Ake Panich was founded by Mr.Narong Utranusorn in 1978. Through his long experience in selling and renting traditional rickshaws and three wheelers, he saw an opportunity to improve the performance of these three wheeled vehicles. He tried to modify the traditional rickshaws by installing motors and adjusting their appearance and performance according to the market demand. The first Skylab or Sport Tuk Tuk was launched in July 1978 and then it became popular rapidly in the northeast. At present, Skylab is considerably developed to be much more fashionable, more standard, and fitting customers’ demand better. Our market has expanded to the other parts of Thailand and foreign countries.

The company was found by Mr.Narong Utranusorn in 1978. At the beginning, he modified to put a motor in a three-wheeler and tried to improve it as the customers’ demand. At that time this vehicle was generally called “Skylab”.
