In 1984, Padaeng Industry constructed a zinc refinery in Tak province, 96 kilometres from the Mae Sot Mine, for the production of zinc ingots. The initial production capacity of 60,000 metric tons per year was increased to 72,000 metric tons per year in 1987. In 1988, zinc die-casting alloy No. 3 was added as an additional product, and in 1997, the overall production capacity reached 110,000 metric tons per year.

With the reduction of raw material resources available at Mae Sot Mine, Padaeng Industry changed its smelting process in 1995, and began incorporating calcine as a feedstock. With the new smelting process, Padaeng Industry became one of the few smelters in the world capable of using both zinc silicate and zinc sulphide in the same production process.
