The MinebeaMitsumi Group's business in Thailand started with the establishment of a company in Ayutthaya Province, which is located to the north of the capital city Bangkok, in 1980. In the subsequent period of nearly four decades, operations expanded to six plants, and as a result of the 2017 business integration with Mitsumi Electric, the Chonburi Plant, located to the southeast of Bangkok, was added to the Group for a current total of seven plants. The combined output of the seven plants in Thailand accounts for approximately 40% of the Group's total production, making Thailand the Group's largest production site.
The Group has approximately 35,000 employees in Thailand, making it one of the largest foreign-affiliated employers in the country. Many people in nearby communities work at the plants, and there are numerous instances of multiple generations from the same family working for the Group. In addition, the value of products exported to countries around the world is approximately 350 billion yen annually, making a significant contribution to the economic development of Thailand. The presence and awareness of the MinebeaMitsumi Group in the local community is quite high and General Manager of Regional Affairs for South East Asia Masayuki Imanaka, who oversees local operations, points out that "When a company reaches this scale, the relationship with the local community becomes crucial as a matter of course. It is essential that we respond appropriately to the expectations of both employees and the local community."
