Ladies and Gentleman

First of all, my heartiest congratulation on the official opening of Thygesen Sewing Vietnam.
Denmark and Japan have a long and strong partnership.

In 1867, Denmark and Japan signed an agreement on mutual commerce and navigation. This year is a memorable year of 150 years since the conclusion of the treaty.

I will also introduce that the Thygesen Textile Group and GSI CREOS CORPORATION were founded in the same year 1931.

Vietnam and Japan also have a long and strong partnership.

In March 2014, Mr. Truong Tan Sang, President of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam came to Japan as a state guest.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited Vietnam in January 2017.

Their Majesties the Emperor and Empress visited Vietnam as a state guest in March.

And we have an economic partnership agreement.

In Japan and Vietnam, exchange of economic, cultural and human resources is becoming more active and building good relationships.

In December 2016, our Hanoi office staff visited Thygesen Textile Vietnam for the first time.

We and Thygesen Textile Vietnam have made various cooperation and efforts so that production can be started as Thygesen Sewing Vietnam commences operation.

First we started with searching for a fabric factory, we made samples of fabrics, made product samples, and developed them step by step.

Finally, we received orders from Japanese customers and started production at Thygesen Sewing Vietnam in October 2016.

Japanese customers are very strict in quality.

Thygesen Textile Vietnam and Thygesen Sewing Vietnam also responded to the demand for quality improvement from Japanese customers.

Thanks to both the efforts and patience, we were able to ship goods safely in March 2017.

Here I would like to thank Thygesen Textile Vietnam and Thygesen Sewing Vietnam for their generous cooperation and efforts.

For the future development of both sides, GSI CREOS CORPORATION will work together with Thygesen Textile Vietnam and Thygesen Sewing Vietnam to deliver products with fine quality to Japanese customers.

Thank you very much.

On behalf of the leadership of Yen Lap District, it is my pleasure to attend the Grand opening of Thygesen Sewing Vietnam in Yen Lap Industrial Park, Yen Lap district. I would like to send my warmest greetings to all of you today.

Chairman of Council Member’s Speech

Mr. Morten expressed his pride in the new milestone that Thygesen had been achieved and sent thanks to the Local Leadership, all of the Customers, and partners.

Thanks Mr. Tran Quang Tuan for the nice speech. I agree with you in many ways and it is so important that we know how to work together so that it will benefit both us and the Vietnamese people.

Today is a milestone for our company Thygesen Textile Vietnam, but it is also a milestone for the mother company in Denmark – Thygesen Textile group. Our company was founded in 1931 by my grand-father – he was originally a farmer who used to work with farming for more than 20 years. He was probably the one who made one of the biggest decisions –  to go from farming to the textile.

Through the last 3 generations there have been made many important decisions and we have been growing our business a lot for the last 30 years, where the main growth comes from our investments abroad.

Our investments have always followed the evolution of the textile industry, and therefore it was also natural that we made a new setup in Vietnam.

In the years where we have been in Vietnam, the country have developed a lot as seen from an investor’s point of view – all for the better. One of the important things lately is the signing of the free trade agreement with Europe.

It will be very important for us – and Vietnam, that we in the future can compete on equal terms with other countries in this region.  The free trade agreement is one of the reasons that makes us believe that the timing for further investments in Vietnam is right.

We are on a road of development, but this development does not come by itself – it comes by hard work and fruitful corporations, and there are many to thanks:

  • The Yen Lap Communist Party Steering Committee and District People’s Committee (for valuable support and privileges given to us as the first investor in the Yen lap district)
  • The Danish embassy
  • Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry
  • Domestic and overseas customers
  • Suppliers
  • Partners
  • And YOU – all our employees – we could not have done this without you – thanks for the good and loyal support and work that you have offered to us over the latest years
  • A special thanks to the management in particular our general manager Ms. Hien, who have worked loyal with us since 2008.

As mentioned earlier, today is a milestone for our company. This stone should be seen as the first step of many to come. We believe in a bright future for Vietnam and our business here.”
