Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) passed the milestone of exporting 4m vehicles from Thailand, and held a ceremony at Laem Chabang, Chonburi Province.

Its subsidiary in Thailand, Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) (MMTh), has three car production plants and an engine factory in Chonburi Province which has become the company's largest manufacturing centre outside Japan.   MMC started operations in Thailand in 1961 and became the first automaker to export vehicles in 1988. Last year, it exported almost 80% of the 440,000 vehicles manufactured there – including knocked-down (KD) units.   MMTh now employs more than 7,000 people directly and thousands more in the supply chain.   "The ASEAN region centering on Thailand is one of the important areas for Mitsubishi Motors," said Osamu Masuko, chairman of MMC. "In addition to contributing to the region through businesses such as providing products that meet each country's demands, employment, human resources development, investment as well as local production and export, we have been contributing to local societies through our corporate citizenship activities. We will continue to expand our activities in the ASEAN region to further contribute to solving social issues."
