Honda R&D Americas, Inc. and JobsOhio announced a grant partnership supporting and promoting a growing, high-tech workforce at Honda R&D Americas’ Ohio Centre, including the addition of 175 new jobs.
Associates at the Raymond, Ohio, R&D centre – Honda’s second-largest R&D centre in the world – are responsible for creating the advanced technologies and automobile and powersports products that bring new value to Honda and Acura customers in North America and global markets.
Honda R&D Americas is advancing its driver-assistive and human interface systems to support Honda’s vision of contributing to a collision-free society. In October, in Marysville, Ohio, Honda demonstrated its “Smart Intersection” technology for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication designed to help reduce traffic collisions at roadway intersections, one of the first such deployments of V2X technology in a real-world setting.
“We’ve been building our team of innovative Honda engineers in Ohio for more than 30 years,” said Frank Paluch, President of Honda R&D Americas, Inc. “As Honda takes on new challenges to meet the future needs of our customers, we continue to build a next-generation workforce by investing in our associates, our operations and our communities to promote the growing, high-tech presence here in Ohio.”
“Honda R&D Americas’ investment in Ohio is an important step forward in building the next generation of mobility,” said Kristi Tanner, JobsOhio Senior Managing Director for Automotive. “We are thrilled that Honda is working on its latest technology here in the Columbus Region, where they can partner with the likes of Connected Marysville, TRC and 33 Smart Mobility Corridor.”
