Established in 1965 as Honda’s first production facility in Thailand, Thai Honda Manufacturing Co., Ltd. began producing power products in 1987. The company marked the milestone of cumulative production of 25 million units today, only two years after achieving the 20 million unit milestone in July 2012. A ceremony to commemorate the occasion was held at the plant, which is located in Bangkok.
Currently, Thai Honda produces a variety of high-quality power products such as general-purpose engines, water pumps, and brush cutters for customers in over 80 countries worldwide including Thailand, Japan, countries in Europe and North America, and elsewhere. Honda’s power products are used for a wide range of purposes such as agriculture, civil engineering, and for household needs and recreation. The most famous product is the small and lightweight GX engine series, which complies with CARB (California Air Resources Board) Tier III regulations, the most stringent emission regulation in the USA. Annual production capacity for power products is now approximately three million units.
Moving towards the next milestone, Honda will start exporting the new backpack sprayer models WJR4025T and WJR2525T, the first power products in Thailand fully developed by Honda R&D Southeast Asia Co., Ltd. and produced by Thai Honda, to the global market including Southeast Asian countries, India and Latin America countries.
First premiered in Thailand in May 2014, the new backpack sprayer is powered by a durable, environmentally-friendly and fuel efficient Mini 4-stroke engine. It offers high-quality features and a special design, with highlights including an ergonomic back pad design and a slim tank shape to provide comfort; a durable belt, holder and pump for longer hours of work; a longer spray distance from the high-quality pump and nozzle; and Honda’s original nozzle holder for security. Global sales will begin in October 2014.
