Mastering technology helps Hà Nội Plastics JSC accelerate in the global value chain
HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội Plastics Joint Stock Company (HPC) aims to constantly create, innovate technology and improve technical capacity, especially in the field of precision mechanics and mould production to further penetrate the global supply chain.
The key to rapid growth of Hà Nội Plastics JSC
“Independence and proactiveness in technology is a big dream of many businesses. And in order to realise that dream, it is necessary to invest in research and development (R&D), facilities and people, especially a team with good expertise and background knowledge. Gathering this team, creating conditions for them to work together is a priority in the field of support industry today,” said Bùi Minh Hải, Chairman of Hà Nội Plastics Joint Stock Company.
When focusing on this field, An Phát Holdings Group has researched and given clear orientations and strategies to carefully build infrastructure, invest in equipment, and apply technologies for the manufacturing of important spare parts for big companies. In particular, the group has invested in the Hà Nội Plastics JSC to bring it into an enterprise capable of designing and manufacturing all kinds of moulds from super-precision to large-sized ones serving the automotive industry. There are few businesses in the country that can produce such moulds.
Instead of having to work with one or more third and fourth parties to design, manufacture and test moulds, which increases production costs and time, the end-to-end manufacturing process within the company has helped improve its quality and reduce costs. With two factories in Hà Nội and Hải Dương with the most modern mould system in the north, the company is now competitive enough to strongly develop this segment.
The company has attached great importance to the development of core human resources. When working with foreign customers, the company completes the basic criteria, then co-ordinates with consultants to come up with products that exactly meet partners' requirements. Every year, HPC holds training courses for key human resources with experts and provides effective solutions in production.
“We believe that improving human resources is an extremely important strategy to create spare parts with high complexity,” he added.
In addition, HPC plays an important role in support industry development programmes organised by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), to expand, connect trade, and share experiences with many businesses, departments and branches in the same field.

The company has actively participated in co-operation programmes to improve production organised by MoIT and foreign direct investment (FDI) enterprises. An Trung Industries Limited and Việt Nam Pattern Manufacture and Precision Mechanical Company Limited (VMC), HPC’s members, are also seen by FDI enterprises as excellent enterprises in the programmes. They have sharply improved their production capacity and quality control.
$82.7 million revenue target set in 2021
Hà Nội Plastics JSC will focus on studying new products, enhancing its strength in manufacturing plastic moulds and industrial products, especially for Japanese customers and FDI companies in 2021. The company plans to maintain and develop current customers in the field of plastic spare parts for automobiles, motorcycles, electronics such as Toyota, Honda, Panasonic, LG, Piaggio, Samsung, Brother and Foxconn. This is also the year its member companies are set to run at full capacity, deeply participating in the value chain of the support industry.
All factories are supported by foreign experts in design and installation following strict standards
Of which, VMC with a capacity of 230 plastic injection moulds a year will meet customers’ diverse needs from cars and motorbikes, printers, computers to electronic devices such as televisions and phones.
An Trung Industries Co Ltd has expanded its electronic product portfolio, targeting FDI companies manufacturing mobile phones. At the end of 2020, the company was also selected by Foxconn as a supplier. This opens more growth opportunities for HPC in 2021.
All factories are designed and installed following customer's standards and requirement
To realise this strategic goal, all factories, infrastructure, human resources, and production equipment are synchronised according to the strict standards of customers, supported by foreign experts directly in design and installation assistance.
With those steps, Hà Nội Plastics JSC sets a revenue goal of VNĐ1.9 trillion in 2021, up 78.5 per cent compared to 2020 and after-tax profit of VNĐ150 billion as well as further penetrating the global value chain./.
