1993: A small production base is formed
In 1993, two members of the first graduating class of Printing Technology Department at the HCMC University of Technology and Education started up a small facility specializing in silk-screen printing, pre-press, and offset printing. Products at that time were mainly stationery: business cards, envelopes, letterheads, invoices …. The facility was located in a very small house in Go Vap district.
1998: Anh Khoa’s Brother officially established
By 1998, the government’s new open market policy had attracted many foreign investors to Vietnam. Anh Khoa’s Brother was officially established and its goal was to meet the requirements of commercial transactions with international clients. In the same year, Anh Khoa’s Brother brand was first introduced to The US, Japan, Switzerland, and other European customers.
2003: First International Order
In 2003, the first internationally outsourced order made at the company was a pharmaceutical dictionary (thousands of pages, color print and hardcover), which required strict printing, pre-press, and post-press standards. As Vietnamese printing companies at that time could not meet the standards, we outsourced printing in neighbor countries. At this time, the company moved to its new headquarters in Tan Binh District.
2007: Acquisition of the first factory
The period of 2007-2008 was a tremendously difficult period of the country when the real estate bloom has just passed, resulting in the huge consequences for credit capital. However, to maintain and enhance relations to foreign customers such as Metro, MGB, Scancom, Ogilvy, Mims … Anh Khoa’s Brother Board of Directors still decided to invest in a new factory in Tan Phu district, with the addition of CTP from Dainippon Screen, Mitsubishi Diamond 4 color industrial printer, and the most modern CIP 4 connection control system at the time.
2012: First engagement in the global supply chain of printing, packaging and packing products
With a passion to join the global print/packaging outsource market, during the 2012 – 2014 period, the company shifted its focus onto investing in human resources, management systems, and equipment. All staffs, since then, are required to learn continuously to reach the strict requirements of large corporations in the world. Anh Khoa’s Brother Company is proud to be the first printing company in Vietnam to successfully integrate into the international print/packaging supply chain.
