As the labor market tightens and salary prices continue to rise, many already manufacturing in China are looking south; to Vietnam. Global manufacturers are always looking for the next frontier. Years ago China became the ‘option’ for Japan for the same reasons Vietnam is becoming an attractive alternative to China.
So, why does it work to manufacture in Vietnam?
Products being manufactured in Vietnam run from the simple to the complex; from the labor intensive to the highly automated. When East West first started producing in Vietnam, we were manufacturing vibration isolation components, extreme temperature/exposure rubber bushings for power distribution, plastic extrusions, PVC & CVPC (high temperature PVC), and Industrial textiles. While we still support many customers with these products we also manufacture world class EC Motors in one of our Vietnam contract manufacturing facilities that also houses its own Electronics Manufacturing Center PCB’s.
What do you think? Is Vietnam becoming the new China?
