Mazda makes Thailand its hub for parts exports

MAZDA has designated Thailand as its spare-parts distribution hub for Asean and global exports, and has officially opened a new parts distribution centre in Samut Prakan to improve the quality of its after-sales service.

Set up by Mazda Logistics & Yusen (Asia) – a joint venture between Mazda Sales Thailand and Yusen Logistics (Thailand) with registered capital of 40 million baht ($1.58 million) the new facility stocks up to 53,000 Mazda parts worth more than 360 million baht.

Yusen is the largest logistics company in Japan.

Last year, Mazda’s Thai operations sold 1.7 billion baht worth of spare parts for the domestic market and 800 million baht for export to more than 100 countries.

However, the export proportion of sales is bound to grow dramatically in the near future, as Mazda has just opened its 11 billion baht transmission plant in Chon Buri to produce 400,000 SKYACTIV gearboxes annually. Then, during the fourth quarter of this year, construction of its first engine plant in Thailand will be completed.

Mazda has yet to announce the production figures for the three billion baht engine plant, but similar numbers to the transmission facility are expected.

“In the past, Mazda’s parts management in this region was handled by our business partner, and we lagged behind our rivals,” said Hidesuke Takesue, president of Mazda Sales Thailand.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
