Isuzu Thailand Reaches 5 Million Vehicles Mark
Isuzu Motors Limited announced on October 28 that its plant in Thailand had reached the five-million-unit milestone in cumulative
vehicle production. Since 1963, Isuzu began manufacturing vehicles in Thailand under a subcontracting arrangement. In 1966, Isuzu Motors Co (Thailand) Ltd was established. Over half a century, it has been manufacturing commercial vehicles such as the Isuzu D-Max Pickup Trucks and Passenger Pickup Vehicles. Since IMCT began to manufacture pickup trucks for the Thai market in 1974, the volume has been growing steadily and now totaled five million units in 56 years and 11 months.
The export of pickup trucks began in 1999 first to Australia, and then to other overseas destinations. In 2002, the manufacturing of pickup trucks for export was completely relocated from Japan to Thailand. IMCT is indeed a mother plant of Isuzu’s pickup trucks and takes a lead in supplying Isuzu vehicles to more than 100 countries and regions.
