The NS BlueScope Vietnam Limited, a flagship joint venture between two steel giants- Australia’s BlueScope Steel Limited and Japan’s Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation, currently operates three plants valued a total $130 million located in Vietnam’s different locations, according to Vo Minh Nhut, the company’s president. 

The company manufactures various kinds of quality coated steel products with about 20 per cent of production output bound for export to demanding markets in the US, Europe, Africa, New Zealand and some Southeast Asian countries. 

BlueScope Limited dropped anchor into Vietnam in 1993 through opening its first factory capitalised at about $5 million in Bien Hoa Industrial Park (IP) in the southern province of Dong Nai. 

VIR reporters Hong Son and Le Toan were lucky to visit NS BlueScope Vietnam’s $105 million plant at Phu My 1 IP in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau recently, which was regarded as the most state-of-the art plant of its kind in ASEAN. 

As designed, each year the plant has the capacity to turn out 150,000 tonnes of metallic coated  and 50,000 tonnes of pre-painted flat steel products carrying world’s renowned trademarks such as Colorbond® and Zincalume®.
