By Norihiko Shirouzu TOKYO (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co was so concerned by mounting recalls for Takata air bags, and frustrated by its supplier's failure to explain why some have exploded, killing five people with shrapnel, that it bought used and scrapped cars in Japan to conduct its own tests.

Honda’s first U.S. engine plant, the Anna Engine Plant (AEP), began production with motorcycle engines in July 1985. AEP produced its first automobile engine, for Civic, in September 1986. The plant produces automobile engines, disc and drum brakes, engine blocks, cylinder heads, crankshafts, cylinder sleeves, driveshafts and other major parts. With an annual capacity of 1.18 million automobile engines, AEP is Honda’s largest automobile engine facility in the world, producing 4-cylinder and V-6 engines for North American-built Honda and Acura automobiles. AEP also exports major engine components to Honda plants in other countries. In May 2008, the plant completed a $75 million expansion to add production of stamped steel engine components previously made in Japan. Further, in 2008, AEP began providing complete engines for Civics produced at the new Indiana auto plant, and engine components for 4-cylinder engines being produced at the new Canada engine plant.
Honda engines are tough, and building them that way takes skilled associates and lots of equipment. That's why Honda has invested more than $1.7 billion at the Anna plant alone. One reason is the vastness of the operations. Aluminum ingots, iron and other raw materials head into separate aluminum casting and ferrous foundries to start the production process for engine blocks and heads, cam shafts, crank shafts, drive shafts, cylinder sleeves and brakes. The Anna Engine Plant has annual capacity to supply more than 1.18 million V-6 and four-cylinder engines for the Honda Accord Sedan, Accord Coupe, Accord Crosstour, Element, Civic, Civic SI, CR-V and Ridgeline, as well as the Acura TL, RDX, MDX and ZDX. Anna's newest customer is the Honda Manufacturing of Indiana plant that opened in 2008.
