Over 60 years ago, the first company in Pinthong Group was first established as a small metal trading business in the "Mahaprutharam" area. With the belief that the business still has plenty of room to grow as well as the need of the business to be adjusted as the traditional trading system through middle man were saturated, the new marketing and sales strategies were adopted. Metal products were then imported to sell locally without the middle man. From then, the company has expanded to not only trade, but also manufacture, process as well as produce semi-goods to serve the growing demand of the market. Today Pinthong Group consists of 23 companies in 4 business units, including Steel & Metal business unit, Industrial Parts business unit, Real Estate & Warehouse business unit and Transportation & Car Rental business unit, with the total registered capital of more than 2,200 million baht and employs more than 1,800 people. With our solid foundation, we are still moving forward and be ready for any new business venture to come. The history can speak for itself as you can see from our development below.
