In July 2007, Formosa Tools, a leading garden tool manufacturer with its headquarters located in Changhwa, Taiwan, completed the construction of a brand new production facility in Taiwanese-managed Thai-Binh industrial park in Thai-Binh, Vietnam, which is located about 110 kilometers southeast of downtown Hanoi

It has been our strategy to remain a low-cost operator and provider, and we have been establishing operation and production facilities with that in mind. Our sales volume has doubled in the last five years, and we cannot continue the trend of growth without major expansion of production and distribution facilities.

Formosa Tools has owned a factory in northern Fujian, China since 1996, and the rising cost in China has become a great challenge to all manufacturers. Therefore the company’s management chose Thai-Binh, Vietnam, over other sites in China and Vietnam for its next production facility in early 2006. 

Our state of the art production and distribution facility in North Vietnam is  up and running, and our goal is to boost our production capacity by 200% in three years, while maintaining our quality and cost advantage.  

Lot size for the new facilities is approximately 54,000 m2 (581,000 sq.ft), and total building size is approximately 32,000 m2 (366,000 sq.ft). 

It features two main plants, two supporting plants, two 3-story buildings for administration, management, and other utilities buildings. No dormitories not required as local workers are not allowed to reside in the industrial park.

With the completion of production plants in Vietnam, Formosa Tool plants in Taiwan will be responsible for manufacturing of high-end products, R&D, distribution and consolidation of products from its various plants; and production in China will be transferred gradually to Vietnam to keep the cost down. We will also open a new sales office in Hanoi for customer visits in the future.

As our profits are driven by sales volume, our overall business strategy is to offer our customers Taiwanese-made quality tools at Chinese made pricing, with U.S. or Europe-made service. Vietnam provides us a substantial labor cost savings from what we pay in China; and the real estate and construction cost is less than China. The Vietnamese government offers attractive tax incentives, which means we literately pay no taxes for 14 years. We would be able to pass on these savings to our customers making us more competitive than ever.

In addition to competitive pricing and superior quality, our customers expect exceptional service as well. To serve our customers more efficiently, we will consolidate goods we manufacture in Taiwan, China, and Vietnam; and offer our customer one FOB ship point: Tai-chung, Taiwan. Our customer then can issue ONE PO, for ONE ship point, and receive ONE invoice for ONE shipment; and foremost, deal with ONE supplier.
