Tell us about your company.
We founded Midway Metals Vietnam in 2005 and are proud to have grown this amazing company from modest beginnings to being a global leader in stainless steel manufacturing.
When we set up this company we realised there was a niche market that we could tap into. We wanted to recapture the production values, quality and consistency that we saw had been lacking in stainless steel production. Setting up the business in Vietnam has made this ambition a reality, far exceeding our expectations in terms of stability, cost effectiveness, geographical advantage and the willingness to embrace our vision.
We have a long history in the stainless industry through our partner Midway Metals Australia. Long-time clients of Midway Metals back in Australia and new clients around the world have trusted us to establish a manufacturing facility where they can place orders offshore but feel as comfortable as if we were located right next door.
We look forward to the chance to share more about our operations and our vision to be at the top of our industry for quality, price and service worldwide.

The Midway Group employs over 500 people in 4 countries throughout the Asia Pacific Region and exports to customers all over the world.
In Vietnam, we are having 120 and will be added up to 125 by the end of 2016.

Tell us about opportunities you have for career advancement and talent development.
