In the context of economic volatility in the country and the world, businesses must be creative and resolute to withstand the changing business environment. With its sound business philosophies and core business competencies, Ha Giang Mineral and Mechanics Joint Stock Company has emerged as a leading light on the Ha Giang province’s business community and an important contributor to the province’s industrialisation and modernisation.
Set up nearly 20 years ago, the company was formerly called Ha Giang Mechanical Enterprise administered by the Provincial People's Committee. A-H-branded antimony metals which meet Type 1 and Type 2 world standards are the main products of the company which are mostly exported to Japan and European countries. After more than 10 years on the market, its products have won a lot of quality awards and won the absolute trust of domestic and international customers. When it attended the International Trade Expo, it earned the Gold Medal for Antimony Metal Products, the Vietnam Gold Quality Award and many other prestigious awards.
The company always attaches much importance to environmental protection and fulfils its duties to the State. In 2013, the company made revenues of VND182.294 billion, equal to 108.5 percent of the full-year plan and paid over VND40 billion to the State Budget. The company strictly adheres to regulations on environmental protection. Every two years, the company performs environmental monitoring and analysis. It also works with local authorities and residents to minimise adverse impacts of mining activities on the surroundings. It regularly raises the self-awareness and responsibility of its employees in environmental protection. It funds tree planting along Provincial Road 176 to protect the environment, ensure traffic safety and safeguard the landscape surrounding its ore sites. The company also builds water reservoirs to support livestock husbandry and fishery on the one hand and regulate the climate in the region on the other.
In addition to environmental protection, the company is always very active in social welfare and charitable activities. In 2013, the company donated VND4.5 billion to social activities like funding the construction of Coc Cai Culture House in Yen Minh district and charitable kitchen in Thang Mo commune.
In the coming time, the company will focus on pursuing stability, sustainability and comprehensive development and strive to maintain its position as a leading antimony metal producer in Vietnam. It will improve corporate governance and attract talents to reap more success in the process of international economic integration, upgrade mining and metal-refining technology and equipment to increase productivity, reduce costs and raise output; tighten ISO standard quality management, and improve project investment efficiency to obtain highest benefits for shareholders and employees as well as contribute most to the State coffers.
In addition, the company regards antimony as a core product, lead and zinc ores as near-term products, and other business fields as counterbalance to core fields, particularly during the latest economic crisis. HGM always improves product quality, renovates technologies to lower costs, protect the environment and accumulate resources for development reinvestment. With its well-built internal resources and visionary leadership, Ha Giang Mineral and Mechanics Joint Stock Company is deserved to be a leading light in the process of industrialisation and modernisation of Ha Giang province.
