Company Background

Italian-Thai Development is the largest construction contractor in Thailand. Its landmark construction projects include Bangkok's new international Suvarnabhumi Airport and the capital's mass transit subway system. The company was established in 1958 by a Thai Chaijudh Karnasuta and Italian Giorgio Berlingieri. Currently the company is run by an all-Thai management team led by members of the Karnasuta family. The current president Premchai Karnasuta is the second son of co-founder Chaijudh.

Premchai has been expanding the company's international operations with projects such as New Delhi's subway system and an expressway in Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka.

In 2010, the Myanmar government granted the company a 75-year lease and the right to develop an industrial district in its Dawei special economic zone, a site of 250 sq. km. But in November 2013, the Myanmar government announced its cancellation of the agreement in favor of a joint venture with the Thai government, due to its lack of confidence in Italian Thai's ability to finance the huge project. The company lost rights to the overall project, but hopes to construct ports and electricity power plants in the district.

Business Summary

Italian-Thai Development Public Co., Ltd. is engaged in the construction and development of real estate properties. Its services include construction of buildings, industrial plants, pipeline, and utility works for public infrastructure. The company was founded by Chaijudh Karnasuta and Giorgio Berlingieri on August 15, 1958 and is headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand.
