Magma Ceramics and Catalysts have issued a press release announcing completion of their first projects in their Magma Vietnam branch.
The release states: “In the past year, Magma Vietnam have completed their first container and float glass projects. This concludes a successful transfer of skills and knowledge from our UK operations in order to offer our customers the same quality products at a more competitive price.”
Magma Vietnam’s General Manger David Collinge said, “We are delighted at the completion of these projects and are looking forward to supplying high quality container and float glass refractories back into Europe and North America. Looking forwards, we are excited about the future growth prospects in the South-East Asian region.”
The 6,000 square metre Magma Vietnam facility is located between Hanoi and North Vietnam’s main international sea port, Haiphong. The facility is intended to strengthen the company’s capabilities in the manufacture of refractory ceramic products used in the glass, alloy and steel industries. It will also act as a platform for growth in the South East Asia market, and is strategically located to take advantage of Vietnam’s burgeoning petrochemical industry.
According to the company, Magma Vietnam is ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 accredited, as are all of the company’s other branches.
“Establishing these standards is a core element to all of Magma’s sites. These standards, in combination with real time process data capture systems are allowing Magma to improve on a weekly basis.”
