HA NOI (VNS)– Authorities in Ha Noi on Tuesday found a local company illegally producing fake additives to make concrete piles to support buildings.
At Ha Noi Trade and Technology Application Limited Company, the city's market watch confiscated 15.3 tonnes of fake additives packed in 530 packages - plus details about the company's production and business.
The company's director, Nguyen Van Tat, 40, reportedly admitted to illegally importing a small sum of genuine products from India, then starting production of the fakes.
Piles must be able to bear thousands of tonnes in unstable or difficult soil conditions. Additives used in their manufacture therefore must be of high quality.
Authorities are tracking down clients who bought the phony products. - VNS
