Aluminium frame-maker expands storage

SUS (Thailand) Co recently completed its warehouse expansion project in the northern province of Lamphun to cope with demand for its aluminium extrusion frames and parts.

"Our production is growing at over 20 per cent a year," president Yasuo Ishida said yesterday.

Aluminium has been increasingly used in the construction of buildings and for fittings and furniture. The company has used aluminium extensively in its own factory buildings and warehouse expansion in Lamphun.

"Our customers want eco-friendly products that are strong, light, weather-resistant and easily installed," he said.

"Aluminium has answers to all these. It is 100 per cent reusable, very eco-friendly, beautiful and can be customised to fit the customers' needs."

SUS Group, the parent of SUS (Thailand), has expanded into European, North American and US markets.

SUS (Thailand) plans to build two more factories in 2014 and 2016 in Lamphun. By 2017, the company plans to complete what it calls "Aluminium Land", a complex of up to four factories manufacturing and assembling aluminium products from frames to accessory parts on its 164 rai of land in Lamphun.

Since 2007, SUS (Thailand) has invested over Bt800 million in building two factories and the warehouse.

SUS produces and sells machinery, equipment and unit products for factory automation, furniture, building materials and components to the world market.
