RAYONG, THAILAND - Delta Hydraulics officially completes Stage 1 of its a manufacturing facility in Rayong, Thailand with the opening of a 3,000 square meter manufacturing plant .
The factory consists of four manufacturing halls for cutting/welding, CNC machining, assembly and painting of single-stage piston hydraulic cylinders as well as quality assurance and Coordinate Measuring Machine capability.
This is supported by extensive administration and accommodation facilities.
The factory will produce lift, steer, tilt and ejection cylinders for international OEM customers, including Caterpillar. The factory is next door to Caterpillar Thailand Underground Mining, and across the road from Caterpillar's Thailand Tracks division.
