Ninh Binh (VNA) – The Republic of Korean-based automobile part manufacturer ESMO Corporation inaugurated its 12.9-million-USD plant in the northern province of Ninh Binh on September 20.

Located at the Gia Phu industrial cluster in Gia Vien district, the ESMO VINA plant, built at a cost of more than 300 billion VND (12.9 million USD), spans 63,600 square metres.

The facility, capable of producing about 450,000 items annually, will become operational in early 2020.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Lee Huyn Chul, CEO of ESMO VINA, said the plant is ESMO’s new move to make inroads into the Southeast Asian market.
