Orissa International delivered a market study that evaluated the suitability of Malaysia and Vietnam for a client that was looking to expand into Asia by setting up a manufacturing plant. The client’s products included valves for controlling fluids, powder or slurries in a broad range of industries, including mining, water treatment, food & beverage, chemical or petrochemical industry, biomass, cement and waste handling. To assist the client in their manufacturing site selection process, the report provided information on the cost structure, labor characteristics, infrastructure and logistics, regulatory environment, political and social factors, as well as proximity to customers and suppliers in each market.
