VTV.vn - Germany’s crane supplier Kocks Ardelt Kranbau on July 8 signed a contract for the supply of container cranes with Dinh Vu Petroleum Service Port JSC of Vietnam.

Addressing the signing ceremony in Brandenburg state, Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Nguyen Minh Vu expressed his delight at close cooperation between Kocks Ardelt Kranbau and Vietnamese enterprises.

He highly valued Kocks Ardelt Kranbau’s move not to only export their products to Vietnam but also cooperate with Vietnamese firms to manufacture large cranes right in the Southeast Asian country for export to many markets around the world.

This brings benefits to both sides, the diplomat said, expressing his belief that the two companies will continue to expand cooperation in the future.

Kocks Ardelt Kranbau’s General Director Bernd Flaskamp affirmed that Vietnamese enterprises are leading partners of the German company.

The partnership between Kocks Ardelt Kranbau and Vietnamese businesses in the past time has recorded good results, he said, adding that cranes manufactured in Vietnam have good quality and meet international standards, and have been exported to many countries in South America, Russia, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

Both sides want to further expand export markets for these cranes, and promote more joint projects in the time to come, he said.

Flaskamp suggested the Vietnamese side create favourable conditions for experts from Kocks Ardelt Kranbau to soon come to Vietnam to assist Vietnamese partners in the production process.

Kocks Ardelt Kranbau is a leading supplier of cranes for loading and unloading cargo for major ports in Vietnam such as Hai Phong, Dinh Vu, Ha Long, Da Nang. Having present in Vietnam since 1989, Kocks Ardelt Kranbau has not only provided finished products to Vietnam but also cooperated with Vietnamese enterprises such as Lilama 18 JSC and Tan Cang - Cai Mep Towage Service JSC to manufacture cranes for export to other countries, in which the German firm provides production technology, training and quality management systems, and skilled experts to support the Vietnamese enterprises.
