DIC Thailand

About

In 1960, Thaiwattana Industrial Co.,Ltd. was established with a registered capital of 4 Million Thai Baht as a joint-venture between DIC Japan and the local Thai Company – establishing a factory at Ladphao as the first ink manufacturer in Thailand. In 1980, DIC opened a new factory to support production expansion at Minburi.

DICGTH has consistently grown and expanded its operations, solidifying its position in the industry. This progress is evident through a continuous increase in our registered capital, leading up to the highly anticipated Grand Opening of our new plant in Amata Nakorn in 2005. Currently, our registered capital has reached an impressive 637 Million Baht.

With technical support from DIC Corporation and the worldwide DIC Group of companies, the new DIC Amata Plant was designed and created to have the largest production capacity among all printing ink for Southeast Asia and the Oceania region. In addition, the new DIC Amata Plant incorporates the Asia Oceania R&D laboratory for gravure ink and offset ink research.

Today, DICGTH employs 213 local staff.
