Thanks to the purchase of Bach Ma factory this month, Viglacera has increased its total capacity to 43 million square metres per year, putting it among the top 20 largest ceramic tile companies in the world.

With this new factory, Viglacera now owns eight factories nationwide and has become the largest construction materials company in Viet Nam.

Bach Ma factory is located in My Xuan A Industrial Zone of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province. The factory was officially handed over to Viglacera on December 6 and had its name changed to Viglacera My Duc 2 shortly after the handover ceremony.

The purchase was part of the company’s strategy to improve its capacity, expand its market reach and develop towards the high-end segment.

Viglacera is among the first companies in Asia-Pacific to apply the cutting-edge Italian technology Continua+ of Sacmi to its production line of large porcelain panels at the Viglacera My Duc 2 factory. The production of these panels is expected to kick off in the first half of 2022.

Viglacera said it would continue to invest in advanced technologies and equipment to produce high-class ceramic products that meet the high standards of high-end markets. The factory would create jobs for local people and make substantial contributions to the province’s growth and the development of relevant supply chains.

Covering an area of 280,000 square metres, Viglacera My Duc 2 factory has a production capacity of 10 million square metres per year. It was granted the SIRIM certificate by Standard & Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM) for its efforts in environmental protection. — VNS
