During the period all manufacturers of agricultural engine and automotive had imported most of components for their products from Japan so then Thai government launched the policy to promote for more localization contents. The consequence was start booming in domestic automotive component manufacturing industries. Both Thai and Japanese companies established their new facilities and most of Japanese auto makers also expanded their investment in Thailand.
After we had improved our pulley manufacturing machines we successfully obtained a lot of orders to supply our pulleys for automotive maker’s agricultural engines makers and also lift and elevator manufacturers. Then in year 2003 our company has changed the name to SHIBATA Manufacturing Co.,Ltd or SMC
