Reading Time: 1 minute

Mascot productionDenmark’s largest manufacturer of workwear, Mascot, has opened a newly built factory in Laos on 9000 square meters, the company said in a release on January 3.

The new production unit becomes the fourth in a series of Mascot factories in Southeast Asia. The factory is located in Vita Industrial Park, some 20 kilometers from Laos’ capital Vientiane.

Choosing Laos for the establishment of the new factory was very natural considering the close geographical proximity to the existing factories in northern Vietnam, the company said, citing an “excellent business environment” and “helpful government and local authorities”.

“Since we obtained the investment license, it has taken less than a year to complete the project, and I am very much looking forward to seeing the first Made in Laos products,” CEO Michael Grosbøl said. In the new year, an increasing extent of workwear will be produced from the new production in Laos. In the course of 2014 it is expected that the workforce of the new factory will reach about 800 people.
