Established in September 2006, Sumitomo Electric Interconnect Products (Vietnam), Ltd. (SEPV) first began manufacturing and selling rollers for laser printers, flexible flat cables (FFCs), and flexible printed circuits (FPCs). In November 2014, when our new plant was added, we began manufacturing and selling cable assemblies (CBAs).

Launching New Products and Promoting Product Transfers from Other Manufacturing Bases, thereby Increasing Our Sales

Located in the Tien Son Industrial Zone of Bac Ninh Province, in the east of Hanoi City, SEPV manufactures and sells rollers for printers, FFCs, and CBAs. Currently, we are launching new products and gradually promoting product transfers from other manufacturing bases.

In September 2015 I transferred to SEPV, and am now responsible mainly for production management. Rapid environmental changes in the electronics field have posed many challenges in production and procurement management. Every day we work very hard with local staff members to overcome any challenges that arise.

Places of Interest

Tranquil Atmosphere with Harmony Between Old and New Cultures

While Vietnamese-style houses from olden days still remain in the city of Hanoi, modern structures and high-rise buildings overlook the streets too, creating a well-blended atmosphere of old and new cultures. On the streets, many people enjoy foods and tea. It is very hot in summer in Hanoi, causing people in the city to be very active early in the morning, as well as later in the evening. In the morning, they do physical exercises or dancing, while later in the evening they go shopping or enjoy dinner outside. On weekend evenings, the area around Hoan Kiem Lake, a popular sightseeing destination, is temporarily closed to motor traffic so pedestrians can enjoy shopping at souvenir stalls and viewing live music. You can enjoy a very cheerful and fun atmosphere.

Healing Rural Landscapes in the Hanoi Suburbs

A few-hours’ ride by car from Hanoi takes you to a rural area with a fine view different from what you would see in urban areas. The view will convey scenes of Vietnam of long ago. Mai Chau is renowned for its spacious, beautiful rural landscapes, although the village is currently being developed as a resort destination. In this village you can enjoy hiking and cycling in a rich environment, and also having delicious local dishes.
