Howden has opened a new office in Hanoi, Vietnam. The new office complements Howden’s existing location in Ho Chi Minh City and brings greater access to the company’s procurement, quality control, technical assistance and project execution in northern Vietnam. As a business with a strong reputation for client monitoring and service, this move brings Howden experts closer to hand for vital industries and supports Howden’s original equipment manufacturer, aftermarket and Retrofit expertise.
Camille Levy, President of the Asia Pacific Region at Howden, comments: “The opening of our new office in Hanoi comes on the back of the growth we are experiencing in Vietnam, particularly in thermal renewables, H2, power generation, cement and petrochemical. It confirms our significant role and strong reputation as a key provider expertise and innovation which contributes to the energy transition and provides support for our customers’ vital processes.
“Howden has a long history of strength in both traditional and emerging sectors in APAC. We already support over 300 pieces of installed equipment within Vietnam and are growing both our OEM, AFM, Retrofit and service support in response to customer demand.”
Headed by Mr Tran Nhu Hai, the office is well-located 30km from Hanoi main airport and 8km from the city centre. Sectors supported by the expanded team include power generation, cement, petrochemical, mining, energy recovery, oil & gas, amongst others.
Howden focuses on helping customers increase the energy efficiency and effectiveness of their air and gas handling processes enabling them to make sustainable improvements in their environmental impact.
