Mazda Opens Engine Factory in Thailand
Mazda Motor Corporation today announced the opening of a new engine machining factory at its powertrain plant in Thailand’s Chonburi Province, Mazda Powertrain Manufacturing (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (MPMT).
Working to enhance its comprehensive production system in Thailand for engines, transmissions and complete vehicles, Mazda has invested an additional 22.1 billion yen to establish the machining factory and increase the capacity of the existing engine assembly line in order to raise engine production capacity at MPMT from 30,000 to 100,000 units per year. Moving forward, the plant will start production of the SKYACTIV-G 2.0, an engine that will be supplied to manufacturing facilities in Malaysia and Vietnam as well as Thailand.
Aiming to help create a future in which people, the earth and society can coexist with cars, Mazda will keep working to enrich people’s lives through a car ownership experience that celebrates driving and become a brand with which customers feel a strong emotional connection.
