Scania is strengthening its business in Asia and  Thailand with a new assembly facility for trucks and bus chassis in the Bangkok Free Trade Zone. The new factory is the biggest Scania’s investment in production outside Europe and Latin America. 

Scania Group Thailand is a fully cross-functional set-up and includes employees from Scania´s Production and Logistics, R&D, Purchasing as well as Sales and Marketing organisations. The facility covers a surface of 33,900 square metres.

“With this new industrial establishment and with local suppliers, we can now build Scania trucks and buses according to global specifications, with Thai origin. It gives us completely new prerequisites for our growth in the ASEAN Free Trade Area,” says Gustaf Sundell, Managing Director for Scania Group Thailand.

In addition to the new facility, Scania has established a regional headquarters in Thailand, to support Scania’s distributors throughout Asia and Oceania in developing business in their markets.
