Amid the 4th wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, a representative of HSG said it had actively organised a system of factories and stores nationwide to follow strict regulations on pandemic prevention, carrying out RT-PCR tests for workers once a week, ensuring the company's business and production are not interrupted.
The representative also said that HSG's export volume was growing strongly in both traditional markets and newly exploited markets, especially in markets with high demand for galvanised steel such as North America, South America and Europe.
HSG had signed export contracts with customers until the end of November 2021, with an average export volume of over 120,000 tonnes per month. The system of 536 branches, retail stores across regions and 10 factories located near international ports had ensured the production and supply of goods in all conditions.
Therefore, although the domestic market was affected by the pandemic, HSG still maintained a stable sales volume, bringing in revenue of about VND4 trillion per month.
