BÌNH DƯƠNG — Chương Dương Beverage Joint Stock Company (CDBECO) on Wednesday started construction on Grade A facilities, which comprised a beverage packaging factory and a built-to-order warehouse in Mỹ Phước 3 Industrial Park in the southern province of Bình Dương.
Covering an area of 43,000sq.m, the project has a total estimated investment of more than VNĐ320 billion (US$14 million). This will form part of the CDBECO's long-term strategy to further expand its distribution network and route-to-market while creating greater value for shareholders.
The symbolic groundbreaking ceremony also celebrates the first collaboration and formal partnership between CDBECO and MLP, a real estate JV between SABECO and Frasers Property Vietnam. Together with the main contractor COFICO E&C, CDBECO aims to create an innovative and sustainable industrial property that will meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Certification standards with high-quality specifications to suit production needs and those of world class clients.
The project development is targeted to be completed by August 2022. The built-to-order warehouse will be leased out to strategic clients.
Addressing the ceremony, Chairman of CDBECO, Bennett Neo said: “This project will further expand our distribution network, route-to-market, and create new revenue streams for CDBECO through optimising our existing assets. This will increase our overall shareholder value, along with other new initiatives from our core business in 2022.”
