In 1994, Vietnam’s very first ceramic tiles were produced in the Viglacera Hanoi tile factory, using the technology from Welko – a leading Italian ceramic manufacturer. The advent of this high-quality product raised the domestic standards for building material production.
At that time, the first products made from that plant were the first hand-baked clay bricks on the market. These bricks, however small, laid the firm foundation for the development of Vietnam’s building materials industry.
In this Vietnam Innovators episode, Hao Tran talks with Ranko Lukić – Chief Commercial Officer of Viglacera Corporation – about the journey of Viglacera’s pioneering role in the building material industry in Vietnam and becoming one of the brands that Vietnamese people are most proud of.
