As an offshoot of Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. and Sumitomo
Wiring Systems Ltd., SEWS-Components (Thailand) Ltd.
(SEWS-CT) understands and abides by
the Sumitomo culture of excellence.
The company’s passion for quality, which
is embraced by every employee, reflects Sumitomo’s principles
SEWS-CT started life in 1996 as a component division within
Sumitomo Electric Wiring System (Thailand) Ltd. (SEWT). As
the automobile industry’s demand for wiring harnesses increased,
the need to produce wiring harness components also intensified.
Thus, SEWS-Components (Thailand) Ltd. was established in May
2002 with the objective of supplying the growing market. The
company’s objective was to manufacture and sell wiring harness
components to its parent companies in Japan, as well as to
other Sumitomo affiliated companies throughout the ASEAN region.
After receiving invaluable technology transfers and technical
assistance from the parent company, SEWT-CT was able to produce
a complete range of wiring harness components via a highly
sophisticated computerised production process.
SEWS-CT’s 8,829-square-metre plant, located on 26,630 square
metres of land, is equipped with state-of-the-art technology
and is currently capable of producing 25 million connectors
per month. The factory, situated in Amata City Industrial
Estate, a BOI promotional zone, sits between Laem Chabang
Port and Bangkok.
As safety is of prime concern at SEWS-CT, regulations and
precautions set by the government are considered a top priority.
The factory is designed to protect employees from job-related
accidents, while providing a comfortable working environment.
With 500 employees operating 237 tools and 81 moulding machines,
SEWS-CT is ready to forge into the future, with the knowledge
that it has the right technology and the right facilities
to take the company to new levels.
In realising that current-day suppliers need to achieve excellence
in all aspects, the company provides utmost customer satisfaction,
with an emphasis on cost, quality product development, on-time
delivery, effective management systems and continuous innovation.
Furthermore, the company recognises the value of its human
resources. Training and promotion schemes are offered to upgrade
skills and improve the employees’ quality of life, as well
as to promote better relationships between co-workers.
Products made to please
For SEWS-CT, achieving greater precision for minute electronic
circuitry is a topic of vital importance. The company takes
pride in providing components designed with up-to-date mechanical
engineering. The components that make up the wire harnesses
SEWS-CT are constantly being subjected to new developments
and improvements, with all efforts geared towards making assembly
even easier. The hi-performance connectors, developed by the
company to support automotive electronics, have earned widespread
recognition as an indispensable part of modern car making.
Fifty per cent of SEWS-CT’s products are distributed to the
parent company in Japan, while the rest go to Sumitomo’s affiliated
companies in Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia
and Sumitomo Electric Wiring System (Thailand) Limited (SEWT).
