The Dong Nai factory of Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam (ZSV) has been recently certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) after meeting standards in steel building structures and also received The Sophisticated Paint Endorsement (SPE) from the Institute.

ZSV therefore becomes the first steel structure provider to receive AISC certification in Vietnam and is ranked among the world’s most trusted structural steel suppliers for large-scale industrial projects.

The AISC, headquartered in Chicago, is a not-for-profit technical institute and trade association established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry in the US and worldwide. AISC’s mission is to make structural steel the material of choice by being the leader in structural steel-related technical and market-building activities, including specification and code development, research, education, technical assistance, quality certification, standardization, and market development.

In its 95 years serving the construction industry, AISC has set the standards for steel construction quality and are followed by US steel makers.

AISC’s Standard for Steel Building Structures is widely recognized among North American builders and contractors in assessing the fabricator’s capability to satisfy project quality needs. The standard includes all requirements for certification of facilities that fabricate and supply structural steel frames for buildings and a quality management system with functions and responsibilities. 

Structural steel fabricators must undergo an initial evaluation program, audited directly by AISC’s independent auditors, in order to be certified and are subject to yearly review. The audit scope includes all functions of structural steel fabrication, from the receipt of the contract until final delivery, excluding the erection process.

SPE, meanwhile, is a program included in the AISC’s Standard for Steel Building Structures Certification and inspects the fabricator’s painting facility for complex protective coating systems, such as zincs, epoxies, urethanes, and multi-coat systems.

An AISC-certified fabricator for steel building structures is automatically certified for conventional steel building structures. By meeting AISC’s Standard for Steel Building Structures, fabricators are confirmed by the AISC as having the facilities, personnel, organizational experience, procedures, knowledge, equipment, and commitment for structural steel building construction.

An AISC fabricator is often entrusted with large public service and institutional buildings, heavy manufacturing plants, powerhouses, metal producing/rolling buildings, stadiums, auditoriums, high-rise buildings, and chemical and petrochemical plants.  

Established in 1997, ZSV is a joint venture between the Zamil Industrial Investment Co. and MITSUI & Co., Ltd. from Japan. It specializes in providing steel building solutions for various applications in construction, from institutional, recreational and commercial construction to heavy industrial buildings.

ZSV’s headquarters are located in Keangnam Landmark Tower in Hanoi, with two state-of-the-art manufacturing plants at the Noi Bai Industrial Zone in Hanoi and the AMATA Industrial Zone in southern Dong Nai province.

With the most sophisticated technology and modern manufacturing facilities, ZSV’s factories produce up to 120,000 metric tons of steel building parts per year when operating at capacity, giving the company the ability to supply projects of all sizes and budgets. 

During the company’s 19 years it has established 16 representative offices in ten Southeast Asian countries while also successfully introducing its services to over 60 countries worldwide.
