-- — While the local Honda Manufacturing of Indiana (HMIN) plant is used to utilizing teamwork to roll cars off the line, they are working on a different project in the wake of the disaster in Japan. With its global headquarters in Japan, the earthquake, ensuing tsunami and threat of radiation has hit home for HMIN. Work continues as normal locally as most of the parts for the automobiles come from regional suppliers in North America, according to Anita Sipes, corporate communications for HMIN. “Right now, there is no impact to our operations or others in North America. We are monitoring the situation,” Sipes said. While business-wise, the impact has not reached HMIN, the emotional impact of the tragedy in Japan has had its effects. Sipes said there are 35 Japanese associates at HMIN, and the company in North America is extending its hand to those in need. Sipes said HMIN has set up a “micro-site” through the Red Cross so associates can donate to the relief effort. HMIN has committed to match dollar for dollar that which is donated. Proceeds will be used for the recovery effort in devastated regions of the Pacific Island nation. “We are, as a company in North America and globally, doing everything possible to support the recovery in Japan,” she said.
