Doosan Infracore recently took part in the Vietnam International Machinery Fair (VIMAF) held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam from November 11-14.
The VIMAF 2019 is the second annual international machinery fair co-sponsored by the Korea Machinery Industry Association and COEX and organized by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, Korea.
Under the theme of 'The power to move Vietnam,' Doosan Infracore introduced the following key construction equipment engine products and parts at the largest booth (225㎡) of any participating company: (1) six output-enhanced electronic engines including the DX12 (for vehicles) and the DX22 (for power generators); (2) 5-ton and 14-ton wheel excavators, the company’s flagship construction equipment in the Vietnamese market; and (3) innovative core parts including new tires and long life engine oil.
Doosan Infracore currently ranks second in the Vietnamese excavator market with a share of 23.5% (as of October 2019). The company also entered the Vietnamese bus engine market in 2017 with CNG (compressed natural gas) engines, and has since made remarkable achievements in securing additional customers and partner companies in the area by signing contracts to supply major Vietnamese commercial vehicle manufacturers including SAMCO and TRACOMECO with bare chassis and engines for their buses. Last July, Doosan Infracore opened the doors of its engine training center in Vietnam to provide its local customers with engine-related technical training as well as the latest technical information in the field.
An official from Doosan Infracore said, “Vietnam is the third-largest export market for Korea’s machinery industry,” adding, “We will build strong cooperative relations with local partners in Vietnam, with the ultimate goal of expanding our presence in other emerging markets in Southeast Asia as well.”
