Honda Makes Face Masks

By Staff Writer April 03, 2020 1557

American Honda has pledged $1 million to address needs of communities across North America and is donating personal protection equipment and the use of 3D printers in Honda operations to produce face shields for healthcare providers.

The automaker, like others, has taken a major hit because of COVID-19 and government shutdown orders.

March and COVID-19 stopped American Honda’s strong 2020 start as sales fell 48 percent in the month.

“As a society, we're all in this together. After a strong start to the year, industry sales are going to suffer in the short term, and we have suspended auto production as part of our effort to carefully manage our business in the face of the steep decline in demand,” said Steven Center, vice president of automobile sales at American Honda. “At Honda, we are focused more than ever on supporting our customers, our dealers, our associates, and the communities where we live and work. Our country is going to come back strong and we are going to come back strong, and we know there are better times ahead.”

As a result of the pandemic, hundreds of Honda and Acura dealers closed during March, complying with government mandates.

Dealers that remained open focused on taking care of existing customers through maintenance and repair.
