"For the 10th straight year, Honda ranked among the top two automakers for supplier relationships as determined by the just released 17th annual North American Automotive OEM-Supplier Working Relations Index® Study. We recently celebrated the incredible teamwork between Honda and our more than 1,000 mass production and service parts supplier partners in North America that help us exceed the expectations of our Honda and Acura customers this past year. This included giving special recognition to those suppliers receiving quality, value and innovation awards. 

Honda has been producing products in America for nearly four decades, and a key part of our success is the strong relationship with our North American suppliers. In 2016, they provided more than $30 billion worth of parts and materials to our plants in the region, and another $1 billion in service parts to ensure timely and quality service work at dealerships.

During the past three years, Honda has maintained an incredible cadence of all-new model introductions leading to record sales in each of the past three years, none of which would have been possible without the contributions of our suppliers. So, even as we challenge ourselves and our suppliers to even higher levels of quality, value and innovation, we celebrate the contributions from our business partners that help us create joy for our Honda and Acura customers."
