GREENSBURG, Ind. -- Honda will invest $52 million in its Greensburg facility and add up to 100 new jobs to support production of the Honda CR-V.

The company made the announcement Tuesday at a press conference attended by Gov. Mike Pence and Greensburg Mayor Dan Manus.

The Greensburg plant began production of the Honda Civic in 2008. The facility employs more than 2,300 people currently.

"This new investment in our Indiana facility will enhance our manufacturing flexibility and better position Honda to meet customer demand for our lineup of fuel-efficient passenger cars and light trucks,” said Bob Nelson, president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana.

As part of the investment, Honda will put $12.37 million toward a new, 20,000-square-foot career development facility. The company says it plans to offer more than 1,000 self-guided e-learning classes.

The Greensburg plant has the capacity to produce 250,000 vehicles a year.
