Honda Motor Company has completed construction and inaugurated its new plant located at Rojana Industrial Park in Prachinburi, Thailand.
The 214,000 sq m facility has been developed with an investment of THB17.15bn ($484.6M) and has a production capacity of 120,000 units annually.
The new plant is equipped with Honda’s highly-efficient and environmentally-responsible production technologies — introduced at Honda’s Yorii Plant in Japan — and will serve to enhance the company’s capability to deliver quality products for customers in Thailand and across the world, says the manufacturer.
Honda Motor president, CEO and representative director Takahiro Hachigo said: “Thailand has increased its presence as one of Honda’s production hubs by supplying products and components not only for the home market but also for the world including ASEAN nations, which drive our global sales growth.
“I am committed to making certain that the role of Thailand will become even more valuable with the completion of this all-new Prachinburi factory with full advantage of Honda’s newest production technologies.”
The plant currently has 1,400 employees.
