Vietnamese packaging firm installs Danish corona treatment tech

Ho Chi Minh City-based Vina Aus Labels, a converter of labels and flexible packaging with an annual turnover of US$55 million, recently invested in Vetaphone’s corona treatment technology on an Indian manufactured Windsor five-layer blown extrusion line.

Commenting on the choice of a of a Vetaphone treater, which is a VE2B-B (DS) 2320 model with a 2.2 m web width and 8kW power capability, Pham Van Thanh Quang, Supply Chain Deputy Manager, added: “The decision was based on several factors: our longstanding relationship with Song Song, Vetaphone’s agent in Vietnam, which has always given us great support, and the ease of cleaning and maintenance of the treater unit with its removable electrode cassette. We also really value the R&D resource offered by Vetaphone’s test lab in Denmark.”

Vina Aus Labels is a manufacturer of labels and flexible packaging in Vietnam. With a 20-year history in the industry, the company has established itself as a reliable and innovative supplier of label and flexible packaging solutions for a wide range of industries including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, household, and cosmetics.

Founded by Lam Chi Thien, who has more than 40 years of experience in managing and manufacturing flexible packaging, the company has two divisions. The North division is headed by CEO Gareth Lewis who has 40 years’ experience working for multi-national corporations worldwide, and 20 years manufacturing labels and flexible packaging in Vietnam. The South division is led by CEO Phillip Lam.

The company has three plants in Vietnam: at Hanoi, where it prints and laminates, Dong Nai, where it has converting, printing capability and laminates, and Ho Chi Minh City where it produces blown film including PVC shrink film, PE shrink film and LLDPE for lamination.

All printing throughout the group is by rotogravure, which is typical of 90% of package printing in the Southeast Asia region, largely as a factor of the volumes involved and the low cost of a relatively simple print process. An upcoming investment will see a fourth factory completed in 2024 to produce stretch and cling film.

Vina Aus Labels is currently the largest supplier of labels to the Vietnam brewery sector, but also sends 30% of its output to major brand owners including Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Carlsberg in Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Myanmar, as well as the Philippines. The company has also just begun to explore the Indian market, which it believes has tremendous potential for growth.

According to Quang, the company has grown rapidly over the years, and now has more than 1,000 employees. The company also boasts an annual capacity of 25 billion labels, 13 billion shrink and wraparound labels, 12 billion foil or metallised labels, 4,500 tonnes of blown PVC film and 4,800 tonnes of blown PE, from the three sites.

Looking ahead, Quang said that plans are afoot for two Nordmeccanica lamination lines, each of which will need corona treaters.

Commenting for Vetaphone, Sales Manager for Asia-Pacific, Holger Selenka said: “I am looking forward to building on the excellent working partnerships we have with both Song Song and Vina Australia Packaging Labels in Vietnam.”
