CR-V comes to Alliston!
The first 2012 Honda CR-V rolled off Honda Canada Manufacturing (HCM) the production line in Alliston on January 23rd, 2012.
This fourth generation CR-V, considered a global model, is produced in 10 countries and sold in over 160 countries around the world.
The CR-V is the fourth distinct model to be manufactured in the Alliston Honda facilities, joining the Civic, the MDX and the ZDX. Production is back to peak levels, about 1,600 vehicles per day between the two assembly plants as the Alliston plant seems to have recovered from slow downs due to parts shortages as a result of two natural disasters in 2011. HCM employs approximately 4,200 people in Alliston and is responsible for many more local jobs in secondary and tertiary automotive industries as well as logistics and other spin-off industries.
This news bodes well for local jobs and housing markets!
