Arburg expands in Thailand

  5/24/2019 - Lossburg, Germany - On May 17, Andrea Carta, Arburg director of overseas sales, together with Ratree Boonsay, managing director Arburg Thailand and Dr. Alexander Raubold, counselor economic and commercial affairs of the German embassy in Bangkok, officially opened the new premises in Samutprakarn, Thailand. To mark the occasion, the subsidiary led by Ratree Boonsay hosted an open house event. Around 60 customers attended the event. On May 10, a traditional blessing ceremony with nine Buddhist monks had already taken place, intended to bring luck to Arburg Thailand and its employees. "We are very proud to have the largest Arburg showroom in Southeast Asia because of the new premises. This enables us to offer our customers in Thailand optimum support and even better service," said Ratree Boonsay, who has successfully managed the subsidiary since its foundation in 2001. "The positive development over the past decades confirms that we chose the right path and that our continuous investments in the important Asian market have paid off," Andrea Carta commented on behalf of the entire parent company, thanking the customers and the Arburg team in Thailand. Since late 1992, the Thai market had initially been managed by a representative office of Arburg Pte. Ltd. Its first employee was Ratree Boonsay, who took over the management of the newly founded subsidiary in 2001 and successfully established and expanded it together with her team. The new premises are located in Samutprakarn, one of Thailand's leading industrial regions. Guests were able to experience the performance of the Allrounder injection molding machines "live" with two packaging applications. A hybrid Allrounder 570 H with a clamping force of 2,000 KN produced two 500-milliliter containers in a cycle time of around six seconds. The second exhibit, an electric Allrounder 470 E Golden Electric with a clamping force of 1,000 kN produced two stacking boxes in a cycle time of around 18 seconds. A linear Multilift Select robotic system was used for handling of the molded parts weighing 63.8 grams each. The customers were impressed by the applications and the possibilities offered by the new Arburg premises. With 705 square meters, it offers ample space for the presentation of machines, customer trials and training courses. The spare parts warehouse has grown as well, this allows even more spare parts to be delivered directly.
