HCM City (VNA) - Knauf Vietnam Co., Ltd. has introduced its new gypsum board – Knauf StandardShield made in Vietnam - at a ceremony in HCM City on July 8.

The product will be manufactured at the new gypsum board manufacturing plant that opened in June in Hai Phong City's Dinh Vu Industrial Park. The factory has a capacity of 20 million square metres of gypsum board yearly.

After only 2 years setting up regional offices and local production in Vietnam, Knauf Vietnam has started to supply the Vietnamese market and gradually increase their brand awareness throughout Vietnam.

"Now we are able to provide locally-made and high quality products to the market in Vietnam. I believe that Knauf will be able to grow our market share by increasing our brand awareness and product presence," said David Victor Thomas – General Director of Knauf Vietnam.

At the ceremony, Knauf Vietnam also introduced two new distributors in the South, including the I.S Joint Stock Company and Dong Do Interior Decoration Joint Stock Company.
