SEI Thai Electric Conductor Co., Ltd. (STEC) is a new company established in April 2012 that made its first shipment in September 2014. Our main products are 1) copper rods and wires; 2) aluminum rods and wires, and aluminum bars for cutting; and 3) automotive aluminum electric wires. We supply electric wires mainly to our group companies in China, Southeast Asia, and elsewhere in the world. Regarding automotive aluminum electric wire, a business segment expected to grow in the future, we handle the entire process on premises, from aluminum ingots to electric wires for harnesses. There are no other companies like us in the world. We will continue supplying high-quality electric wire materials on a steady basis.

Working Hard Every Day to Extend Buildings and Introduce New Equipment

STEC is located in the Amata City Industrial Estate of Pluak Daeng District, Rayong Province, approximately 114 km southeast of Bangkok.

Transferred to STEC in February 2014, I’m now engaged in maintenance for all of STEC. My responsibilities include not only maintaining production equipment, but also inspecting and maintaining the STEC premises, including general utilities, and managing the construction and installation work and process of new plants and equipment.

STEC has a copper die-casting plant, a copper wire plant, an automotive aluminum electric wire plant, an aluminum die-casting plant, and an aluminum bar plant. I work hard every day not only to ensure stable operations at each plant, but also to extend buildings and introduce new equipment, thereby striving to realize further increased production.

Meanwhile, as a new company, we also focus on developing local staff members. I work in close cooperation with local staff to make STEC’s maintenance approach even more efficient.

Places of Interest

Place Where You Can View Elephants

On my way to work is a place where elephants leisurely stroll around. Of course, someone sits atop the elephants to control them, but it is very impressive to see them, even if small Asian elephants, strolling together in a line along the shoulder of an ordinary road.

Songthaew*

I live in Pattaya, 125 km away from Bangkok. Since there is little public transportation and no taxis here, citizens use songthaew instead. Although it doesn’t travel so far, you can get to anywhere along a designated route at only 10 baht (about 30 yen). When you ring the bell, you can get off the songthaew wherever you like.

Pattaya Beach

PATTAYA Beach
Pattaya Beach

Pattaya is a sightseeing destination on a shoreline. Every day I see buses carrying many tourists. This is a perfect place for marine sports, and you can enjoy a wide variety of single-day tours in parasailing, underwater-walking, scuba diving, and more. In addition, there are beer bars near the beach, and nothing is better than drinking beer while viewing the sun setting into the sea.

Thai Cuisine

I guess “Thai cuisine” might remind many people of Tom yam kung, but there are many other delicious dishes, too. Poo pad pong curry is a swimming crab fried in curry sauce together with eggs. Featuring a fluffy texture and mild taste, the dish is delicious, of course, as it is. But if eaten together with khao phat (Thai-style fried rice), it will surely please your palate more than anything else. Fragrant herbs are often used in Thai dishes, one typical herb being phak chi.
