LEAN manufacturing is a philosophy which is commonly applied among global corporations. It attempts to help companies eliminate unnecessary wastes to improve output quality, to maximize production and speed to market and mostly, to significantly save on costs.
During the eighteen years of operation, URC Vietnam has demonstrated a pioneering spirit to become a role model of sustainable development. The values that the URC Vietnam has envisaged, from product quality to production process, all gear to a single goal: Shaping an image of a large-scale corporation, leading in the application of global standards in operation.
Outstanding Products that bring customers perfect brand experience
Providing qualified products that are both delicious and meeting food safety and hygiene standards is a highlight of URC Vietnam's production mindset for many years. Since the corporation’s first factory in Vietnam came into operation in early 2006, URC Vietnam has developed a diverse portfolio of quality products like C2 Ready-To-Drink Tea, Red Dragon Drink, Cream O & Magic Biscuits, Dynamite Candy and Puff Corn, Chikki Snacks, etc. for the Vietnam market. This wide range of outstanding products with high standards of quality and safety has helped URC keep winning Vietnamese customers’ hearts for more than a decade.
Cutting-edge Production and Supply Chain with global standards
To produce and supply those outstanding products, URC Vietnam has built its production lines using the best automated equipment and following the highest international standards such as Food Safety System Certification – FSSC 22000, ISO 9001:2015, Good Manufacturing Practice – GMP, Good Warehousing Practice - GWP, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001:2018, to name a few. In 2019, URC Vietnam as part of the Universal Robina Corporation adopted the OGSM with four key How to Win Strategies – “People and Planet Friendly Culture”, “Products and Brands People Love”, “Product Supply Chain Transformation” and “Preferred Partner of Choice” in pursuit of its purpose of an unrelenting commitment to provide our customers with better choices for shared success.
As a part of the Product Supply Chain Transformation, Universal Robina has adopted the TPM for LEAN Acceleration to rearrange the entire supply chain and improve manufacturing capabilities, toward an ultimate goal to reduce waste, improve speed to market and create positive values for the corporation and its consumers.
TPM is a proven program of efficiency and capability program to make a breakthrough in production and supply chain activities, affirmed by applications of many global businesses. Specifically, TPM provides standard methods for the enterprise to upgrade its management system, maintain the achievements, improve the quality of facilities and the working environment of employees, as well as transform the entire supply chain with a flexible and reliable production system. The program is founded on the springboard of the Japanese renowned 5S model which focuses on a clean and healthy environment for workers.
Regarding to URC Vietnam’s application of TPM program, Mr. Laurent Levan – President and General Director of URC Vietnam shared: “In the spirit of continuously promoting business results and developing human capacity, URC Vietnam has officially applied TPM in production since 2020 for the enhancement of our business. The launch of the TPM program is surely an important milestone in the branding process of our sustainable development.”
