Posted: Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Kirby Vietnam, set up five years ago, holds a sustainable leadership position in the market for pre-engineered steel buildings in Vietnam and Southeast Asia.

The facility has an annual capacity of 50,000 tonnes.
Apart from meeting the demand in Vietnam, Kirby Vietnam also exports its products to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia and South Africa.
