The Siam Cement Public Co. Ltd.

Company Background

Siam Cement is Thailand's largest producer of construction materials. The holding company's three main units are cement and building materials, chemical products and paper. The Cotto ceramics brand is part of its cement and building materials business.


Siam Cement was established in 1913 following a royal decree by His Majesty King Rama VI to produce cement for the increased number of infrastructure projects at that time. The boom in construction was aimed at accelerating the country's economic development. The Crown Property Bureau is still the group's largest shareholder, controlling a 30% stake.


Kan Trakulhoon became CEO of Siam Cement in 2006. He assumed the leadership after filling various managerial posts in areas including the chemical, cement and ceramics sectors.


The company is now pushing to expand abroad ahead of the Asean Economic Community, due to begin at the end of 2015. Most of the company's 250-billion-baht (about $7.7 billion) investment is earmarked for projects outside Thailand over the five years through 2019. Four new cement plants are already in the pipeline for Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos. By increasing overseas production, Kan is aiming for a 2019 target of almost 50% of the Siam Cement global workforce being outside of Thailand, up from the current ratio of 30%.
