is pushing ahead with the significant expansion of its plant in Bac Ninh in northern Vietnam. A state-of-the-art facility for mortar production has come on stream alongside the existing production of concrete admixtures.
More stringent building regulations in Vietnam require the use of ready-mixed mortar. In addition to more stringent regulatory requirements in the construction sector, Vietnam is experiencing a massive construction boom, where rising education and prosperity levels fuel demand for high-quality, high-performance building materials.
"The new mortar facility in Bac Ninh is a targeted investment in the expansion of our production capacity around the Hanoi metropolitan region," said Mike Campion, regional manager Asia Pacific. "It enables us to deliver significantly faster growth in northern Vietnam and optimize our cost structure, with the elimination of long transport distances. Our customers benefit from an enhanced, high-performance portfolio of products that is aligned with building standards, as well as from shorter lead times."
