Representatives from over 40 suppliers participated in a workshop on the quality and design of plastic moulds on July 27. The workshop was part of VITASK’s intention to improve the capacity of small- and medium-sized enterprises in Vietnam's supporting industries.
Prof. Myung Ho has worked for Samsung Electronics since 1996, where he runs educational courses on management consulting, and mould technology and design, for Samsung's printer and camera products in particular. Prof. Ho, shared his experience at the workshop and introduced attendees to the pros and cons of moulds and some basic errors during the production process.
The workshop was also an occasion for engineers from different firms to meet and discuss their experiences and to meet potential new customers or partners.
Lee Jun Ho, director of VITASK said, “We selected the subject for the workshop after studying the demand of the supporting industries and recognised that many firms would be interested in this topic.”
“VITASK will continue to implement training courses this year to improve the capacity of domestic supporting companies, while also fostering the connection between Vietnamese and Korean firms in this sector,” said Lee.
Since its establishment in 2020, VITASK has supported over 100 businesses by running instruction workshops and courses. As a result, many businesses have significantly reduced costly errors. The centre also trains engineers and professional technical consultants while running material and component performance assessment programmes for Vietnamese companies.
The centre intends to continue carrying out technical support activities, human resource training courses, and opportunities for businesses in different industries to connect.
