Clement D’Souza, who led the creation of the innovative new Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, the exclusive global production facility for the 2017 Acura NSX supercar, is the latest Honda associate featured in the ‘What Makes a Honda is Who Makes a Honda’ video series.
A mechanical engineer and 26-year veteran at Honda of America Mfg., Inc., D’Souza was tapped as the engineering project leader in 2012 to lead the creation of a new manufacturing facility to produce the next generation Acura NSX, the only supercar manufactured in America. The result is the state-of-the-art Performance Manufacturing Center where serial production of the NSX will begin this spring.
D’Souza is also a world-class field hockey player who once aspired to play professionally in his native India. He competed as a member of the U.S. team in the 2016 FIH Masters World Cup in Canberra, Australia, March 31-April 9.
D’Souza brought his passion for innovation and his unique blend of engineering talent and commitment to teamwork to the challenge of creating a manufacturing facility that is pioneering new approaches to small-volume, high-performance vehicle manufacturing.
