The Company has manufacturing facilities and asphalt terminals located in the center of every region of the country with close proximity to our customers. With these four domestic manufacturing facilities strategically covering all regions, the Company can promptly deliver asphalt products to domestic customers in Thailand, as well as, to neighboring countries via its own fleet of 300 trucks. This unique logistic capability is core to Tipco Asphalt’s dominance of the domestic market. Building on this capability, the Company also owns and operates seven oceangoing asphalt vessels which significantly expand our presence in the export market. These vessels also import asphalt into Thailand.
Tipco Asphalt operates a refinery in Kemaman, Malaysia through its subsidiary, Kemaman Bitumen Company Sdn. Bhd.

This translates to production of about one million tons of asphalt cement per year.
