Hai Duong, Vietnam, Jan 29: Amidst the recent growing demand of pumps for irrigation and flood control in Southeast Asia, Ebara Vietnam Pump Co., Ltd. (EVPC), a subsidiary of Ebara Corporation of Japan, who is one of the leading pump manufacturers in the world, opened a new foundry in Hai Duong, Vietnam.
Partial operation of the new foundry started in Oct er 2013 and an opening ceremony was held on December 3, 2013.
By opening this foundry, Ebara established an improved manufacturing network that can supply large-scale pumps for irrigation, flood control etc. more quickly to Vietnam and other areas of Southeast Asia.
Officials from Hai Duong and Hanoi were invited to the opening ceremony.
The attendees were given a tour of the foundry to observe the sophisticated dissolving and casting operations based on highly advanced Ebara manufacturing technology.
There are currently over 1,000 Ebara pumps in Vietnam that are active not only in irrigation and flood control, but also in industry and tap water supply.
When heavy floods attacked Hanoi city in 2008, Ebara pumps installed at the Yen So Pump Station in southern Hanoi operated non-stop for one week to contribute remarkably in preventing flood damage from worsening.
