The Schindler Vietnam Co. officially opened a new high-tech factory on October 29 at the Hiep Phuoc Industrial Zone in Ho Chi Minh City’s Nha Be district.

The factory will contribute to bringing the vision and goals of the world’s leading elevator manufacturer’s operations in Vietnam into reality and help to lift the quality of elevator spare parts and components, with the factory set to become Schindler’s manufacturing hub in Southeast Asia in the future.

Construction on the project commenced in early March, with investment of $8 million, and covers an area of over 1 ha, making it twice the size of the previous factory.

The new factory has been outfitted with state-of-the-art machinery, including robot welding machines, a Bystronic laser cutting machine (from Switzerland), a Wagner powder coating line (Germany), CNC machines (the US), and a Growell shot blasting machine (Thailand).

The new factory will triple the company’s local production capacity in the next five years, helping it to meet the needs of major markets such as the US, Australia, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.

Products produced by the Schindler Vietnam factory include brackets, separate beams, guide rail installation kits (GRIK), and CLIMB Lifts, as well as a variety of safety products such as entrance guards, barriers, and door stoppers.

It also focuses on saving energy in production with a design that optimizes natural light and wind, minimizes waste, and applies strict management procedures to hazardous waste treatment and chemical substances.

Schindler will ensure compensation for employees is in accordance with relevant industry regulations and the strict standards of the Schindler Group, while at the same time demonstrating its corporate responsibility with regard to the environment and the community.

Thanks to the application of advanced technology in manufacturing, the company has completely removed the acid used for product surface treatment, which helps minimize the impact on the environment and ensures the health of workers.

Mr. Duong Quy Suu, Director of Schindler’s Vietnam Factory, said that with strong investment in the production system, Schindler hopes to expand the elevator market in the country in order to meet the high demand of domestic and international customers.

“With high-quality products and strict production lines controlled by the government and the group’s regulations, Schindler’s new factory will open up opportunities for Vietnam’s elevator industry to achieve new heights in quality products and services, promising to lift Vietnam’s elevator industry to a leading position in the world,” Mr. Suu added.
