Thailand Plant commences production
In July 2012, Makita Manufacturing (Thailand) Co., Ltd., or the Thailand Plant, our manufacturing subsidiary located in Chonburi Province, Thailand, commenced production.
The industrial park in Chonburi Province, where the Thailand Plant is located, is in a hilly area with complete industrial infrastructure and no fear of flooding. Since it is located near Laem Chabang Port, the largest international trading port in Thailand, the lead time for production for Southeast Asian countries can be reduced, realizing an enhanced production system capable of flexibly and promptly responding to demand.
Our sales in Asia, especially in Southeast Asia, show steady growth. With demand expected to expand, we aim to further promote sales by making full use of the Thailand Plant.
