Engel Opens Subsidiary In Vietnam
Injection machine manufacturer and system supplier Engel Austria, Schwertberg, has opened a sales and service subsidiary in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Until now, Engel Singapore was responsible for business in Vietnam. Thomas Lim, managing director at Engel Singapore, will continue to support the colleagues in Ho Chi Minh City. The local contact is Duc Hieu Nguyen, who has just joined Engel.
The Vietnamese injection molding industry is characterized by the investments of the major international electronics companies and OEMs that produce for example smartphones and tablet PCs in the region and have announced that they will be transferring more production to Vietnam. For many years already, Engel has been supplying these companies with injection molding machines and integrated system solutions. Among others, Samsung is one of the long-standing partners.
Besides the teletronics industry, chances are opening in the areas of packaging, household goods and construction. Currently, numerous injection molding companies are being founded. Customers can benefit from the fact that Engel is the only Western injection molding machine manufacturer that is represented with several production plants in Asia and that produces the entire spectrum of machines for processing thermoplastic, duroplastic and elastomer materials locally. "Today, we generate 85 percent of our turnover with our local production in Asia," says Dr. Christoph Steger, Chief Sales Officer at Engel Austria. "This means we can guarantee short delivery times for our customers and ensures that we can adapt our injection moulding machines and system solutions very flexibly to the country-specific requirements."
