"This week associates at our Marysville Auto Plant produced the 10 millionth U.S.-built Accord and marked the cumulative production of 20 million automobiles at our four auto plants in Ohio, Alabama and Indiana. As we celebrate these milestones, we also are reflecting upon what made it all possible.

We are deeply appreciative of the trust and loyalty of our customers over the past three decades, which is certainly the reason we have reached these milestones.

We are indebted to our partners -- the network of 533 suppliers in the U.S., from whom we purchased more than $23 billion in parts last year, and the nearly 1,300 automobile dealers who take care of our customers with outstanding sales and service.

Finally, at the foundation of these achievements is the talent of tens of thousands of Honda associates who build products of the highest quality and value.

With this strong team – our dealers, our suppliers and our associates – focused on creating joy for our customers, we welcome the opportunity to reach new milestones in the coming years."
