JCU VIETNAM CORPORATION was established in March 2007 and will celebrate its 15th anniversary next year. With an office in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, in 2014 we established a production plant of about 6,000 m2 in Dong Van II Industrial Park, Hanam Province, which is about an hour's drive from Hanoi. We also set up a sales office in Ho Chi Minh City and established a total of 3 bases in Vietnam. There are a total of 23 employees, including 3 Japanese expatriates and 20 Vietnamese staff. We provide sales and technical support for motorcycle / automobile part's decoration chemicals, printed wiring board's chemicals, wastewater treatment equipment, related materials, mainly to Japanese companies in Vietnam.
This year, in order to further improve our technical support capabilities, we will introduce a pilot plant room at the Ha Nam factory so that in Vietnam we can process samples for evaluation and investigate the cause of troubles for customers.
This will shorten the delivery time and verification time to Japan and improve the skills of staff, so it will be possible to provide customers with the same level of engineering service as in Japan. Even under the influence of COVID-19, the Vietnamese economy has a high GDP growth rate of 4.5% in Q1 2021, attracting worldwide attention and foreign companies are planning factory construction in Vietnam.
We hope that Vietnam will develop further and become the center of Southeast Asia in the future, and will make efforts to further enhance its services and satisfy our customers.
