VIETNAM - On 16th December, Air Liquide Vietnam held its 20th Anniversary celebration at the Marriott Hotel, Hanoi.
The last 20 years have seen Air Liquide Vietnam grow from strength to strength, beginning in 1996 when a Joint Venture was formed between Air Liquide, BOC and Sumitomo registered under the name of North Vietnam Industrial Gas. The first Air Separation Unit was constructed a year later in Que Vo, Bac Ninh province. 2007 bore witness to a flurry of activity, with Air Liquide Vietnam becoming a fully-owned subsidiary of the Air Liquide Group and in the following year 2 more ASUs were constructed in Phu My Industrial Park and Saigon High Tech Park (SHTP). 2015 marked another year of growth with the construction of an ASU at Yen Phong, Bac Ninh province.
The 20th anniversary event was graced by the presence of Ms Virginie Cavalli, Chief Executive Officer of Southeast Asia, and Mr Li Wei Ching, former Managing Director of Air Liquide Vietnam.
The event included exciting outdoor activities, long service and safety award presentation, speeches from the distinguished guests, lucky draws and performances by employees from the Hanoi office, Bac Ninh and SHTP plant.
