“We have launched several new insurance products to increase the current revenue stream, and we are embarking on customer focused campaigns to both launch the rebranding and to spur sales.To this end, we are investing 1 billion baht into the Thai and Indonesian operations soon in order to promote and grow our business in these two markets.”
“Our target is to become one of the top 10 insurance companies in Thailand,” Mrs Foong added.

This is a market leading product which developed with the customer in mind.The new Home Insurance package includes cover for loss against floods, windstorms and earthquakes, and provides rental cost of temporary accommodation in the event of disaster.

Tata Tiscon holds seminar on disaster prevention

Major steel manufacturer and distributor Tata Steel (Thailand) under it’s brand Tata Tiscon, held a seminar at the Holiday Inn Chiang Mai Hotel on natural disasters and the need for high quality construction materials designed to withstand stress from earthquakes in buildings.

Songsak Piyawannarat, Vice President of Marketing and Sales of Tata Steel (Thailand) Public Company Limited addressed development companies on the need for earthquake resistant steel.

Chiang Mai remains at risk from seismic activity and many structures are not earthquake proof. Tata Tiscon produces a premium grade steel Tata Super Duck Tile SD40 which is a new vibration resistant product from the company.
Songsak Piyawannarat, Vice President of Marketing and Sales of Tata Steel (Thailand) Public Company Limited, said that natural disasters such as earthquakes or wind storms are increasing day by day and causing more and more damage. He noted that Chiang Mai is at risk for earthquakes as it is near the fault line in Burma. He added that while earthquakes cannot be predicted, they do not need to cause such a large loss in life and property.
He noted that the steel frame is key from the very beginning of construction of a building as it is like the backbone of a human body, holding up the entire structure and it must be both strong and flexible. (PR)
