In June 1992, the BOI Unit for Industrial Linkage Development or BUILD was established under Thailand Board of Investment (BOI) to support industrial linkage and use of industrial parts manufactured in Thailand. BUILD services offer channels to connect competitive Thai small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and large manufacturers with parts and component suppliers.
With the success of its activities, BUILD has been upgraded into a division under the BOI, the Industrial Linkage Development Division or ILDD.
ILDD will continue to encourage growth in supporting industries in Thailand through providing information on subcontracting opportunities by linking parts suppliers with the right manufacturers. ILDD also assists Thai SMEs to achieve industrial standards required for entering into productive subcontracting arrangements. With its extensive database on subcontractors in Thailand, ILDD is now your best partner to provide sourcing and business matching services. With these services, firms can be assured that their procurement process is well facilitated while saving production costs and time spent in finding domestic parts manufacturers.
ILDD will further strengthen its activities by organizing seminars, workshops, and networking forums in targeted industries of Thailand to provide in-depth information and help support Thai SMEs to be part of global supply chain of the growing next-generation industries.
ILDD provides sourcing service free of charge to both Thai and foreign buyers seeking parts and components in Thailand by identifying potential suppliers through email: firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, one-on-one meeting can also be arranged.
Every year, ILDD leads Thai companies to exhibit their industrial parts in many notable overseas trade shows in ASEAN, Japan, European countries, and others. This provides an opportunity for Thai companies to penetrate into the international market and become an integral part of the global supply chain.
ILDD also organizes other local activities that support business linkage and connect the supply chain of parts manufacturers such as:
A group of potential suppliers will be invited to visit buyer’s factory to learn and receive insights on buyer’s procurement selection criteria as well as specific know-how on products manufacturing.
The industrial venue will be arranged for buyers and suppliers to display their parts, which will open for business opportunities
ILDD arranges seminars on various interesting topics to enhance knowledge on particular industrial issues as well as BOI’s current policies in order to help increase competitiveness of Thai parts manufacturers.
ILDD helps connect investors interested to do joint venture by publicizing requests via website.
