Sanofi Group plans third factory in Vietnam

Sanofi Group, the French pharmaceutical giant, has announced plans to build a third factory at the Hi-Tech Park in Ho Chi Minh City, at a cost of US$75 million, said Chris Viehbacher, managing director of the company in Vietnam.

The plant is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2015 with an initial output capacity of 90 million units per year and later to increase to 150 million units a year, for the production of high-quality pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare products. The products will be launched in the market by 2016.

The new state-of-the-art plant will enhance Sanofi’s capacity in Vietnam to be able to meet increasing future demands, as well as serve as an export platform for other ASEAN countries.
