Jazzin' it up in Swindon! 

Honda Jazz to join production line with Civic and CR-V
 
Thousands of Honda workers in Swindon have been assured there will be no job losses during this difficult economic period, with news that the Honda Jazz will soon be built here.
 
Swindon's Honda Plant
Ready to Jazz it up:
the Honda plant in South Marston,
which will soon produce the new Honda Jazz
 
Production at the car manufacturer's plant in South Marston is expected to begin late next year - with the Jazz set to complement the CR-V and Civic models already built here.
 
David Hodgetts, Director at HUM, said: "We are extremely pleased to announce production of the new Jazz at our operation in Swindon.
 
"We are looking forward to the challenge of introducing a brand new small car into mass production in 2009 which will increase our total overall volume.
 
"In the short term we are facing a difficult period but there will be no job losses. We have an extremely strong and flexible workforce who will continue to manufacture top quality cars for our customers."
