Where does your Honda user manual come from?

June 25th, 2016 by

HondaIf you drive a Honda Pilot, Odyssey, Ridgeline, or Accord, you may never have thought the helpful, paper-bound booklet in your vehicle’s glove compartment.

But for workers at Rainbow Omega, a non-profit organization in Eastaboga, AL, Honda user manuals are a surprisingly big part of their life.

You see, Rainbow Omega provides working opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities–giving them a job and a paycheck to those who might otherwise never have the opportunity. And their hard work is paying off–just recently, the program received a 2016 Honda Supplier Award for Excellence in Delivery for their efficient and high-quality work.

“Michael Gaines, purchasing division manager at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, said during his speech that only 93 performance awards ranging from quality, value, and delivery were given out across the 644 North American parts and materials suppliers.”

On average, this team of dedicated workers assemble about 1,500 Owner Manual Kits per day, that are then shipped to Honda Manufacturing of Alabama to be installed in select new Honda models.

It’s a wonderful partnership that empowers those in their local communities, while also benefiting from quality work and a dedicated staff.

Congratulations to Rainbow Omega, from all of us at Holmes Honda in Shreveport, LA!
