Delta Electronics inaugurates new factory and R&D center in Thailand

Looking to meet the growing demand for electric vehicle power electronics in Southeast Asia, Delta Electronics, a subsidiary of the Delta Group, inaugurated a new manufacturing plant, Delta Plant 8, and R&D Center in Thailand.

With an investment of nearly three billion baht (US$ 82 million), the new factory and R&D center with 30,400 square meters of floor space aims to increase production capacity for Delta's rapidly growing EV business.

"Since 2010, we have produced EV power electronic products in Thailand. Our new Delta Plant 8 aims to meet the growing demand for our EV products and our new R&D center will develop automotive power electronics locally for the first time," said Victor Cheng, CEO of Delta Thailand.

"We believe our significant investments will greatly benefit the industry, economy, and environment of Thailand and our Southeast Asia region."

Delta's EV products range from power management products, including onboard chargers and DC/DC converters, and powertrain products, including traction inverters and traction motors, to thermal management solutions and passive components.

For the past 35 years, Delta produced EV power electronics for top automotive manufacturers from Europe, the USA, and Japan from its 25,000 square meters Delta Plant 1. With the new plant, the company intends to embark upon a new growth phase that will focus on expanding manufacturing but also R&D, and business footprints in the local markets while supporting the development of next-gen automotive and smart electronics in Thailand and the wider Southeast Asia region.

The grand inaugural ceremony held last week was attended by the Prime Minister of Thailand, H.E. Srettha Thavisin, and the other key government ministers along with Thailand Board of Investment (BOI) and Delta Group executives. The inauguration of the Delta Plant 8 and R&D Center also marked Delta's 35 years of development in Thailand.
