Manchester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 28, 2013 -- The factory in Laos will work together with MASCOT's existing factories in Vietnam to produce in excess of 90% of MASCOT's clothing.
Building in Laos will increase flexibility
MASCOT has strategically chosen Vietnam's neighboring Laos for the new factory. This is to acquire a broader geographical production base and to increase flexibility and production capacity. The factory is being built in VITA Industrial Park, some 20 km from Laos's capital Vientaine.
Opening by year-end
Planning of the construction of the new factory in Laos is well underway. MASCOT's CEO Michael Grosbol, together with the director of MASCOT Vietnam, Thomas Bo Pedersen, are deeply involved in every detail of the build and are now ready to begin construction. "Drawings have been made and we have signed a contract for the steel structure, soil and concrete work. The actual construction work begins this week, and we expect to open the new factory by year-end," said Michael Grosbol.
As with the construction in Vietnam, MASCOT in Laos will again set the standards for high building safety and socially responsible production with safe and good working conditions.
MASCOT's factory in Laos will be approximately 9,000 m2 and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
