DKSH VN 20 years anniversary

2019 marks a special milestone as DKSH Vietnam celebrate the twenty-year journey since its official opening. During the last two decades, the company has been developing its reputation as the leading Market Expansion Services provider for companies who want to grow their business in Vietnam.

Vietnam, June 3, 2019 – DKSH Vietnam, the leading Market Expansion Services provider in Vietnam, is proud to celebrate its 20-years anniversary. In an era when Market Expansion Services are continuously growing and remaining one of the most promising sectors in the outsourcing industry, DKSH Vietnam has achieved two decades of innovation and steady growth.

DKSH Vietnam was originally established in 1890 when it began business activities in Saigon and Haiphong. For the next 60 years, the company was active in importing consumer and pharmaceutical products and representing shipping lines and insurance companies. It withdrew from Northern Vietnam in 1954 and from Saigon in 1955.

DKSH re-entered Vietnam in 1991, around 100 years after its initial entry. Attracted by the government's “open door” policy in the early 1990s, the company obtained an operating license for Diethelm Vietnam Co., Ltd. as a fully foreign-invested enterprise providing sales, marketing and logistics services in 1999.

In 2009, the company name was changed from Diethelm Vietnam Co., Ltd. to DKSH Vietnam Co., Ltd. to contribute to the formation and launch of a unified and global DKSH brand in 35 markets.

Its continual upgrading of existing distribution and operation network reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to providing comprehensive and customizable Market Expansion Services in Vietnam and throughout the region. During the last amazing 20 years, we have been developing our robust facilities with 18 business locations including state-of-the-art distribution centers, crossdocks, warehouses and offices across the country. 

In 1999, DKSH Vietnam officially acquired its operating license with very few members. The company has gradually reached to a superlative team of more than 4,700 employees in 2019. DKSH Vietnam is thriving towards building up an image of its company and country both by delivering quality Market Expansion Services and assistance to its clients and business partners. The company has always been an incredible assortment of dedicated and trustworthy people who have the zeal of working hard as ONE.

“As we are celebrating the DKSH Vietnam 20-years anniversary in June, I am immensely proud of you all when I look back at the journey of these significant and remarkable years. We have come through ups and downs in all these years and has been emerging as the leading Market Expansion Services provider in Vietnam,” commented Jorge Martin-Martinez, Vice President, Indochina Finance & Head Country Management, DKSH Vietnam. “For this, my sincere thanks go to my loyal and incredible team.
