It was yet another milestone for Honda Power Products when it reached the 100,000,000 production mark.
With the object of reducing the people’s workload by mechanizing the work, Soichiro Honda launched an agricultural engine in 1953 to “make people working in farming and fishing villages happy through technology”. Since then Honda has been introducing new kinds of power products that help people in their daily lives. The range of power products include fuel efficient tillers, generators, outboard engines, pumps, lawnmowers, snow throwers and many more products which are not only customer-friendly, but take into consideration environment protection as well.
It would be apt here to refer to a message from Mr. Takanobu Ito, President and CEO, which says “Since its establishment, Honda has been committed to the development of personal mobility products which realize the joy and freedom of mobility. At the same time, in order to realize a “sustainable society where people can enjoy life,” the reduction of CO2 emissions will be one of the most important challenges. Toward the realization of these two themes which we stated in our Environmental Vision, we will propose exciting and thrilling products and technologies, which not only offer high environmental and safety performance but highlight Honda’s identity, ahead of other automakers. And as a result, we will dramatically strengthen the Honda brand.”
In appreciation of its customers, Honda announced that it would continue to evolve itself and address the challenge of advancing the environmental technology of its products, while also realizing power that helps people in the areas of energy conservation and creation such as micro cogeneration units and solar power generation systems. Honda would continue to be at the forefront of the times and create new values for its customers. By using its technology to achieve harmony between people and nature, it would offer “power that helps people get things done in all stages of life” and bring more and more smiles to the customers.
It would be worthwhile here to mention that Honda has its presence in India in the power product industry in the form of Honda Siel Power Products Ltd. (HSPP), with a turnover of Rs.4,322 million (financial year ended 31st March ’11),which is a subsidiary of Honda Motor Company, Japan which has a turnover of 8,936,867 million Yen (FY 2011).
