It is said to be built on 11.5 hectares of land area, its total investment capital is signed at VND1.137 billion, and it uses technologies from Europe, China, and inside Viet Nam.

The total capacity of the factory is set at 60,000 tons of products per annual. Once gone into operation, the factory would take full use of the local raw materials such as used paper, as well as used imported paper and paper pulp from abroad.
