The Beginning of “the Electrical Group”

           In 1977, those who involved in electrical business in ASEAN countries agreed to form the ASEAN Federation of Electrical
Engineering Contractors or AFEEC, founded by the Philippines and followed by four other countries: Malaysia, Indonesia,
Singapore and Thailand. At that time, the invitation to Thailand was given to the Thai Construction Industry Association under
H.M. the King's Patronage, which later appointed Dr. Prasat Chandratip, another Advisor, to gather the electrical contracting
professionals forming an electrical group under the Thai Construction Industry Association under H.M. the King's Patronage.

           The “Electrical Group” consisted of local electrical contractors and suppliers, and leaded by Dr. Silirak Chandharagsu
as a Chairman of the group. The group was assigned to contact directly with all of five member countries during the AFEEC
Convention and AFEEC Council Meeting

Transformation to “the Thai Electrical Contractors Association”

           With the continued effort and co-operation from Dr. Prasat Chandratip and other founding colleagues of the Electrical
Group, many activities such as seminars, meetings, etc. were carried out with primary goal of gathering all the persons who
interested and recognized the significance of the cohesion as an organization. This is to protect the profession right and profit,
and to upgrade the electrical profession to meet an international standard. The electrical activities in the country had been
growing up alongside with the continuous increasing of members. After two year, it had then officially registered under the name
“Thai Electrical Contractors Association or THECA” on November 29, 1985. Since then the Association had gained a momentum
in its existing, recognizing by the relevant government sectors, in particular, all three Thai Electricity Authorities.


At Present “Thai Electrical & Mechanical Contractors Association”

           In 1994, starting of the globalization era, the committee recognized that the Association should not limit itself to only
electrical business field, but it should open to other related fields such as air conditioning, plumbing, fire protection, communication,
etc. With this reason, the name of association was changed and re-registered to the new name of “Thai Electrical & Mechanical
Contractors Association or TEMCA”. In addition to the general activities, the Association has taken part in improving the standards
and the ethics of the business involved inengineering and installation practices in Thailand, The encouragement for the better
standard of engineering practices for all the engineering system works is also the part of the Association's main objective.

            It has also joined with other associations concerning construction business founded Federation of Design and It has also
joined with other associations concerning construction business founded Federation of Design and Construction Services of
Thailand or FEDCON with the purpose of penetrating to oversea markets.

            With the recognition of roles and duties of the Association, Board Committee is readily obliged to contribute the continuous
benefits for all members.
