There’s a new lobby ornament at the Honda Power Equipment Mfg. plant in Swepsonville, NC: the facility’s 20 millionth product—a shiny new HRR216K5VXAA walk-behind mower that factory officials say they’re going to keep as a monument to the organization’s success and quality output.

Honda Power Equipment products are produced at 11 manufacturing facilities worldwide, and a large percentage comes from the Swepsonville plant, which opened in August 1984 and has an annual capacity of 1.5 million engines. Honda is the world’s largest engine manufacturer, producing and marketing nearly 22 million units every year for automotive, motorcycle, marine and power equipment products.
