DKSH are the leading Market Expansion Services provider for companies who want to grow their business in Vietnam. Serving our business partners through our extensive global networks and industry expertise, we help companies to grow their businesses in new and existing markets.
As one of Vietnam’s leading business organizations, our network of 18 business locations, including offices, distribution centers and crossdocks, across the country and 4,700 employees make us an international “local” company. We are committed to building long-term business partnerships in Vietnam. We constantly strive to bring world-class standards to industries in Vietnam while also contributing to the development of local communities.
DKSH Vietnam was originally established in 1890 when we began business activities in Saigon and Haiphong. For the next 60 years we were active in importing consumer and pharmaceutical products and also representing shipping lines and insurance companies. We withdrew from Northern Vietnam in 1954 and from Saigon in 1955.
DKSH re-entered Vietnam in 1991, around 100 years after our initial entry. Attracted by the government's “open door” policy in the early 1990s, we 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, DKSH changed the company name 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.
