BANGKOK, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This year INTERMACH, ASEAN's Leading Industrial Machinery and Subcontracting Exhibition, will mark more than 30 years helping build successful business for the Thai and ASEAN manufacturing industry. The 2014 event will be one of the largest and most comprehensive industrial machinery and equipment displays in the region, featuring top global companies from over 40 countries.
INTERMACH is the first international industrial machinery exhibition of the year and coincides perfectly with the industry buying cycle. This enables exhibitors to deliver machinery to clients before the end of the business year, boosting their production efficiency.
Mr. Sanchai Noombunnam, Group Director, UBM Asia (Thailand) the show organizer, said, "The ASEAN Economic Community will help expand and connect businesses with greater efficiency. The cost of doing business in Thailand has risen considerably, with higher production costs coming from upstream production. As a result, products must provide better value, especially items that require precision, accuracy and quality. Thailand needs to manufacture products of greater complexity which are higher priced. Mass production will relocate to other ASEAN countries and items can then be imported back to Thailand for assembly.
"Currently, an emerging industry is the automotive area, but within a few years, there will be more changes, principally involving medical devices and aerospace parts. Production facilities are now being developed in Singapore, Japan, the USA and Europe to address this. Companies are already expanding their production to include subcontracting aerospace & medical advice equipment. These business opportunities will require new machinery and technology that provides customized automation using flexible modular techniques and integrated software. This technology will give entrepreneurs a competitive edge, helping reduce costs and increasing efficiency which will further advance ASEAN as a major manufacturing hub. INTERMACH will have much of this equipment on display at the 2014 show and it's an event you just can't afford to miss," the director added.
