Mitsubishi Motors Corp. is hiring 1,300 workers in Thailand, the latest sign of a global auto recovery, coming a day after Toyota announced it was adding 800 employees in Japan.
Mitsubishi, Japan’s fifth biggest automaker, said Wednesday it’s hiring the workers for its two auto assembly plants and one engine plant in Thailand.
Mitsubishi, which had been battered by the global slump like other Japanese automakers, reduced its 1,100 temporary workers at its Thai plants in January and had no temporary workers in the country, company spokesman Yuki Murata said. Workers with previous experience will get preference in hiring, he said.
