Honda Motor Co. Ltd. announced that Honda's cumulative worldwide power products production reached the 100 million-unit milestone during 2011.

Honda since has been utilizing its core technology to gradually expand its power products lineup. It includes tillers, generators, outboard engines, water pumps, lawn mowers, snow blowers and other products.

In Japan, Honda power products are produced at Kumamoto Factory and Hosoe Plant at Hamamatsu Factory.
