Honda Power Equipment reached the milestone of 30 million power products shipped to domestic dealers and distributors since it began offering outdoor power equipment in the United States in 1972.
Beginning U.S. operations with only engines, tillers, and generators more than 38 years ago, Honda Power Equipment evolved into a leading global power products maker. Honda now offers more than 60 models of power products, 28 basic models of general-purpose engines, and a variety of four-stroke outboard engines.
At the heart of Honda’s power products business is a long-standing commitment to engine development and technology. Honda is the world's largest manufacturer of engines, producing and marketing nearly 24 million units globally for automotive, motorcycle, marine, and power equipment products each year. All Honda engines feature four-stroke overhead valve designs that are optimal for multiple power applications.
Although Honda Power Equipment products are produced at 11 Honda manufacturing facilities worldwide, nearly 75% of Honda power products sold in America are produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the Honda Power Equipment Manufacturing, Inc. (HPE) facility in Swepsonville, NC, which opened in August 1984.
