In order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and reduce the risk of exposure to our Team Members, their families, and our visitors, we have decided to restrict all visitors at all facilities except for business essential personnel. A General Manager or above must approve access to any visitor other than contractors or vendors that support our normal day to day business such as truck drivers. Business essential personnel will still be asked to complete the Visitor Health Check.  If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) to anyone WITH SYMPTOMS waiting on test results, diagnosed or quarantined in relation to COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or have had cold or flu-like symptoms within the last 24 hours, access will be denied. Visitors can view the updated visitor procedure ahead of time by clicking the “Updated NAL Visitor Procedure” button.

Rounding out our summer intern introductions is Mr. Spencer Fox, Marketing and Sales intern at our Farmington Hills office!

NAL is excited to be participating in the annual Team Honda Week(s) of Service, a dedicated week of service that brings together Honda companies, dealers and suppliers in an effort to support local communities through a service or volunteer project. This year, Honda decided to spread things out from June-August to allow for flexibility due to COVID-19. In support of the program, all NAL facilities are offering at least one service project for Team Members to take part in.
