Official statement from Honda concerning flooding of Celaya factory

As we posted last night, Honda's Celaya factory was taken offline due to flooding caused by heavy rains. Following is the official statement from American Honda.

Update: Celaya Plant Flooding and Recovery


Jul 30, 2018
Due to the overflow of a river near Honda's auto plant in Celaya, Mexico, all auto and component production was suspended beginning June 28. While the Honda transmission plant in Celaya resumed production on July 9, our expert teams have completed an investigation of the damage to the tooling and equipment at the auto plant, which produces the Honda Fit and HR-V, and we now expect to resume auto and engine production in Celaya in mid-November.

Production of the refreshed 2019 Honda HR-V is already underway at another Honda auto plant in Guadalajara, Mexico, about 160 miles west of Celaya, which did not experience any flooding.

Due to a critical engine part that is made at the Celaya engine plant, Insight production at the Honda auto plant in Indiana also will be suspended for the month of August. Based on existing parts inventory, the Indiana plant was able to produce Insight through the end of July, and will resume production in the beginning of September.

Our commitment is always to provide our customers with high quality products and production will not resume in Celaya until we can ensure the highest levels of quality for all parts and products.

< Honda De Mexico, Celaya Auto Plant >
Place: Celaya, Estado de Guanajuato, Mexico
Started Production: 2014 (Transmission Plant 2015)
Associates: 5,200 (including TM plant)
Model: HR-V, Fit (TM Plant: CVT)
Automobile Capacity: 200,000 units
Transmission Capacity: 350,000 units
