Bangkok, May 1, 2018 – REPI, a world leader in manufacturing of liquid colours and additives for plastics, is continuing its global expansion adding a new company in Thailand. This represents a natural step forward of the 20-year partnership with one of REPI’s historical distributors in the region. Now the Group is ready to start a direct business to strengthen its potential in Asia.
REPI THAI CO. LTD will take over the existing business in the ASEAN region both in the Polyurethanes and in the Thermoplastics business units with ambitious targets of growth in the coming years. This operation is another promising step for REPI to expand market presence in Asia and Bangkok is a strategic location to serve the surrounding countries. Thanks to the direct presence, it will be possible to offer better service and further benefits to customers. The new unit will provide commercial support and technical service to all clients in the region as well as fast colour-development capabilities, which are crucial in order to serve customers just-in-time.
