WACKER Opens Second Sales Office in Vietnam and Cooperates with COSIC to Establish a Showroom for Construction Chemicals

WACKER Opens Second Sales Office in Vietnam and Cooperates with COSIC to Establish a Showroom for Construction Chemicals

WACKER, the Munich-based chemical company, is strengthening its presence in Vietnam by opening a second sales office, but this time in the north of the country. The new office in Hanoi will cater to the needs of customers and partners in the fast-growing northern region. Focusing on WACKER’s silicone and polymer products, the new office will support customers not only in construction, decorative coatings, adhesives, and electronics, but also textiles, chemicals and the rubber industry. Additionally, WACKER is opening a dry-mix mortar showroom in Ho Chi Minh City in cooperation with COSIC (the Ho Chi Minh City Construction Service and Information Center). The new showroom – or “Application House” – will demonstrate a range of construction applications that support the development and professional application of modern construction solutions in Vietnam. 

The decision to open a sales office in Hanoi reflects the rapid growth of Vietnam’s economy in the north, where the construction sector is expanding especially strongly.

With the government boosting the economy in the north, we want to provide our customers and partners there with tailor-made solutions that perfectly match their requirements,” explained Patrick de Wolf, managing director of WACKER South East Asia. The new office will be headed by Vinh Long Bui, who has been active for WACKER in North Vietnam for several years. 

As the construction industry across Vietnam is growing at such a fast pace, WACKER has additionally decided to open a dry-mix mortars showroom in Ho Chi Minh City, the so-called “Application House.” The new facility will take account of regional raw materials and rising building standards in Vietnam. “The facility will help us not only to transfer our extensive expertise in sustainable building materials, but also to increase awareness of the advantages and market prospects of construction chemicals,” stressed Long Nguyen, technical manager for Construction Polymers at WACKER. Located at the COSIC building in Ho Chi Minh City, the new showroom will offer opportunities for conducting indoor and outdoor application tests on polymer powders, dispersions and construction silicones – with applications ranging from skim coats, tile adhesives and self-leveling flooring compounds to water-proofing membranes, silicone sealants and adhesives. The “Application House” will host training courses for customers, end users and students. Its goal is to introduce and promote high-quality, efficient construction materials and techniques in Vietnam. 

In total, WACKER now has 27 sales offices in Asia, with seven of them located in South East Asia: Bangkok (Thailand), Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Jakarta (Indonesia), Manila (the Philippines), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and Singapore, which also is the company’s regional headquarters.
