What is CAN?

Honda’s Assistance Network (CAN) was originally established in 1994 as part of the Supplier Support Team.  It began as a means of promoting the Honda Way of actively seeking input from associates in production through a problem solving program styled after the Honda NH Circle program.

To promote involvement and participation, competition conferences were established and are held in the spring and fall each year at different sites across North America.  CAN expanded its role to include promotion, support, and training in many different areas of associate involvement and engagement.

Today CAN is a robust peer-to-peer group of supplier representatives committed to continuous improvement through associate engagement.  To become a member of this exciting and rewarding group, read on.
