Agilent Technologies has announced the opening of a calibration and repair services facility in Hanoi, Vietnam. The Agilent Advantage Services centre technicians and engineers speak the local language and have access to Agilent factory engineers, noted the company.

Their calibration and repair processes incorporate the same automated procedures used at service centres and mobile calibration labs around the world. As such, Agilent claims to offer the industry's largest, worldwide OEM service network with consistent quality results for calibration and repair services.

Vietnam has been steadily attracting investors in the past few years as companies seek alternatives to cut labor costs while expanding market reach in the region.

Fuji Xerox also announced last year that it chose to set up its new LED printer assembly plant in the country because it has concentrated industries such as information equipment manufacturers and an extensive land transportation network connecting to several ASEAN countries and China.

In response to the growing presence of multinational companies in the country, Vietnam plans to set up an IC development program in Ho Chi Minh City. The program's target goals include advancing design and manufacturing prototypes, building reliable fabs, promoting local IC businesses as well as providing job opportunities for the growing Vietnamese workforce. (See Vietnam gearing up for global IC stage.) National Instruments has also voiced its support for Vietnam by teaming up with local RMIT University for technology and engineering programs and offering internship opportunities for promising students.
