Vietnam Production Facility
The Vietnamese facility, located in Ho Chi Minh City, started production of magnetic windings for use in our power converters in 2012. By 2015 the volume of magnetics had continued to rise and 4.3 million magnetic windings were produced in Vietnam during 2015 (2014: 3.6 million). In the fourth quarter of 2014 the first complete power converters were built in the Vietnam facility. Since then, production has continued to increase.
The facility demonstrates our attitude to the environment as it is the most environmentally friendly manufacturing facility in our industry and the first industrial building to achieve the Gold Plus rating from the BCA Green Mark Scheme, the leading environmental standard set by the Singapore Building and Construction Authority for non-residential buildings in tropical climates. This rating covers not only energy efficiency of the building but also water efficiency, environmental protection, indoor environmental quality and other “green” features and innovations.
