Share the info

Vietnam Artpresto factory, 100% Japanese capital, specializing in packaging production with a total investment of 5 million USD was started in Chau Son Industrial Zone, Ha Nam province right in the first week after the Lunar New Year holiday.

This event once again shows that packaging is still the field that attracting capital, especially when the major manufacturing industries, from manufacturing and agriculture, are on the rise, leading to the need to use bags.

The Artpresto Vietnam packaging factory, invested by Artpresto Vietnam Company (belonging to Bandai Namco Group), with the goal of producing high quality packaging products.

Once completed, Artpresto Vietnam factory will operate with a capacity of nearly 40 million products/year.

Artpresto Company was established in 1983, in charge of packaging design, product design, and trading printing products of Bandai Namco Group. Artpresto’s total revenue in 2018 is about 8 billion yen.

According to general director of Artpresto Vietnam Company, when operating, the factory in Vietnam will contribute to improving the supply chain of high-quality packaging products for the Japanese and Vietnamese markets.

Not to mention customers, the demand of Bandai Namco Holdings – the parent company of Artpresto is very large, so the factory in Vietnam will be a significant packaging supply channel for the Group. And yet, in the calculation of this group, Artpresto Vietnam will be the first development of Bandai Namco to the Vietnamese market in particular, and the foundation of development in the Southeast Asian market in general.

This can be understood, when doing good business in Vietnam, capital will be poured to expand, increase production and catch up business opportunities.

With the current growth rate of 10-15% per year, the Vietnamese packaging and processing industry is considered to be quite attractive to suppliers of machinery and equipment operating in the industry, as well as the trend of foreign enterprises expanding investment and acquiring businesses operating in this field.

Packaging is a product rich in types and designs, so packaging materials are also rich and diverse. Packaging materials in Vietnam are mainly plastic, paper, carton, metal and glass. It is estimated that the whole industry will grow by 25% in 2019.

According to the forecast, economic sectors mainly from food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics will grow 2-digit in the period from now to 2025, so packaging has a good opportunity to develop, including packaging industrial and agricultural packaging.
