Huge efforts have been under way at Pepperl+Fuchs in Vietnam since November 2019, all aimed at investing in the company’s future and growth with a further state-of-the-art new building. The new building has now been officially inaugurated at an impressive ceremony.

Nothing was left to chance when planning the new company building at Pepperl+Fuchs in Vietnam, not even the date of the celebration to mark its opening. There, March 10 is considered the perfect choice according to the lunar calendar if an important project is to be successful. Therefore, about 100 guests, including employees, customers, and business partners, were invited to attend an official inauguration ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City at 10 a.m. on that day to mark the completion of a building like no other in the area in a style befitting the occasion.

Setting new standards

Following the ceremony, selected guests were invited to tour the 20,000-square-meter new building, which is truly up to the minute in terms of technology and more. The facility is also an impressive signal by the company that it is investing in the future and in Vietnam as a place to do business. The expansion also focused on employee wellbeing, including new layout concepts for the offices, an upgraded cafeteria, and a fitness and games area, making the new building a high-profile statement by one of the region’s top employers.

Han-Than Hong, Managing Director of the Pepperl+Fuchs branch in Ho Chi Minh City, was also delighted at the overwhelmingly positive feedback from guests and employees. “When it comes to recruiting new people and earning their loyalty to the company, we are already seeing our efforts bear fruit. And our guests from the business and political sectors also agreed that we are setting new standards with this building and are one of Vietnam’s top employers.” A plaque commemorating this important day was unveiled as the final highlight of the opening ceremony. The festivities then concluded with a buffet and traditional folk music.
