INTERMAT ASEAN and Concrete Asia presents New Perspectives on Construction and Concrete
“We are pleased to have the support of the Thai Contractors Association under His Majesty King’s Patronage, as the co-host for INTERMAT ASEAN; and the Thailand Concrete Association and Asian Concrete Construction Institute as co-hosts for Concrete Asia. With their support, we are confident to deliver enhanced and comprehensive editions this year,” shared Ms. Pornphan Bulner, Director, IMPACT Exhibition Organizer, IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd.
Adapting to changes in the industry
The construction industry in Thailand is forecasted to grow at an average of 8-12%* till 2019 with positive consequences for construction contractors, resulting in an increase in backlogs or the volume of work available.
Said Mr. Sangvorn Lipatapanlop, President, Thai Contractors Association under H.M. the King’s Patronage, “With the increase in projects, INTERMAT ASEAN serves as the perfect platform for contractors to explore new innovations to reduce production costs, reduce project completion time and offset labour demands while increasing productivity.”
“Concrete companies are compelled to raise production to meet the demand for concrete products in the construction projects. However, increasingly, focus is placed on innovation to reduce the environmental impact,” expressed Dr. Pichai Nimityongskul, Founding President and Advisor, Thailand Concrete Association.
