We finished Sika experience trip yesterday. However, now, I am writing blog because after finishing the trip, I had a long sleep from 11pm, 22nd to 4pm, 23rd.
Yesterday, we left the hotel at 7.30 am to go to Bac Ninh province. Bac Ninh is a province with many factories and Sika factory also located here.
Mr. Tuan Anh together with us visited Sika factory.
This factory is smaller than Sika Dong Nai factory, but products are the same. Because of weather difference between South and North, Sika Bac Ninh products has a little difference to be congruous with condition. The market demand is big, so Sika factory is expanding.
After that, Mr. Noel together with us visited Nokia factory which uses Sika products. This prọect is very big with total investment peaching up 302 million USD.
In the afternoon, we visited JW Marriott – first six stars hotel in Tu Liem, Ha Noi. This hotel is very modern and beautiful with the swimming pool on the top floor, the grass on roof. To have this, they used Sika membrance.
In the evening, we had farewell party with Mr. Adam – Deputy Director General, Mr Trung – North branch manager, Mr Tuan Anh, Mr Noel and many people.
We were very happy after a interesting experience trip. We want to say thanks so much to Sika company, experts, and staffs who guided us. I hope, in one day, I can joint Sika company. See you soon.

One more day has gone, such a great day
we began the day with a breaking news from the driver, he said one of the tires has broken down. And then we had to waited for a half an hour to get ready again, so we were late to meet Mr Peter Loh, he is branch technical manager in Da Nang, and he the one who shows us about formusa Project
The first place we visited is Phu Doanh Batching concrete, one of the most advanced concrete mixing system, said by Mr peter. It totally operates automatically, just control via the computer system right inside the contron room
He took us around the concrete mixing plant and explains to us how the system work and told us what is new technical applied to the new system, anh then he leaded us to the formusa Project
Phu Doanh concrete mixing plant only produces the product to supply the concrete for formusa, and there are three mixing concrete systems in Phu Gia plant. And you can imagine how big formosa Project is, very hug Project
After took us around and explained to us about the work site and then we have a friendly lunch together. We fisnhed the lunch and he wish us lucky and happy to leave the land of sand and wind, the middle of Viet Nam
We are going to visit sika Office in Ha Noi and the plant in Bac Ninh, look forward to the final day with Sika experience and really wanna go now
Bye for now guys
Today is such a sunny day! We have to wake up early for visit to Formusa Complex project. Quang Binh province in the morning is very romantic in the morning ! The wind from sea make me to feel comfortable. After having quickly breafast. we got on the car to go to Formusa project. it is project of Taiwan. they are long-standing partner of Sika Vietnam. I find it hard to image how big of this project. We met Mr. Peter Loh, he is branch technical manager of Sika and come from Singapo. He is a amazing person who can speak English, Chinese and Vietnamese. We got overall information of project from him. It was interesting to also know that Sika is the biggest admixture supplier with Formusa project. After that we had oppotunity to tour around the project site. Almost 11 am, the weather is very hot so we had lunch at hotel near the project site.
In the afternoon, we started to go to Ha Noi- Capital of Viet Nam. I can tell you that it is a long journey with approximately 400 km from Ha Tinh to Ha Noi. We arrived at 10 pm. the day was ended by walking in Hanoi streets. We still have long trip tomorrow so that time to say goognight!
Hanoi. I am here!
Today, we left Horizontal mountain pass at 8 am to visit Formosa industrial zones in Ha Tinh province.
Firstly, we visited 3 concrete patching plant with the guide Mr. Peter. All of them are morden and come from China
Secondly, we visited Formosa industrial zones. Formosa is one of the biggest projects of Formosa group which invests to Vung Ang district, Ha Tinh province with 15 billion dollar total investment. In the future, Formosa, which is a steel factory of Taiwan and China, has 3300 hectares area.
We also knew that Sika Da Nang branch provided all admixture for this project in 20 years.
After that, we went to Ha Noi. It took us about 10 hours to go to hotel in Ha Noi capital.
At night, although we were quite tired, we still visited Hoan Kiem lake and the biggest church.
Now, I am waiting for going to Bac Ninh factory of Sika Viet Nam tomorrow
So far we have been participating in this activity held by Sika for almost 6 days and tomorrow will be the last with Sika experience in Vietnam 2013. In the 6th day of experience, we went to visit Formosa project, a mega which can really change the imagination of Ha Tinh in particular, and the Central in general. I was taken to visit ready mix concrete plant in Ky Anh commune (Phu Doanh) and a company supplying quarry for this project.
It was good to hear from Mr Peter Loh that Sika supplies most of the admixture for concrete in this area.
Short trip to get an insight the project with a lot of building for dormitory purpose has been constructed, hope to see different imagination of Ha Tinh when i go back someday
Coming back to Hanoi a little bit at night after long travel from Ha Tinh province, but we still guided Mr. Dang and Mrs. Lang around Hoan Kiem Lake.
See you tomorrow in Bac Ninh with last memorable, and interesting moments with Sika experience
The sunlights went through the window and the sound of the ocean wind blew my sleep after a long travel. For the first time i woke up near the sea and felt the morning of the middle land. Actually it was not so hot like i imagined before, might be this was a gift from god to welcome us.
starting a journey at 8 Am, we had a little trouble with the car , then we had taken to the Formosa. This is the big project of Taiwan in VietNam including steel mill, petrol chemical with the investment up to 28.5 billion dollars. Sika now is providing for this project and Peter Loh,branch techmical manager, had been here to support this project. He is singaporean and can speak english, chinese and vietnamese very well. Peter gave us an overall view of Formosa, we were took to the site and can see how the project have been operating.
We had a lunch in a hotel near the site and enjoyed some dishes introduced by peter. that’s was delicous specially the toast duck. During the lunch we kept exchanging and sharing. Peter is a funny guy. He encouraged us to continued improving our skill especially language skill because of direct communication is the key to make relationship with customers.
Just a day living in Ha Tinh we also can feel the difficulties from the enviroment here and how hard the Sika staffs have been trying. That is absolutely a wonderful experience for us.
we moved on to the next destinations of the trip which is a capital of Viet Nam. Ha Noi is far from here about 400 km and the trip took us 8 hours. that was the longest trip i ever had, honestly i felt very tired but also happy to enjoy the night in Ha Noi. Now time to sleep to recover energy for the last day of Sika experience.
