Mazda Motor Corporation will construct a transmission plant with an annual production capacity of approximately 400,000 units in Chon Buri with an investment of 26 billion yen (8.47 billion baht).
Mazda decided to establish the plant to respond to increasing demand for models featuring its ''SkyActiv technology'' and to strengthen its global production footprint, said a company statement. Operations at the new plant will commence in the first half of the fiscal year ending in March 2016.
The new plant will be located five kilometres north of Mazda's joint venture production facility, AutoAlliance (Thailand) Co (AAT), and will supply SkyActiv drive automatic transmissions.
