TIMMONSVILLE, SC (AP) -

Honda of South Carolina says it's investing $45 million in an expansion project which it says will create 250 additional jobs at the plant in Timmonsville.
    
A statement from the company on Thursday said the 115,000-square-foot expansion and innovation project is designed to meet growing demand for Honda side-by-side vehicles produced exclusively in the South Carolina plant.
    
The plant is the exclusive global producer of Honda Pioneer side-by-sides, including the 500, 700 and 1000 series models. Prior to the announcement, Honda had invested $93 million and added more than 150 new jobs in South Carolina over the past five years related to side-by-side production.
    
Honda of South Carolina began production of all-terrain vehicles in July 1998 with a workforce of approximately 200. The plant now employs more than 900 workers.
