Viettien-Dong A JSC has announced plans to build a thread plant and industrial washing complex in the Vinatex-Tan Tao industrial zone, Dong Nai province early next year, costing US$3m.

The Vietnamese plants will produce 10m reels of garment threads per year and a washing service mainly for production of VTEC and local garment companies, an official of Viettien-Dong A said. 

Furthermore, the company is recruiting employees who will be sent to American & Efird Inc in India for training in thread production and washing production.

In mid-July this year, Viettien-Dong A kicked off its joint venture with Hong Kong-based Tung Shing, constructing a $2m plant producing and assembling industrial sewing machines in the Vinatex-Tan Tao industrial zone.

Viettien-Dong A is a subsidiary company of Vietnam's leading textile and garment corporation Viet Tien garment export and import Corporation (VTEC).
