PARIS, January 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
In order to reinforce its leadership in Vietnam and support its growth strategy in the region, Saint-Gobain has decided to build its second plasterboard plant in the country. The Haiphong plant will come in addition to existing capacity in Ho Chi Minh in Southern Vietnam. This will ensure better commercial presence and better service for our customers. The new plant is expected to start up at the end of 2018.
With this investment, Saint-Gobain's Gypsum Activity will consolidate its presence in South East Asia where it already operates 8 different manufacturing sites (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam).
Saint-Gobain designs, manufactures and distributes materials and solutions which are key ingredients in the wellbeing of each of us and the future of all. They can be found everywhere in our living places and our daily life: in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and in many industrial applications. They provide comfort, performance and safety while addressing the challenges of sustainable construction, resource efficiency and climate change.
