Tokai Rubber establishes its manufacturing subsidiary for OA equipment parts in Thailand

21 August 2012 - Tokai Rubber Industries, Ltd. (TRI) (Head Office: Komaki City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan) announced its decision to newly establish its subsidiary specializing in the manufacturing and sales of parts for Office Automation equipment in Rayong, Thailand. 

As major domestic laser printer and copier makers are shifting their production bases to China and South East Asia in order to curb production costs, it needs to keep pace with the production transfer of such OA equipment makers, its existing customers. 

It also aims to acquire new customers by introducing a high-quality, low-cost production system and enhancing our competitiveness in quality and prices. 

While TRI Group has already been operating automotive supply businesses extensively in Asian and Western countries, this new subsidiary will serve as another full-scale overseas base for general industrial products businesses following the establishment of its industrial hose manufacturing and selling facility in Hefei, China.
