Following the partnership deal, CPT will immediately send staff to begin receiving overseas training which will make them fully capable of performing their roles in the production of first-rate power distribution panels. CPT will follow with developed prototypes, hoping to achieve commercial operation in the fourth quarter.
Mrs Suwannee Singluedej, Senior Vice President and Head of Siemens Smart Infrastructure, said “Siemens is aware of the importance of having a local partner who can increase capacity and efficiently employ SIEMENS technologies in upgrading Thai industrial firms’ production environment. Seimens decision to ally with CPT will allow it to grow its presence in Thailand’s power distribution panel market rapidly.
