Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa were the founders of Honda Motor Co. The legacy of commitment to customers that drives our company is embodied in a legacy known as The Honda Philosophy.
Honda comprises individuals working together for a common purpose. Each individual, acting appropriately within his or her role, must translate this philosophy into actions. It is this contribution from each associate that contributes to the company’s success. And every associate should be honored for these efforts.
The human being is born as a free and unique individual with the capacity to think, reason, and create — and the ability to dream. Honda’s fundamental belief in Respect for the Individual calls on Honda to nurture and promote these characteristics in our company by respecting individual differences and trusting each other as equal partners.
If you want to know what makes us tick, you have to know our team. Here, we’ve featured just a few of the 4,000 associates who help make us and our products better every day. Each of our associates is special and unique, and their individuality makes them each a valuable part of our company.
We share Honda’s global leadership in environmental stewardship. In fact, our facility here in Lincoln was established as the very first “Zero Landfill” automotive plant in North America. Since the start of production in November 2001, we’ve built more than 3.1 million vehicles and engines… and have sent nothing to a landfill.
We’ve identified alternative uses for leftover materials and have even found ways for our cafeteria to recycle.
We’re known for building cars that are as safe as possible. But that’s just part of the story. We want to build safe cars safely. We emphasize safety at every stage of production. Our engineers work closely with our manufacturing associates so they can understand each area and design parts that make new models safer to build.
