Tien Phong Plastic Joint Stock Co. (Haiphong, Vietnam) will be the first pipe manufacturer in Vietnam to produce large PE pipes with external diameters of up to 2,000 mm. The company ordered a complete pipe extrusion line, which is to be delivered in spring 2015 from battenfeld-cincinnati. In 2011, Tien Phong had already decided to acquire a turnkey PE pipe extrusion line, including a die with an innovative cooling system. This equipment served the company well and as a result, the customer chose a die with internal cooling again this time.
The state-owned company Tien Phong ranks among the leading Vietnamese producers of pipes and fittings made of u-PVC, HDPE and PP-R. "Our pipes are manufactured to international standards, which is why we pay special attention to the quality of our production lines. We are already operating several lines from battenfeld-cincinnati and are particularly pleased about the material and energy-saving operation of this equipment and its easy handling," said Nguyen Quoc Truong, Tien Phong's General Director.
