Takao Eastern was founded with the purpose of producing pick-up
truck body parts and frames for AutoAlliance (Thailand) Co.,
Ltd. (Ford and Mazda). But, as the company became recognised
for its high-quality and environment-friendly products, big-name
manufacturers like Toyota, General Motors and Isuzu also wanted
a piece of the action.
Providing both style and elegance, Takao Eastern’s unrivalled

Inventions for speed and efficiency
Takao Eastern currently works with a two-stage production
line – a press line and welding line. With around 200 employees
working tirelessly for the betterment of the company, it is
not hard to see why production capacity is continuously on
the rise. In order for the firm to cope with increasing demand
as well as make work faster and more efficient, Takao Eastern
utilises its very own revolutionary mechanical equipment:
T.A.F. Multitution Welder
In the production of complicated mechanical body parts, most
local companies connect jigs by welding them together with
heat. But with Takao Eastern’s T.A.F. Multitution Welder,
all the jigs are connected in one go (multi-spot welding),
providing for a hassle-free people-friendly system.
• The machine’s die-changing function allows for the processing
of various parts.
• The peripheral units enable a more efficient system.
• The machine has a four-point simultaneous welding capability,
allowing for a maximum of 100 welding points.
• In eliminating the need for laying out work, the machine
greatly increases the efficiency of production.
Giving back to society
It is a priority of Takao Eastern to enhance the quality of
people’s lives in the surrounding communities. This can be
seen in the company’s extensive social role and corporate
citizenship projects, where contributing to these communities
is at the top of Takao Eastern’s list of objectives.
Takao Eastern staff tirelessly devote themselves to numerous
social activities through such charitable programmes as:
• Donating educational equipment to local schools
• Providing free lunches to under-privileged school pupils
• Contributing to the drug-free project
• Hiring local labour
In recognising that quality determines a company’s success,
Takao Eastern has made it an integral part of its operations.
Today, the company enjoys a good reputation for its high-quality
operations and services, as well as excellent internal quality
management – all factors that have helped Takao Eastern thrive
in the global market.
It is this appetite for perfection that has brought the company
to its newest and most triumphant milestone. Takao Eastern
is one of the first automotive suppliers to achieve the ISO/TS
16949:2002 quality management system. By acquiring this certification,
Takao Eastern has confirmed to its clients that it is ready
to become a leading and trustworthy partner and has cemented
its position in the international market as a quality company.
