Aims to become the top metal coatings producer in the ASEAN canned food market
Toyo Ink SC Holdings, the Japan-based parent company of the specialty chemicals company Toyo Ink Group, announced that, on March 10, 2023, it and its consolidated subsidiary Toyo Ink (Thailand) Co., Ltd. concluded a share purchase agreement to wholly acquire Thai Eurocoat Ltd., the top manufacturer of external coatings for non-printed cans in the Thai canned food market.
Following the transfer of shares, Thai Eurocoat, which is based in Samut Sakhon province, will retain its name and operate as a business unit of Bangkok-based Toyo Ink Thailand. Through the acquisition, the Toyo Ink Group will expand its regional business operations with the aim of becoming the top metal coatings supplier in the ASEAN canned food market.
“We are pleased to welcome Thai Eurocoat to the Toyo Ink Group family,” said Jun Mikoshiba, president of Toyo Ink Thailand.
“The Group has been operating in Thailand since 1971 and began the local production of can coatings in 1988 with the establishment of Toyo Ink Thailand. Over the years, we’ve expanded our business by taking advantage of our ability to develop advanced resins, mainly for can coatings that require high functionality. Thai Eurocoat is expected to complement these operations and to expand our business throughout the ASEAN region. Thai Eurocoat has a solid reputation among its customers for its product customization and commercialization knowhow based on a strong customer-focused approach to product development. By combining our strengths, we aim to further reinforce our capability to resolve customers’ issues with innovative metal packaging solutions that our customers will continue to trust.”
