Doosan Infracore Co., heavy equipment unit of South Korean conglomerate Doosan Group, has opened an engine training center for customers in Vietnam to reach out further to the market.
The company said Thursday the new training center in Ho Chi Minh will run training programs and information sessions for its customers of commercial vehicle engine products to help them understand its engine products and technology better. The company plans to expand the center as a regional training and distribution hub in Southeast Asia.
Doosan Infracore entered the Vietnamese heavy equipment market in 2017. Its local business kicked off by selling engine products for compressed natural gas buses and now has a number of clients including Samco and Tracomeco, supplying various engine products to the Vietnamese commercial vehicle companies.
Doosan Infracore was the first Korean company to produce diesel engines in 1958, and now it supplies engines for various sectors, ranging from commercial vehicles to construction equipment, power generator, and ships.
Its engine business division posted an operating profit of 105.7 billion won ($89.9 million) on sales of 1.09 trillion won last year.
