Trelleborg Opens Manufacturing Plant in Vietnam

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions starts production at its first ever manufacturing facility in Vietnam, an advanced 8,000 square meter facility strategically located in Long Thanh.

It produces high-quality O-Rings and custom-designed engineered molded components in a wide range of elastomer materials using the latest compression and injection molding technology and plate heat exchanger gaskets. 

Gordon Micallef, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Operations Business Unit President, says: “The new Long Thanh facility is a key part of our strategy to increase our manufacturing footprint in Asia and expand our capabilities and product offerings in the region. The new facility focuses on servicing automotive and industrial markets for both the fast-growing market in Vietnam and the wider Asian region, as well as Europe and North America. It enhances our support to customers in the region who are increasingly seeking local suppliers to increase supply chain security and sustainability.”

Long Thanh is Trelleborg Sealing Solutions’ first manufacturing capacity in Vietnam, joining the existing Customer Solution Center (CSC) which supports local requirements from offices in Ho Chi Minh city. Applying Trelleborg’s “local presence, global reach” principles, the enhanced presence in Vietnam means customers will increasingly benefit from the strength and capabilities of a global leader based nearby.
