Benson Honda, the leading Honda dealer in San Antonio, is proud to announce that Honda’s manufacturing plant in Ayutthaya will open its doors quite soon. It was right around six months ago that massive flooding overtook the Ayutthaya plant and ruined several thousands of vehicles at the plant. At the end of it all, the people at Honda estimated that the damaged totaled right around the production of 260,000 vehicles.
Honda was not the only company effected by all of the flooding in Thailand, as a variety of suppliers and manufacturers, in all industries, were forced to shut down their operations. Within the auto industry, Honda may have been effected the most as they weren’t able to properly adjust their production with the help from suppliers from other areas as their Thailand plant was overcome by flooding.
At Honda’s Ayutthaya plant, in Thailand, Honda Motor Co. builds Honda Fit(s) for boththe Asian and Australian Honda markets. Once the flooding water had receded at the end of October 2011 Honda pledged not to use any of the tampered parts or vehicles damaged via Mother Nature. With that vow, Honda took majority of the tampered and damage parts to scrap as they opened a new chapter. Although the devastation ruined several vehicles and parts, and also put a huge dent in Honda’s fiscal figures, Honda carried on and will come out stronger in the end.
