Ruangsangthai extends “Buriram House Builder Makita Tool Show”

Due to overwhelming tool sales, the first ever “Buriram House Builder Makita Tool Show” for Buriram Province, Thailand, Tradesmen has been extended until Wednesday January 14.  The Tool Expo and House Building Tradesmen exposition commenced on Sunday January 5th and is open from 8:30am to 5:30pm each day. 


Makita are exhibiting and demonstrating a wide range of power toolsincluding the launch of new 4.0Ah 18V Li-Ion battery system for the first time in Buriram, Thailand, together with Maktec 18V driver drills and a comprehensive range of accessories, house construction tools, and lawn mowers.


The top selling brand in Thailand, Makita Tools, which are exclusively assembled in Makita Manufacturing factories worldwide, including Chonburi, Thailand, will be discounted at the Buriram Tool Expo. Each day two Makita technical representatives will facilitate hands on comparisons to the specifications and prices of Baier, Bosch, DeWALT, Fein, Festool, Hilti, Hitachi, Kress, Metabo, Milwaukee, Panasonic, and Porter Cable power tools, brush cutters, lawn mowers and water pumps to the comparable Makita Tools with authorized service readily available in Buriram Province.


Mr. Ron Smith a U.K. native carpenter who is the proprietor of  Buriram ICE Furniture, states “Ruangsangthai has proven to me the reliable source to purchase or repair genuine Makita Power Tools used in custom closet and kitchen counter fabrication in my nine years of doing business in Buriram, Thailand.”


The Ruangsangthai Hardware Store has 93 full time sales and repair staff to compete with and thrive in the face of competition from established Buriram tool retailers and the newer home improvement centers HomePro, Thai Watsadu and I.Q. House Buriram.   Being the only builder’s merchant in Buriram Province or Surin Province which offer same day repair services enabled Ruangsangthai to retail fifteen million baht in Makita and Maktec tools in 2013. Even the newest competitor, Global House, offers no actual repair service of Makita tools inside their Korat or Surin stores.
