The Bühler Group opened a factory in the Long An province in Vietnam, addressing increased demand for high-quality rice processing solutions in the region. The new factory will further expands Bühler’s global service and production network, delivering high-quality solutions to customers locally. This multimillion-dollar investment includes a complete sales and service office, engineering and R&D units, as well as a production workshop. The factory can deliver entire rice milling solutions and is expected to produce several hundred machines to Vietnam and neighboring countries annually. The opening also coincides with the official launch of the Bühler W sorter in Vietnam. This high-precision rice sorter reliably removes defects and foreign material from a range of rice varieties, enabling Vietnamese processors to compete on a global scale with high-quality rice.
Lo`u`ng Trung Hiê´u, General Manager of Bühler Vietnam, says: “Considering Vietnam’s position as one of the leading global rice producers, we think Bühler’s top-quality equipment will contribute to the further economic development of the region. The factory in Long An will act as the engineering center for complete solutions for rice, manufacturing accessories, auxiliary equipment, and technology integration for the entire grains and food offering of the Bühler Group in Southeast Asia.”
Rustom Mistry, Chairman and Managing Director of Bühler Vietnam, adds: “The Bühler Group has had a presence in Vietnam since we opened our first office in 1960. Now, with this factory, we have the opportunity to show our customers our processing equipment in operation.”
