Honda, Big 3 automakers to shut down production

Honda is shutting down all of its production plants in the North America. That includes the assembly plant in Greensburg.


Honda says it will shut down beginning next Monday, but plans to return to production on March 31.


The three big automakers in Detroit -- General Motors, Ford and Fiat-Chrysler -- have agreed to shut down all of their factories, because of coronavirus concerns.  That will have a big effect in Indiana, as the list of closures will include the GM Assembly plant in Fort Wayne. More than 4,000 people work at that facility.  It would be the second time in a matter of months that work will stop at the plant, after the UAW strike late last year.


Toyota, which has a plant in Princeton, says it does not plan to shut down manufacturing facilities.
