Hanwha Vision, a global vision solution provider, has reached a cumulative production of 10 million units in its Vietnam-based manufacturing facility just five years after beginning operations at the site.
This accomplishment demonstrates the company’s growth in the global market. With this momentum, Hanwha Vision is now poised to further strengthen its business and continue rolling out its vision for Europe and beyond. Last month, Hanwha Vision held a ceremony to commemorate the landmark production milestone at its plant in the Que Vo Industrial Park of Bac Ninh Province, Vietnam.
"Hanwha Vision’s manufacturing prowess is due to our precision, efficiency, and innovation,” said Pread Um (Suk Bong), Product and Marketing Director at Hanwha Vision Europe. “In recent years, many manufacturers have struggled with supply chain challenges, yet our dedicated manufacturing facilities mean that we continue to meet the needs of our global customer base. This robust, expert supply chain has also enabled us to further innovation capabilities and launch more industry-leading products.”
The Hanwha Vision Vietnam facility was established in 2017 as part of a strategic expansion of the company’s global manufacturing bases. The site currently manufactures approximately 500 product models, including cameras, storage devices and lenses. When the facility launched its mass-production operations in 2018, the company introduced its own root certificate authority (CA), inserting device authentication into each product in the manufacturing stage to protect the entire system from security vulnerabilities.
The 60,000-square-metre manufacturing facility in Vietnam is built around environmental best practice, and its smart factory runs on power generated by solar panels installed on the roof of the building. In addition, the entire manufacturing environment is managed in an integrated manner for efficiency.
Hanwha Vision’s manufacturing operations contribute directly to the brand’s international business competitiveness. When global supply chains were disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hanwha Vision was able to produce 50% more products than the previous year thanks to its Vietnamese subsidiary's global manufacturing and supply chain management system, which spans ordering, manufacturing, production and logistics.
The 10 millionth product produced at the facility was a Hanwha Vision SolidEDGE camera, an example of the firm’s ability to deliver innovative, high-quality surveillance solutions at scale. SolidEDGE, the first real solid-state drive (SSD)- based camera, runs the WAVE VMS on the edge, providing a cost-effective and practical security solution alongside a high-quality, reliable video camera.
In March 2023, Hanwha Vision announced its ambition to be a global leader in video technology, leveraging a strategic shift beyond surveillance solutions to wider business applications for video technology.
