Kurt Frankenberger, authorised distributor cum representative of Windshear's Asia-Pacific distribution network, said at the event, “Today's opening of the VINAFOAM factory marks a milestone for Vietnam’s fire-fighting industry as it hallmarks a renewed economic co-operation and integration between Vietnam and the world. Windshear is honoured and proud to become the first distributor of VINAFOAM in the Asia-Pacific. In April 2019, when the first product rolled out from the production line with EN and ICAO Certification, not to mention the factory's ISO 9001 certification, we decided to order 4,000 litres of concentrates to distribute to the fire, oil, and gas chemical, and other industries to help save life and property. We believe that the perfect quality of foam and the effective operation of the factory will drive VINAFOAM’s business to a prosperous, profitable, and happy future.”
