HONDA OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES 1992 SUPPLIER AWARDS

 HONDA OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES 1992 SUPPLIER AWARDS
 ANNA, Ohio, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Honda of America Mfg. (HAM) recognized 66 of its North American suppliers today by presenting awards for outstanding achievement in areas of quality, delivery, productivity and production support at its 10th Annual Supplier Conference.
 More than 600 supplier representatives attended the conference held at the company's Engine Plant in Anna, Ohio. The 66 awards were the greatest number ever earned by HAM suppliers, exceeding by more than 50 percent the 42 awards presented in 1991.
 "We have seen marked improvement in our suppliers' performance, especially under the challenging conditions we faced last year," said Dave Nelson, vice president of Purchasing. "In 1991, our suppliers worked closely and successfully with us to launch the new 1992 Civic; start up the Accord at the East Liverty Auto Plant; launch the Shadow 1100 motorcycle with a new custom paint program; implement the installation of driver's side airbags (SRS) on all HAM-built automobiles; and achieve the production of one million engines in Ohio, a measure of the rapid rise in capabilities at our Anna Engine Plant."
 A Special Award was presented to The Timken Company in Canton, Ohio to recognize their significant efforts and high degree of flexibility and commitment in the development of alloy steel bar for the Accord constant velocity joint manufactured at the Anna Engine Plant.
 Suppliers at the conference also attended workshops presented by HAM's senior executives on the topics of competitiveness, constant improvement, community involvement and corporate citizenship, and the electronic information exchange system.
