Honda associates and area media got together Thursday morning to celebrate an event more than two years in the making: the debut of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck.
Honda Manufacturing of Alabama President Jeff Tomko said, “We’ve been working on this for two years now, and now we’re ready to unwrap it and show it to the world. This is an exciting moment …”
The project “bounced back and forth between line one and line two, and went on a 22-month hiatus,” he told the more than 1,000 associates gathered for the unveiling. “That shows the strength of this team, the focus on a successful launch and your enthusiasm, passion and pride in the quality of the product.”
