In 2018, Charoen Aksorn Holding Group along with two other companies (Cho Thavee Public Co., Ltd. and Eason Paint Public Co., Ltd., holding minority shares) established ALL S Holding Co., Ltd. to invest in the auto assembly and public conveyance industry by way of the "London Taxi" project. In August 2019, ALL S Holding Co., Ltd. signed an assembly contract with a long-established contract vehicle assembler, Bangchan General Assembly Co., Ltd. (BGAC). In December 2019, Eason Paint PLC increased its investment in ALL S Holding by about twofold.

It is however not clear what the relationship between ALL S Holding Co., Ltd. and Asia Cab Co., Ltd. is: whether Asia Cab Co., Ltd. is acting on behalf of ALL S Holding Co., Ltd. or has taken over the project entirely from the latter. Assembly of the AS4 cab is taking place at Bangchan Industrial Estate.
