Chris' Corner: CR-V comes to Alliston

CR-V comes to Alliston

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!

Chris glad to hear the CRV was added to the line.  You are right, there is a co-relation between more jobs and real estate.

Hi Chris - The automotive manufacturing sector was hard hit in the past few years in Ontario for several reasons including the recession and the natural disasters.  I am glad that it is starting to get much better at some of the OEMs, including Honda and their suppliers.

Marc, the world has suffered from many overlying crises.  Hopefully we are starting to recover.
