It was Thaco’s third export batch to the Korean company, including more than 200 2.5-tonne dump beds and 3,000-litre fuel tanks for trucks, since the beginning of 2018.
More 100 2.5-tonne dump beds and 3,000-litre fuel tanks will head to the RoK in the second half of this year under the two firms’ agreement.
To satisfy the high technical standards and strict quality required by JMK, Thaco has used advanced technologies in its production. The company has also employed advanced management tools like Kaizen, Lean manufacturing, Total Quality Management (TQM) and 5S alongside quality management systems.
Last year, Thaco launched the first made-in-Vietnam bus factory at Quang Nam province’s Chu Lai-Truong Hai Industrial Complex, with capacity of 20,000 buses and minibuses a year, mostly for export.
The Quang Nam-based automaker has also developed a supporting industry zone with 24 plants producing spare parts and accessories for local use and export.
Thaco, in cooperation with Japan’s Mazda Motor Corporation, has developed a new Mazda factory – the second such Mazda facility in Quang Nam province, with total investment of US$380 million.
Thaco currently assembles and distributes the Republic of Korea’s Kia, Japan’s Mazda, France’s Peugeot and BMW models.
