Motorcycle and car maker celebrates 20th anniversary in Vietnam with commitment to the future.
Honda Vietnam (HVN), the Honda Group’s manufacturer and distributor of motorcycles and automobiles in Vietnam, committed to long-term growth in the country at a ceremony held in Hanoi recently to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
“Honda Vietnam has remained committed to creating and delivering products and services that bring joy to its customers,” said Mr. Tetsuo Iwamura, Executive Vice President, Executive Officer, and Representative Director of Honda Motor.
As a result, the company has grown to the point that sales in Vietnam contribute around 10 per cent of Honda’s annual global motorcycle sales, he added. “I hope the company is regarded as one that Vietnamese society wants to exist through its products, services, and contributions to society,” he said.
Honda Vietnam also presented 243 Honda motorcycles to the Police Force at the ceremony.
On the special occasion Honda Vietnam also received a Certificate of Merit from the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC) for its continued dedication to ensuring road safety, as well as a Government Award signed by Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on behalf of Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung for the company’s excellent operations.
Honda Vietnam was founded in 1996 as a distributor of Honda motorcycles and began motorcycle production in 1997 at its factory in northern Vinh Phuc province.
The company expanded its business scope to the automobile business when it started manufacturing automobiles in 2006. Since its establishment HVN has invested approximately $530 million and currently has about 10,000 agents around the country. It has delivered some 20 million motorcycles and 44,000 automobiles to Vietnamese customers.
HVN has also initiated various social activities, in education, environmental protection, community assistance, and traffic safety programs.
