New CCGrass Vietnam factory increases dominant position in synthetic turf market
With the opening of the new CCGrass production facility in Phuoc Dong, Vietnam scheduled for early 2019, CCGrass will be adding a further 45,000,000sqm of synthetic turf manufacturing capacity to its current volume, further increasing our ability to supply our global customer network.
The new plant is under construction and plant commissioning well under way, as part of a two phase, investment of $120 million. Phase One will see a facility area of 150,000 sqm completed at a cost of $58.6 million in early 2019, with Phase Two ready by the end of the year. The total plant area will be 300,000 sqm, making it a similar size to the current CCGrass factory at Industrial Park Huai’an, commissioned in 2013. It will be the largest synthetic turf production facility in Vietnam.
Using the experience gained in production, factory management and technology from CCGrass’s two China plants, the new facility will contain brand new, industry leading production equipment. Experienced staff will transfer to Vietnam to oversee the employment and training of over 2,600 staff, recruited from the local communities.
Phuoc Dong is the largest industrial park in Vietnam and located at the crossroad of the Indo-China peninsula. Surrounded by a support network of motorways and within 100km of air and sea ports, it is the perfect location for logistical purposes.
Vietnam offers great opportunities for business, such as an open and friendly trade policy, that match CCGrass chairman, Mr. Wang QiangXiang’s expectations. He explains further:
“Our beliefs are to create together, share together and win together with our global clients, and our new Vietnam facility allows us to achieve these goals.”
