Mitsubishi Motors recently announced that its Thailand branch has achieved a major production milestone. Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (MMTh) has reached four million vehicles produced. This major milestone was celebrated during a commemoration ceremony at the plant, with several Thailand government officials and Tesuro Aikawa, Mitsubishi Motors Company President and COO, in attendance.
“I’m very happy to be here with you to commemorate MMTh’s achievement of four million units produced and I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Thai government and all parties concerned for their continued cooperation and support rendered to MMTh,” said Mr. Aikawa. “Moving on we will continue to place our Thai operations as the core of our business, devoting ourselves to producing vehicles that will exceed customers’ expectations, and expand our operations in step with the Thai automobile industry.”

Mitsubishi Motors’ Thailand branch was established in January of 1987, and is considered one of the brand’s major distribution hubs. As Mitsubishi continues to restructure its production plans, including a shutting down its Normal, Illinois plant that produces the Outlander Sport, we’re sure the Laem Chabang plant in Thailand is sure to become even more important.
One of the biggest Mitsubishi sellers in the Thailand market is the L200 pickup. As this pickup continues to increase in popularity globally, so should its production, pushing the assembly plant to an even bigger milestone.
