On December 12, 2019, USI’s board of directors approved an investment for a manufacturing facility to be set up in Vietnam and, established the Universal Scientific Industrial Company Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary, for that purpose. With a planned investment of $200 million in Phase I, the project is one of the biggest in Hai Phong, Vietnam in 2020. Covering an area of almost 65,000 square meters, the smart manufacturing facility will be built according to Industry 4.0 standards and be completed in two phases.

USI currently has 10 manufacturing facilities around the world. The Vietnam facility will be USI’s first production base in Southeast Asia, and will play an important role in the company’s “modularisation, diversification and globalisation” strategy to fulfill international customer orders and strengthen supply chain management. The company will also be able to leverage on the country’s labour resource, tax incentive programmes and strategic location to enhance cost competitiveness, consolidate and boost its market position. USI’s investment will also help to promote the development and upgrading of the local high-tech industry, increase employment opportunities and fuel economic growth in Vietnam.

According to Akira Kuei, director of Manufacturing Services Division of USI Vietnam Facility, Phase I of the construction would be completed in the second quarter of 2021 and begin production in the third quarter. The facility will initially focus on manufacturing and assembling chips for wearable electronic devices. The Vietnam facility is expected to create more than 1,700 job opportunities for Hai Phong City and cultivate professional talents in the high-end electronic product manufacturing industry that will help promote Hai Phong’s economy and foster the development of its high-tech segment.
