsive to changes in the market. By spearheading Honda's Green Factory initiative, initial costs for developing new models and extensions have been halved, manufacturing lead-time (from component acquisition to finished vehicle) has been reduced by 30%, 8 models can be handled simultaneously, and CO2 emissions from manufacturing have been reduced by 20%.
