Saigon 3 Jean JSC, a member of Saigon 3 Group, put into operation a garment factory cluster covering 50,000 square meters on May 24 at Nhon Trach Industrial Zone in the southern province of Dong Nai.
The cluster was built at a cost of VND900 billion in the first phase, including a wash factory, a garment plant and a completion center.
Saigon 3 Jean was established in 2018, with charter capital of VND300 billion. Work on the construction of the company’s plant cluster started in July 2018. The wash facility was completed in November 2018 and put into operation in December 2018. The wash factory is expected to turn out 17 million units per year in the first phase and 35 million per year in the second phase.
The construction of the factory cluster was finished in early 2019. On March 15, its two facilities, including a garment plant and a center, were put into service.
The firm, whose main products are Jean and Khaki, in combination with other factories operated by Saigon 3 Group, will contribute to garment production chains in the country and are able to meet the high-quality fashion demands of Japanese, European and U.S. customers.
Nguyen Khanh Linh, vice chairman of Saigon 3 Group’s board, said that the firm receives very large orders from well-known fashion brands throughout the world each year, with 50% of the volume exported to Japan, and the remaining half shipped to European and American markets.
The Nhon Trach garment facility was built and operated in line with LEED Certification of the U.S. Green Building Council, featuring a wastewater treatment system with a capacity of 2,500 cubic meters per night.
Some 500 employees will work at the wash factory, while the garment facility, with 15 production lines, will be in need of 800 laborers to manufacture eight million garments per year. Meanwhile, its completion center will employ 600 workers to fulfill the target of 13 million products per year.
