On October 11, after nearly two years of construction, Amkor Technology Vietnam officially inaugurated the world's largest Amkor factory at Yen Phong 2C Industrial Park in Bac Ninh province with Viglacera Corporation, a major building materials maker and industrial park developer in Vietnam, acting as the developer.

Amkor is one of the world's largest providers of outsourced semiconductor packaging, design, and test services with thousands of diverse semiconductor products rendered to trusted customers and partners globally.

The fresh factory at Yen Phong 2C Industrial Park is deemed the smartest and most state-of-the art factory in the group's global assembly and testing system, focusing on providing Advanced System in Package solutions.

The new facility will span 230,000 sq.m, with a total investment value touching $1.6 billion. Amkor will produce, assemble and test semiconductor materials to feed the burgeoning needs from strategic partners who are global tech giants, such as Qualcomm, Samsung, Apple, NVIDIA, Foxconn, Broadcom, LG, and SK Hynix.

The Amkor Yen Phong 2C (Bac Ninh) facility will aid the formation and development of Vietnam’s semiconductor ecosystem, laying the bedrock for Vietnam to carve a spot on the world map of semiconductor component manufacturing.

At the launch ceremony, CEO of Amkor Technology Vietnam Kim Sung Hun expressed his gratitude to Viglacera Corporation and Bac Ninh province’s leaders for supporting and creating better conditions for helping the company achieve construction progress, especially during the pandemic.

With seamless and compelling infrastructure, the Amkor Bac Ninh facility is set to become an important base, a pillar in the group's operational network for sustainable development.

Amkor Technology’s choice to invest in Yen Phong 2C Industrial Park once again affirms the capacity and reputation of Viglacera as an industrial park (IP) developer.

With a more than 20-year track record in industrial real estate development, Viglacera is deemed one of the top businesses in foreign investment attraction, particularly enticing global tech and clean energy players.

Each of Viglacera's IPs features the presence of top corporations such as Samsung, Amkor, Hyosung, Foxconn, Qisda, BYD, Kortek, and Canon.

To meet strict requirements from these global partners, Viglacera’s IPs eye synchronous technical and social infrastructure systems, buoyed with compelling utility services.

Among them, it is impossible not to mention the urban areas and housing complexes catered for workers at the IPs.

The projects attest Viglacera's social responsibility in ensuring social wellbeing, solving workers’ accommodation, indirectly supporting costs and creating abundant human resources for businesses as well as regenerating labour resources.

Viglacera's IPs have been operating effectively, eyeing the fastest occupancy rate in the region, and are a trusted investment destination for more than 300 domestic and foreign businesses, enticing more than $16 billion of foreign direct investment.

By 2025, Viglacera aims to bolster the number of IPs in its portfolio to 20 with 10-plus fresh IPs, with a total additional area from 2,000-3,000ha to develop industrial land.

Viglacera's IPs are located in six localities in Vietnam’s northern and central regions, providing diverse choices for investors. With cleared space, complete and modern infrastructure, the IPs are poised to welcome businesses to rent and build factories.
