Daehan Global Thanh Hoa Factory
DHA Garment, one of the fastest growing garment export companies in Vietnam, has developed a new factory in Hoang Hoa. The Daehan Global Thanh Hoa Factory produces high-quality clothing for popular American and European brands, using 350 single-needle machines, 16 double-needle chain stitch machines, 80 double-needle lock stitch machines and 320 overlock machines.
The Daehan Global Thanh Hoa Factory utilizes resource-efficient design features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact and save on operating costs. LED lighting, insulation of the roof and solar photovoltaics reduce the building’s energy use, while dual-flush water closets and water-efficient urinals reduce the building’s water use. The factory’s outside walls are also painted in white to maximize solar heat reflectance.
The Daehan Global Thanh Hoa Factory has received final EDGE certification from SGS Vietnam.
