“National Instruments’ business in Thailand has grown from strength to strength since we established our presence here in 2002. We are pleased to open the doors of our new office and engage more closely with our customers and partners in high-growth sectors like hard disk drive, electronics manufacturing, energy and oil & gas industries,” Nair added.

Office in Bangkok will serve as the hub for NI’s customer service programs and industry-leading technical trainings.

NI will be collaborating with more universities, and enabling competitiveness across customer verticals.

The company is already working with companies such as Sony Technology (Thailand), Thai Summit Autoparts Industry, Seagate Technology (Thailand) and PTT Public and players in the automotive, energy, and oil & gas sectors.

Asia-Pacific contributes about 30 percent to NI’s global revenue. Its rapid expansion in this region, particularly in developing countries like Thailand, is a testament to the scale and speed with which Asian economies are rising.

Thailand is also important for NI in the research and academic field. NI has partnerships with universities such as King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok. Notable programs include the annual Graphical Design System (GSD) Summit, Science, Technology, Engineering Exchange Laboratory (STEEL) Program, and the LabVIEW Academy.
