Recently, in the effort to further expand regionally in Thailand under the government project, and the 2nd Lean Automation System Integrators (LASI) Learning Factory was established at Sumipol Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTec) in Rayong at the center of the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) area.

DENSO will continue to support ASEAN communities by transferring various know-how to improve ASEAN manufacturing practice and productivity through the delivery of industrial solutions to factories, such as Factory Automation and Internet of Things (IoT), manufacturing technologies, and educate the locals the principle of "KAIZEN (continuous improvement)" practice, the core-value for manufacturing industry.
