The factory will be built on an area of 9.7 hectares in Van Quan and Dinh Chu communes of Lap Thach district.

Once operational, the plant is expected to employ 2,500 workers, earn nearly 870 billion VND (38.2 million USD) from exports and contribute 150 billion VND (6.5 million USD) to the State budget per year.
