On March 16, 2017, the first year students of High quality program and International study program in Industrial management and Business management – Bach Khoa University (BKU) visited Kizuna Serviced Factory. This was the second time Kizuna collaborated with BKU to organize a student tour to introduce the model of factories operating here The total of 50 students were divided into two groups, went together with two teachers to support in the morning and afternoon.
To start with, Mr. Tran Duy Vu – Deputy General Director of Kizuna JV Corporation has a sincerely and witty sharing about his experience through many working years. Always mindful of “doing the right things before doing things right”, he advised students to consider carefully when choosing to a career that stick with their life. Next, the introduction of Kizuna was also presented so that students can have a more general overview of the factory as well as production and business activities of enterprises here.
Started operation in 2012, Kizuna, led by Chairman of the Board – Mr. Doan Hong Dung – an Alumni of BKU – has been known by domestic and foreign investors as the pioneer of Rental Serviced Factory in the South of Vietnam. Up to now, all three projects with modern facilities have been almost filled by more than 80 SMEs specializing in assembling, processing and manufacturing a wide variety of products. It is worth mentioning that Kizuna not only leased ready-built factories but also successfully used the service-sharing model for customers such as corporate income tax incentives, legal aid procedures, translation services, IT services, forklift rental, meeting rooms and many other utilities.
To fulfill the mission of “Investing in people and products to increase the difference throughout the operation of the organization, to create effective production environment, bring added value for customers and the members of the organization, contributing to the development of business community in Vietnam”, Kizuna has been creating conditions for SMEs to be able to put into operation right from the start of business, saving both time and money while ensuring their work efficiency.

Visiting factories and real production environments is an integral part of the tour. The morning group had the opportunity to visit Active Vietnam Factory Co., Ltd., which is headquartered at workshop E3 - Kizuna Serviced Factory, a business specializing in processing spare parts for motorcycles.
