Azbil Gears up for New Factory in Thailand

Azbil Corporation said the recently announced plan to construct a new facility in Thailand will expand and strengthen its global production system. Moreover, the planned Azbil Production (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in Thailand’s Chonburi will also reinforce its business prowess overseas.

Over the past 10 years since its founding in 2013, Azbil Production (Thailand) has worked to improve its manufacturing technology and expand the repertoire of items it produces. Presently, it manufactures a wide range of products, including industrial temperature controllers, various types of sensors, and HVAC controllers. In addition, it also plays an important role as a production and direct shipping base for products destined for Southeast Asian and East Asian countries.

Strengthens Three-Pillar Production Base

The new building will strengthen the company’s production capacity and increase the variety of items it produces. The purpose is to meet an expected increase in demand as the Azbil Group’s overseas business grows. At the same time, also to meet the needs of the Group’s overseas customers for various products that require advanced production technology, such as electromagnetic flowmeters and differential pressure transmitters for the industrial market.

The Azbil Group established in 1994 its first overseas production base, the Azbil Control Instruments (Dalian), in China. Next, it established Azbil Production (Thailand) in 2013 to expand overseas production capacity.

In addition, to further the development and automation of advanced production technology, Azbil began in 2019 full-scale operation of its “mother factory”. It consisted of the Shonan Factory linked with the Fujisawa Technology Center R&D base. Thus, strengthening its three-pillar global production system in Japan, China, and Thailand.

Azbil’s overseas production ratio has continued to increase since 2010 and will likely reach the mid-30% range by 2025.

With its philosophy of human-centered automation, the Azbil Group develops and provides products and services that meet customers’ needs and contribute to the betterment of society.
