I'm pleased to announce that construction has been completed on our new advanced manufacturing facility in Thailand and production will begin soon on truck and bus, OTR and industrial tires for the North American market.
This plant needed to be built in order to meet the growing demand for Double Coin tires as well as our continued plans to expand our product line.
It's a story of quantity and quality for our customers. Our tire dealers and the end users of our products will have more supply to depend on . . . and even more importantly, this plant will be manufacturing tires to the highest international standards for quality.
New technologies and the latest equipment are being used throughout the plant. For example, manufacturing and material transfer are automated. The entire plant is controlled by the MES software (Manufacturing Execution System) and is integrated with the SAP management system. The project is designed according to the Industry 4.0 concept. This is a level of automation that reduces the number of employees in the factory to half of what is needed in a traditional tire factory and ensures the quality of the products produced is more stable and reliable.
Built on a 3.6 million square-foot site, the new facility is set to manufacture more than 2.5 million TBR tires and 50,000 OTR tires annually.
This is Double Coin’s first manufacturing plant outside of China and one of a total of six plants. The state-of-the-art facility is owned by Huayi Group (Thailand) Co. Ltd., and operates in the Luckchai Rubber Industrial City Hub, which is located in Thailand’s Rayong Province.
We're looking forward to having Double Coin tires from our new Thailand facility rolling down U.S. highways and providing dependable performance in off-the-road environments such as construction and mining.
