BANGKOK (Biz Hub) — Two exhibitions of auto parts and electronic parts manufacturing technologies opened on June 19 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre in Thailand.

Manufacturing Expo and Nepcon Thailand, the largest of their kind in any ASEAN member nation, have attracted more than 1,600 brands from 30 countries, an increase of 20 per cent from last year, according to Suttisak Wilanan, project director of Reed Tradex, the organiser of the events.

Manufacturing Expo focuses on machinery and technology for the production of automotive parts divided into four manufacturing sectors -- plastics and rubber manufacturing, mold and die manufacturing, metal automotive parts, and automation in manufacturing.
