About Us

Local and Global Viewpoints

Honda has grown into a world enterprise, while keeping a business philosophy that maintains a local viewpoint. This allows for the development and production of products that customers want to buy. That is why 17 million worldwide Honda customers choose to obtain Honda products from our three core business lines - motorcycles, automobiles and power equipment.

Our strategy for continuing success can be summarized in three steps:

  • Stay close to our customers;
  • Understand their needs; and
  • Exceed their expectations.

Speed, flexibility and efficiency are key attributes of Honda's global organization – strengths gained from the company's six-region global structure. Based on Honda's core philosophy of producing products close to the customer, these six regions include North America, South America, Europe/Middle East/Africa, Asia/Oceania, China and Japan. Each region has autonomy to make decisions based on local customer and community needs. But, with a local viewpoint, each region works in a complementary way, creating a truely global network that supports the needs of customers worldwide.

In the North American region, our Ohio team has earned a leadership role in manufacturing, as well as product development, parts and materials procurement, and parts logistics and exports.
