10 November 2016 – Leading diversified industrial group, Jebsen & Jessen (SEA), is celebrating 10 years of successful operations of its packaging business unit in Vietnam. First launched in 2006 with 15 employees, Jebsen & Jessen Packaging today employs over 386 staff in Vietnam.
Mr Chui Tau Siong, Regional Managing Director of Jebsen & Jessen Packaging said, “Vietnam is one of the bright sparks of South East Asia and growth has been exponential. With a growing number of international firms investing in Vietnam and leveraging the country’s bright and able workforce to produce goods for the global economy, there is a need for reliable and good quality suppliers of packaging material especially for the electrical and electronics sector. We are excited to be part of this growth and have invested in a second plant which will start operations in January 2017.”
The packaging sector plays an essential part in Vietnam’s economy, providing high quality containers, protective casings and pallets to ensure high value electronic and consumer goods are kept safe while being shipped to customers around the world. Jebsen & Jessen is the market leader in North Vietnam, servicing customers such as Canon, Brother Industries and Samsung Electronics.
Mr Loh Chin Joo, General Director of Jebsen & Jessen Packaging (Vietnam) said, “There is a strong demand in the market for packaging that is environmentally sustainable and cost effective. Because of our technology and scalability, we have been able to address customer needs and pull ahead of the competition. Recently, we helped a major brand owner to create a packaging solution within 3 days, far outpacing the industry standard of two weeks. Bringing together best-in-class expertise from around the world, the team developed Airdex, the world’s lightest pallet, for Samsung which enabled the Korean conglomerate to have substantial savings in airfreight costs and reduce its environmental impact, while improving the overall safety of its logistic chain.”
As a group, Jebsen & Jessen (SEA) has two manufacturing facilities and three offices in Vietnam. Their team of 560 staff across Vietnam work as one to serve customers through its cable technology, ingredients, material handling, packaging and technology business units.
