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 BUILD.
BUILD will continue to encourage growth in supporting industries in Thailand through providing information on subcontracting opportunities by linking parts suppliers with the right manufacturers. BUILD also assists Thai SMEs to achieve industrial standards required for entering into productive subcontracting arrangements. With its extensive database on subcontractors in Thailand, BUILD 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.
BUILD 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.
BUILD 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.
BUILD organizes and co-organizes numerous business matching events to offer opportunities for both foreign or local buyers and suppliers to meet and discuss the possibilities to be business partners. Business Matching sessions with our network of members are also held regularly throughout the year both in Thailand and in international events.
ASEAN’S LEADING INDUSTRIAL SUBCONTRACTING AND BUSINESS MATCHING EVENT SUBCON Thailand is a prime regional event for the procurement of industrial parts and sourcing. This event is very well-received from foreign buyers and it is held every year in the middle of May at Bangkok International Trade Exhibition Center (BITEC).
Every year, BUILD 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.
BUILD also organizes other local activities that support business linkage and connect the supply chain of parts manufacturers such as:
