Vietnam-headquartered Vison is entering the nonwovens market with the installation of new lines in the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh regions.
Vison is one of many new companies in Vietnam ushered in by the wave of private investment since the turn of this century. Formed in 2005 by local entrepreneur Trinh Thanh Vinh, the company currently spins 100% cotton yarns for both its domestic market and export at its 180,000-spindle plant in Hanoi.
Now the company is installing a Chinese needlepunched geotextile line near Ho Chi Minh to serve the new infrastructure projects planned for the region, with startup scheduled for July 2010.
Vison is also extending its cotton-spinning plant in Hanoi to install a polypropylene spunbond and calendar line for the production of articles such as bags and other industrial and consumer goods in addition to geotextiles. This line is also supplied from China.
