Engineering company, Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure, is set to open a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Vietnam.
The facility is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2025, and production to commence in 2026.
The upcoming facility’s location will be in the Phu My 3 Specialised Industrial Park (SIP) of Ba Ria Vung Tau province, one among eight provinces in the southern key economic zones of Vietnam.
This comes as a part of Trelleborg’s broader strategic roadmap to deliver long-term sustainable growth and ramp up manufacturing capabilities.
Trelleborg’s production capabilities in the marine fender, maritime construction, and infrastructure product categories are expected to be strengthened by the installation of a new facility in Vietnam.
The facility will complement the existing operations at its Qingdao-based site, which serves the Chinese market and other regions worldwide, according to Trelleborg.
Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg Marine and Infrastructure, said: “We’re excited to begin a new chapter in Vietnam – the third biggest economy in Southeast Asia.”
Hepworth added that with an established manufacturing facility already in Qingdao, China, Trelleborg saw it as a logical decision to build a second facility close by.
“With a brand-new base in Vietnam, we can further enhance our production standards and distribution network to serve customers more effectively, not just across the Asia-Pacific region but also beyond,” stated Hepworth.
Phu My 3 SIP has a strategic geographical position due to its proximity to major transportation routes.
It is approximately 60 kilometres from the southern business hub in Ho Chi Minh City, 2 kilometres from Cai Mep – Thi Vai Deep Sea Port, and around 30 minutes from the new Long Thanh International Airport, expected to open in 2025.
