Vietnam National Tobacco Corporation (VINATABA) was found in 1985. Based on the core value system: Be ready – Be solidary – Be cost-effective and committing to the high standards corporation governance that targets to be a strong economic organization, VINATABA has become a leading corporation in Vietnam tobacco industry and had more than 50% market share in terms of domestic consumption and export volume. It has 10 wholly-owned subsidiary companies and 4 holding subsidiary companies.
As a leading tobacco machinery supplier, KSEC has long history of cooperation with VINATABA. Back to 1993, KSEC designed and supplied a complete new 3000kg/h primary processing line to Thang Long cigarette factory of VINATABA, which was the first fully automated production line in Vietnam tobacco industry. The processing line is still running very well for near 30 years. In 2017, VINATABA decided to invest a new 5000kg/h primary processing line in response to the quick market share growing. After comparing the technical and commercial offers between KSEC and western suppliers, VINATABA awarded the contract to KSEC again. The primary processing line consists of two separated lamina and stem processing subline with good material adaptability and process flexibility. The primary was designed in latest technology with decades of industry know-how of KSEC. Within less than 10 months, the primary was handover to user for normal production. The primary line now becomes the major production base of VINATAB for export cigarette.
