Nippon Steel Corporation established in June 2011 Nippon Steel Galvanizing (Thailand) Co Limited for the manufacture and sale of hot dip galvanized and galvannealed steel sheets, and NSGT held a groundbreaking ceremony on February 27th 2012.

The ceremony took place at the construction site in the Hemaraj Eastern industrial estate, Rayong Province in Thailand.

NSGT, given an environmental permit in December 2011, has been pressing ahead with this project, as originally scheduled. NSGT plans to build facilities at this site adjoining SUS, thus structuring an integrated control setup downstream of cold rolling.

Nippon Steel officials said that "We shall continue building manufacturing equipment and facilities, with the objective of precisely responding to customer needs for high grade automotive steel sheets and others, in time for the scheduled start of commercial operations in October 2013."
