Yanmar Co., Ltd.

Yanmar opened a new factory in Thailand for the production of tractors.
Known as one of the major agricultural markets of Asia, Thailand is on
the road to mechanizing its agricultural industry in recent years.
Yanmar started the sales of tractors in Thailand back in 2004, and has
since developed a strong after-sales service network.
Aiming at further business expansion in the region, Yanmar enlarged
production capacity at the Bangkok-based Yanmar S.P. Co., Ltd.
subsidiary. The focus will be on meeting the demands in Thailand and the
surrounding countries.

Expansion of the agricultural machinery range is planned as well.
