Celebrate the success of “Vietnam Woodworking Enhancement” project
On 17 Dec. 2015, Häfele Vietnam organized a closing ceremony for the project “Vietnam Woodworking Enhancement” in Ho Chi Minh City in the presence of representatives from German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Ho Chi Minh Handicraft and Woodworking Association (HAWA) to appreciate all the progress and achievements of the partnership over the 3 years from 2012 to 2015.
This project is carried out via the private public partnership between Häfele Vietnam and GIZ on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany with an aim to improve access to knowledge & training for Vietnamese wood processing companies and qualify them to become producers of quality and design oriented furniture for export, meeting European standards.
Together with the support of Handicraft And Wood Industry Association (HAWA) and the Forest Products Association of Binh Dinh (FPA Binh Dinh), GIZ & Häfele Vietnam established two training locations in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi and a mobile training unit providing trainings with three levels of expertise (basic, advanced, master), giving in-depth knowledge on the work with different materials, advanced machinery, modern fittings and design tools.
Following the success of this project, from 2016, Häfele Vietnam has planned to form a new training program for architectural hardware, furniture fittings, decorative materials and design softwares that aims at providing further knowledge to university students, carpenters, interior designers and HAWA members.
