New OrthoLite plant in Vietnam

Open cell foam insole manufacturer OrthoLite has opened a factory in Vietnam that will employ a reported 300 workers and produce three million pairs of insoles each month. According to the company, local staff will be employed for product development, and the establishment of this new plant will lead to shorter lead times for customers.

“Footwear brands want to get their products to consumers faster than ever,” said OrthoLite President, Pamela Gelsomini, following the opening ceremony. “With the opening of our first factory in Vietnam, we will have the ability to provide better service to our customers.”

The new 13,000 square metre facility is located in Thuan An Town, Binh Duong Province. This is one of the largest industrial cities in the country and close to Ho Chi Minh City. OrthoLite has two factories in China, as well as two partner factories in Vietnam, one partner factory in Indonesia and two partners in Korea.
