The Distribution Center in Vietnam
EBARA CORPORATION (EBARA) operates a distribution center in Vietnam while the company strengthens the global supply chain management of the EBARA Group.
EBARA’s medium term management plan “E-Plan2022” aims to increase the operating margin ratio of its Pumps Business that is our core. Our Standard Pumps Business enjoys the top market share in Japan and, in order to expand sales in overseas markets, will proactively invest in facilities in promising regions and markets. As a part of measures for the objective, we have established the distribution center in Vietnam. We are strengthening the EBARA Group’s supply chain management to enhance our competitiveness in the global market.
2. Overview of Distribution Center
The distribution center in Southeast Asia is housed in a bonded warehouse located in an industrial park in Vietnam. A certain number of standard pumps manufactured in our factory of Italy will be stored there and shipped to the EBARA Group’s companies in the region. With the distribution center, we are able to shorten delivery periods, reduce inventory, and promote proper inventory control, so that we will be able to build a structure which can provide products efficiently to the market.
3. Future Plan
Later in the future, a knock-down center will be built near the distribution center. Storing parts at a distribution center enables us to respond to demands with a more flexibility. Meanwhile, we aim to strengthen the entire supply chain including local procurement. In order to focus on the Standard Pumps Business by smoothly providing our products to the markets in Southeast Asia, EBARA will contribute to safe and secure lives of people in the area.
EBARA Group aims at Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through tackling ESG materiality issues based on its long-term vision and mid-term management plan and makes efforts to further increase its corporate value.
