Caterpillar plans to open a new manufacturing facility in Thailand to produce medium track-type tractors. Construction will begin on the new factory in 2011, with production scheduled to begin in late 2013.
The 430,000-square-foot factory will be built on the Hemaraj Rayong Industrial Land in Rayong Province. The facility will increase the global production of medium track-type tractors to respond to the growth in demand. Once the facility in Thailand is fully operational and at full capacity, it is expected to employ about 900 people.
Construction on Cat’s underground mining facility at Hemaraj Rayong Industrial Land is currently underway.
