CATL and Arun Plus partner up for CTP cooperation in Thailand



Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Limited (CATL) and Arun Plus Company Limited (Arun Plus) have recently reached an agreement on CTP (cell-to-pack) cooperation in Thailand to serve local EV manufacturers, enhancing the potentiality of Thailand to become battery production hub of ASEAN.

CATL will supply CTP production line to Arun Plus, and share with Arun Plus the knowledge and technologies of CTP battery pack manufacturing. 

Arun Plus is a wholly owned subsidiary of PTT Public Company Limited (PTT), which is Thailand's national oil company whose infrastructure has been well established throughout the country. In November 2022, Arun Plus set up a subsidiary to manufacture EVs to serve the rising demand in the region.

Built on a common vision for a greener future through the application of innovative technologies, this partnership will help empower Arun Plus's EV production capability, leading to the next step of building an EV battery ecosystem in Thailand and ASEAN in the future. 

The cooperation also marks another important step for CATL's global footprint as it explores diverse forms of cooperation in regional markets, thus accelerating e-mobility and energy transition of the world.
