POSCO Group is a global steel company in South Korea, ranked first in the annual competitiveness evaluation by the World Steel Association for 11 consecutive years.

As a group that handles comprehensive materials, POSCO Group produces various industrial materials, including steel.

In 1968, POSCO was founded under the management philosophy of patriotism to help the economic development of South Korea, which was devastated after the war.

Currently, POSCO is operated under the policy of actively participating in social development based on the management philosophy of "Corporate Citizenship".

POSCO Group opened a representative office in Hà Nội, Việt Nam, in 1991, just before the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries, and started investing in Việt Nam first among Korean steel companies.

VSC-POSCO Steel (Hải Phòng), POSVINA (Hồ Chí Minh), Diamond Plaza (Hồ Chí Minh), and VINA Pipe have been established and supplied steel materials needed by Việt Nam industry since 1994.

Since 2006, large-scale investments have been made to establish POSCO Vietnam (1.2 million tonnes of cold rolled steel), PY VINA (500,000 tonnes of section steel), and POSCO VST (250,000 tonnes of Stainless Steel).

We briefly introduce each corporation that has entered Việt Nam and is active as follows.

POSCO Vietnam, Southeast Asia's largest cold-rolled mill with an annual capacity of 1.2 million tonnes, opened in 2006 at the Phú Mỹ IZ in Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu.

As a result, PY VINA is the only big-size structural maker in Việt Nam producing high-grade Section steel with various standards (JIS, KS, ACRS, TCVN, BS, EURONORM, AS/NZS, SIRIM, SNI, etc.)
