Thailand is often overlooked as a manufacturing destination these days. While there’s a lot of hype surrounding Vietnam, and other “anywhere but China” destinations – Thailand is a more realistic option for small buyers and Amazon sellers.
In order to find qualified suppliers, you’ll likely need a sourcing company based in the kingdom.
In this article, we list some of Thailand’s leading sourcing companies covering a wide range of product categories.

Why should I source products in Thailand?
While many importers primarily think about Vietnam and India as the main “anywhere but China” destinations, Thailand is – at least for some product categories – a more realistic option.
Let me explain why.
Thailand is arguably the most developed low-cost manufacturing country in South East Asia. While large companies can build new factories wherever it’s cheaper to operate, that is not the case for small buyers.
Thailand’s existing manufacturing base is, therefore, a more realistic alternative for small businesses importing from Asia.
Besides, a business trip to Thailand once in a while isn’t a bad way to add to your tax deductibles.
What kind of products can I import from Thailand?
Thailand offers a diverse OEM and ODM manufacturing base covering everything from textiles and handicrafts to electronics. Here’s an overview:
Keep in mind that it’s not uncommon to find trading companies and wholesalers offering products imported from China. We, therefore, recommend that you work directly with manufacturers.
Why should I work with a sourcing company in Thailand?
People have a tendency to complain about Alibaba.com and other supplier directories. However, when trying to step out of China and look for suppliers elsewhere it quickly becomes apparent that Alibaba is not so bad after all.
What I want to get to is that it’s rather difficult to find suppliers in Thailand on supplier directories. There are local options such as Thaitrade.com, but it’s not nearly as big as Alibaba or Globalsources.com.
A sourcing agent on the ground in Thailand can help you bridge that gap. In addition to simply finding suitable suppliers, they can also assist with communication, order follow-ups and quality control.
Most Thailand-based sourcing companies are located in the capital of Bangkok.
