HÀ NỘI — The Medical Plastic Joint Stock Company (Mediplast) on Thursday launched the first phase of a medical plastic factory in the northern province of Bắc Ninh’s Đại Đồng Industrial Park.
The move comes after Mediplast’s merger with Vietnam Medical Equipment Corporation (Vinamed) in May this year.
The factory was built in November 2016, focusing on producing one-time injection needles, single-use K1 syringes, various kinds of insulin syringes, butterfly needles and infusion sets.
General Director of Mediplast Hoàng Minh Dũng said the factory’s products serve the domestic healthcare sector and foreign countries and territories including Ukraine, Japan, Nigeria, Laos and Taiwan (China).
With an area of 13,000sq.m and more than 200 workers, the factory is expected to help Mediplast enhance its production capacity, develop new products, meet demand for healthcare tools in Việt Nam and become a supplier for international organisations. — VNS
