On March 18, 2018, Liao Changrong, general manager of CLIMAVENETA Chat Union Group, announced the plan to build a factory in Vietnam and the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the HVACR Vietnam 2018. On June 1st, Wolong Electric's first overseas factory was successfully put into operation in Vietnam's Haiphong Shenyue Industrial Park, which will become the headquarters of Southeast Asia. Daikin Air Conditioning Vietnam Company (located in Ho Chi Minh City, Socialist Republic of Vietnam)'s factory was completed in June in the suburbs of Hanoi, Vietnam, and officially put into production. In 2018, South Korea's LG, Ningbo Jintian and other refrigeration companies will be put into production in Vietnam, which will further establish Vietnam's status as a new global air-conditioning producer.
Since installing its first CO2 cascade refrigeration system in a hypermarket in Singapore in 2012, Epta has successfully installed another two CO2 cascade systems in the country. Now it is ramping up local CO2 technician training and expanding its presence in the Southeast Asia region.
