The ESMO VINA factory was established to improve the production capacity of the ESMO Corporation, in order to meet the demands of new orders, as well as enhancing the competitiveness through the systematic production of components and spare parts for hybrid vehicles and electric cars.

In the context of international commitments on reducing emissions are being promoted to combat climate change and the greenhouse effect, reducing emissions from vehicles is also one of the important tasks for Automobile manufacturing enterprises. Electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles are becoming more and more popular, leading to the development of the corresponding spare parts industry that ESMO is one of the pioneers.
Thanks to the strength of experience in production as well as the high-level engineers from both domestic and foreign countries, ESMO Corporation is expected to contribute to promoting economic growth for Ninh Binh in particular and Vietnam in general, at the same time creating more jobs for local people; it not only helps to train human resources but also strengthens local competitiveness compared to other regions of the world.
Currently, the ESMO Corporation is operating two manufacturing plants in Qingdao (China), which are GoHyeon and RaeSeo factories. In order to realize the goal of expanding the business scope of the group into Southeast Asia, besides building a third factory in Vietnam, ESMO has established Global Land Vina Co., Ltd. ESMO is also planning to increase the volume of its supply to the fast-growing and highly-concentrated automobile manufacturers in South East Asia.
