On March 22, South Korean manufacturer Sangsin Brake officially opened its first manufacturing plant in Mexico in the municipality of Arteaga.
The USD 35 million 40,323-square-meter facility has been operational since the second half of 2018 with 150 employees, but plans to double such figures with the opening of a second plant by 2021.
The facility currently manufactures brake pads at a rate of 800,000 pieces per year and aims to increase the pace to 1 million by the end of 2019.
The output capacity is expected to reach 1.5 million units per year in 2020.
Sangsin Brake manufactures brake pads, brake shoe assemblies, brake assemblies, brake linings, rail brakes, retarders, tuning parts, yaw brakes, brake systems, brake discs and drums.
The company supplies brake systems for automakers such as Kia, but also serves the aftermarket sector under the HI-Q, Hagen, and Hardron brands.
On March 20, 2019, Thailand Prime Minister signed a document to start phrase 2 of the development of Automotive and Tire Testing, Research and Innovation Center (ATTRIC), expected to be completed in 2022.
The center’s completed first phase involves testing of tires under UN R117 standard, while the second phase is designed for testing of vehicles and auto parts. This center will ensure Thai automotive makers of the country’s world standard in automotive and tire testing, in support of carmakers and tire producers in the kingdom. The project is part of the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) development, expected to attract foreign car makers to the zone and would turn Thailand into a hub for the transfer of automotive and tire technologies in ASEAN.
Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) is currently in talks with the Budget Bureau over the budget of THB 3 billion for the second phase development of four fields, which are the park brake field, dynamic platform, skid-pad field, and long distance and high speed field.
