Kim Tin Group signed contracts for the two new production lines in Binh Phuoc and Dong Nai provinces.

Headquartered in Ho Chi Minh City, the Kim Tin Group commissioned the MDF plants for its sites in Chon Thanh, Binh Phuoc province and Dau Giay, Dong Nai province. 

Founded in 2000, Kim Tin Group has grown rapidly to become one of Vietnam’s leading welding material manufacturers and is also active in the non-ferrous metals, mining and transportation industries. 

“We are now expanding our MDF production, with a total investment of US$350m,” explained Nguyen Tien Hai, Kim Tin Group’s chairman of the Board. 

“We think big and therefore decided to build two production lines at the same time.”

An essential part of the Dieffenbacher scope of supply will be the company’s new digital platform Evoris. 

“Using Evoris will make Kim Tin Group one of the pioneers of digitalization in the wood-based panels industry,” said Stefan Zipf, head of the Wood Business Unit at Dieffenbacher. 

Kim Tin Group plans to produce the first board on its new MDF line in Chon Thanh in May 2023. Start-up of the plant in Dau Giay will follow in February 2024. 

Although the ink is only just dry on the contracts, the company is already planning further expansion. By 2025, Kim Tin Group intends to build additional plants in central and northern Vietnam.
