Vietnam is not only one of the most dynamic economy of the globe but also a fast rising shipbuilding nation!
In the worldwide trend of transferring from developed to developing countries, the Vietnamese shipbuilding industry has taken advantages from government supporting policies and in few years became one of the world leader nations in terms of new building tonnage.
In this context the overall labor skills in the marine industry has grown quickly not only for production competence but also in terms of technical knowledge and design expertise. Today the most important strong point of Vietnamese shipbuilding industry is exactly this: high level of competence associated to a still competitive cost of man power. And if correctly managed and addressed these good competences can give relevant results in terms of quality and competitiveness.
It’s in this background that VIMATEC Engineering has been created. Our intention is address the rising level of Vietnamese technical skills and knowledge in the way to have high level of productivity and quality comparable to foreigners standards. Today this is really possible and our secret is merge together an European style management to the dynamic and skillful young generation of Vietnamese marine engineers!
