Your Thailand distributor or agent: how to find the best one?

Thailand: double digit growth percentages

Thailand has around 69 million inhabitants, of which 10 million live in the Bangkok region. The consuming class, those who have more to spend than just for the basic necessities, will grow from 30 million to 36 million in the next four years. The market for consumer goods and processed food products will grow with over 10% annually. The current political situation has only added to the economic stability and growth of the country.

How to find your agent or distributor?

Bangkok is the place to start, all major organisations have their headquarters there. For services and industrial products this can be a good place to start with quite some coverage. Chiang Mai is the economic centre for the North and can be a good extension.

Finding an agent or distributor requires good knowledge of the Thai language and a good understanding of the culture. Without this it will be difficult to get access to the market.

After your approval we find the right decision maker, approach him or her personally and share your business profile with them. This mostly leads to 3-5 companies who are suitable as your partner and interested in working with you. Once we have found these companies, we plan your meetings and accompany you during the first visits.
