The company comprises of nine latex plants located in rubber plantation area in the east, south, and northeast of Thailand to push the exports up to 180,000 tons annually.
Over 90 percent of Thailand's natural rubber and products made from rubber are exported to overseas markets. The country's dependence on the world market means the industry is sensitive to price fluctuations in international trade, which in turn, is influenced by the prevailing global demand for natural rubber. Strong competition from other major natural rubber producing countries, like Malaysia and Indonesia, and climatic conditions are also important factors that significantly affect the rubber industry in Thailand.
At present, the global market situation is favorable to Thai latex concentrate producers as the global demand for natural rubber products continues to grow. Malaysia, having significantly reduced its own natural rubber production, is now importing latex concentrate from Thailand for manufacturing of rubber products.
Thai Rubber Latex Corporation's remarkable success over the years can be attributed to our long experience, unparalleled expertise and strategic planning, enabling us to thrive even in the worst economic situation. Our most important asset is our workforce. We value above all the professional operating methods of our management team and well trained staff.
