Building a Company in America

This historic speech will be by Shige Yoshida, retired Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer of Honda of America Manufacturing, at the April 23 Rotary meeting. Yoshida will describe, for the first time in a public speech, Honda’s plans and its path in the late 1970’s, leading to auto production in 1982, a decade of successful growth, until his retirement.  Enabled by Honda’s unique, and environmentally friendly CVCC engine, first the Civic and later the Accord became successful cars in the USA.​
