TUV SUD PSB Vietnam, a subsidiary of Germany’s TUV SUD Group, will cooperate with Vietnam in the management of wood processing factories.
To this effect, a cooperation agreement was signed between the company and the Ho Chi Minh City Handicraft & Wood Industry Association (HAWA) on April 22.
As the world’s leading technical solution provider in product testing, certification and qualification, TUV SUD PSB Vietnam will provide technical training for factory managers involved, said the company’s General Director Sathish Kumar Somuraj.
According to HAWA Chairman Nguyen Chien Thang, 300 members of the association in particular and Vietnamese wood businesses in general are small and medium-sized with weak competitiveness.
He expressed his hope that the German company will help Vietnamese wood producers better integrate into the world market and increase exports, particularly to Europe and the US.
