Thursday 17, 03 2022
In the list of 5 largest paint and coating companies in Vietnam prepared by VietnamCredit, there are 4 enterprises with foreign investment capital. This shows that Vietnamese paint businesses are much less competitive in their own home market.


4 Oranges Co., Ltd is a 100% foreign invested company belonging to ASIA LEADER INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT.

Identifying Vietnam as a potential market and a foundation for development to other countries in the region, in 2004, 4 Oranges invested in a modern technology line with a production capacity of 100 million liters of paint and 60,000 tons of putty per year, with a cost of 14.5 million USD at Duc Hoa 1 Industrial Park, Long An province. This is one of the three largest paint factories in Southeast Asia today.

Regarding production materials, applying strict input inspection principles, most of the raw materials for production of 4 Oranges are imported from famous chemical corporations such as: Degussa (USA), Eliokem (France), Dow Chemical ( USA), Rohm & Hass (USA), Cray Valley (Maylaysia), Nuplex (Australia), etc.

4 Oranges Co., Ltd is the enterprise with the largest revenue in Vietnam's paint market in the period of 2018 - 2020 (VietnamCredit data). However, due to the impact of the pandemic, the revenue of this business decreased from 176.2 million USD in 2018 to 150.7 million USD in 2020.
