Two days after starting operations in Malaysia, joint venture partners Purem by Eberspaecher and AAPICO Hitech opened their new exhaust plant in Rayong, Thailand.

The new plant covers 3,000 square metres and was built in only five months on AAPICO´s Rayong campus. About 150 employees will work there.

Thailand ranked 10th in 2022 with total car production of 1.88m units. For 2023, the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) forecasts that Thailand’s car production will reach 1.9m.
Martin Peters, managing partner of the Eberspaecher Group, said: “With the two new sites we opened – earlier this week in Malaysia and today Thailand – we are able to manufacture our products now in 19 countries.”
