Building on 40 years of composites experience, the Cobra Group has successfully brought its philosophy of Strong, Light and Beautiful products into the Automotive market.

In Bangkok on 6th March 1978, Mr. Vorapant Chotikapanich (the company’s current chairman and majority shareholder) opened the doors to ‘Windglider Thailand’. Established initially as an own-brand manufacturer, the company started its production with light-weight windsurf boards and changed its name to COBRA in 1985.

In 1987, COBRA started offering OEM, serving the worldwide market for composite watersports equipment, and by 1999 had become the leading manufacturer of windsurf boards with over 50% world market share. During this time, COBRA also expanded its product range to incorporate the significant surfboard and rapidly growing kiteboard markets with the aim of expanding its product line.

In 2005, COBRA entered into the Marine manufacturing business via a joint venture. In 2006, on receiving an initial order from a top-class German Automotive brand, COBRA entered a completely new market as a manufacturer of carbon parts for premium cars. Cobra Advanced Composites was established the same year.
