Investigation tour of plywood and American cabinet factories in Vietnam

Investigation tour of plywood and American cabinet factories in Vietnam

It seems that the Sino US trade war cannot be ended in a short period of time. Finally, we have to consider transferring our products to Southeast Asian countries. Therefore, since 2017, we have contacted several plywood and American style cabinet factories in South Vietnam and North Vietnam for a short visit. In general, every inspection trip has greatly changed my bad impression of Vietnam when I went to Nha Trang, and I am more and more optimistic about the development prospect of Vietnam

The plywood and American cabinet factories in South Vietnam are located in Pingyang, Ho Chi Minh, where many Taiwanese and Singaporean enterprises are concentrated. The two factories contacted by friends are all Taiwanese enterprises. It’s obvious that the Taiwanese enterprises established more than 10 years ago are more traditional and stubborn in the management and some concepts of plywood and American style cabinet factories. I don’t know whether these plywood and American style cabinet factories can continue to develop after Chinese enterprises enter Vietnam in a large scale. The newly established enterprises still keep pace with the times in terms of ideology and concept, and they also know their own advantages and challenges. They are only small in scale and are more suitable for intensive cultivation of small-scale products.

Let’s talk about Ho Chi Minh. What impresses me most is traffic. Ho Chi Minh’s roads are narrow, and there is almost no big way from downtown to the airport or industrial area. Even in the city center, there are few wider ones. Motorcycles and cars are driven forward with great efforts. No one will let them go. However, it’s strange that they can’t touch each other. Most of the time, they feel that they are only a centimeter away from each other, but they are safe. I always thought that Chinese cars are hard to drive. I didn’t know that driving in China is only a piece of cake until Ho Chi Minh. There are not many shopping malls in Ho Chi Minh, but he didn’t want to go shopping or search well. Living in the first county, it’s very busy at night. Many young people gather in the city center on motorcycles. They sit on the side of the road, eat snacks, chat, play cards and ride home later. It’s very casual and easy. The bars on fan Laowu Street are very lively. There are one bar on both sides of the street with a length of about one kilometer. The road is also full of people. There are tourists and local people. The bar consumption is still much lower than that in Shanghai, so it is said that Ho Chi Minh’s economy mainly depends on tourism. When it comes to tourism, I think of the scene in the hotel. The first morning I went to breakfast and asked the waiter if he had mango juice. The waiter said no. then he asked me if I wanted mango. I said yes. In fact, there was no mango in the fruit in the restaurant. The waiter took half of the cut mango. When I went to have breakfast the next day, another waiter came up and called my name and asked if I wanted mango. These small details should be said to be a microcosm of Ho Chi Minh’s service industry.

The only regret in Ho Chi Minh is that I didn’t go to the pink church. On the first day, I went to the red church and the central post office and went straight to the plywood and American cabinet factory. On the second day, I went to the pink church and was told that I would have church on Sunday, so I could only watch outside and could not enter. It’s a pity that I wanted to go in and take pictures of the church’s interior. I have to stop. Go to the market and buy coffee and cashew nuts and dried mango.

After buying the gift, I went straight to the airport to Hanoi.

When I went to Hanoi, I knew that my friend said that Hanoi was very poor and could only eat boiled vegetables. From the airport to the city are all elevated and high-speed, high-rise buildings flashing neon, give me the feeling of Guangzhou. After dinner, I left my luggage and went to huanjianhu District, the bustling central area, which was shocked by the rich cultural life of Hanoi people after dinner. In the pedestrian street, many local people sing, dance, jump rope and kick shuttlecock. There are also some acrobatics. The children walk around on the scooter and suddenly feel that this is a generation of people who are not bound by smart phones. It’s very rare. There are also many businesses on the street. There are many restaurants, spas, luxury brand stores, high-rise buildings in the new area, full of life atmosphere in the central area, as well as many coffee and dessert stores. They feel like the city of Guangzhou. Later, I went to the local shopping malls and supermarkets. I felt that the price was very close to the domestic price.

I have to say that the plywood and American cabinet factories near Hanoi are also the major factors that make a big difference to me this time. The place we went to is called Beining. Beining is like Dongguan to Guangzhou to Hanoi. Some large enterprises in Japan and South Korea, such as Samsung, Canon and Foxconn, have built factories in or near Beining as early as a few years ago, which has also led to the establishment and maturity of a series of supporting plywood and American cabinet factories. From raw materials to final packaging materials, they can be purchased locally. In addition, the border trade in northern Vietnam also gives plywood and American cabinet factories more cost advantages. The two plywood and American cabinet factories visited this time are invested by Chinese enterprises in Vietnam. Their production scale and efficiency are not inferior to those of plywood and American cabinet factories in China. Vietnamese workers here are also very hardworking and willing to earn more overtime. Moreover, Chinese enterprises invested heavily in automatic production in the early stage, which is very prescient, because Vietnam, with a population of only tens of millions, has begun to show signs of labor shortage. These situations are far from what I heard before I came to Vietnam. I can’t understand the development momentum here without looking at them in person.

Finally, I will mention the paper rice roll of Hanoi Hotel. Before, I only ate the paper rice roll in the domestic Vietnamese restaurant. I knew that it was Vietnamese characteristics. I came here to eat the paper rice roll made on site, and then I knew that the paper rice roll was really delicious. Hope to have more opportunities to eat in the future!
