Shima Seiki opens subsidiary in Vietnam

Shima Seiki, a leading Japanese flat knitting machine manufacturer, has opened a wholly owned subsidiary in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, this month.

With its economically advantageous wages and plentiful workforce combined with investments from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea in light of the Free Trade Agreement with the EU going into effect in 2018, the company is seeing a flourish in Vietnam’s textile industry with growing demand for Shima Seiki computerised knitting machines and computerised cutting machines.

As a result, the company has opened a wholly-owned subsidiary to strengthen its sales, service and demonstration capacity for its product line. According to the manufacturer, the establishment of a subsidiary linked directly with Shima Seiki headquarters should provide peace of mind for customers who are currently, or planning on, doing business in Vietnam.

Private show

For its open house event a private show will be held on its premises. On display will be SVR122 computerised flat knitting machine that features such Shima Seiki innovations as digital stitch control (DSCS) and spring-type moveable sinker system.

Also on display will be the compact and economical SSR112 computerised flat knitting machine, P-CAM182 multi-ply computerised cutting machine suited to the automotive industry, and the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system capable of realistic simulation that allows for virtual sampling, minimising the need for costly, time- and resource-consuming sample-making.
