Construction of the company's assembly facility in Thailand is scheduled to be complete in August and equipment installation will begin thereafter. "We expect to ship products for customer qualification from our Thailand facility early in fiscal 2011," said Skarvan.Regarding the outlook for suspension assembly demand, Skarvan said the company currently expects its fiscal 2010 fourth quarter shipments to decline 5 to 10 percent compared with the third quarter as a result of share losses with certain customers. "While it will take longer than we previously expected to regain market share, we believe that our strategic investments in our TSA+ process capabilities and our assembly operation in Thailand will further lower our costs and strengthen our competitive position," said Skarvan.
