Aluminum was discovered in 1825, began to be popular in the West in 1920, and only later was introduced to Vietnam. Dai Tan aluminum shop was born in the midst of such a primitive aluminum market – in 1998 – when the concept of “profiled aluminum” was still strange.
Just looking at the country’s production of just 12,000 tons of aluminum in 2010, modestly compared with 1.4 million tons in 2020 – a 120-fold increase in 10 years (according to statista.com) – is enough to see a start-up. How challenging was the aluminum industry at that time. Since then, it has become more and more clear to feel the bumpy road that Dai Tan has to overcome to still “ride the top of the wind” in the market after 24 years, among the few domestic brands that not only stand firm but also aim to become become a “national” aluminum brand in the minds of Vietnamese people. Behind one third of that steadfast journey is female CEO Diep Ha Hang, who continues to write the story of “durable frames to build a home”.
First, aluminum is only 1/3 the weight of steel. When exposed to oxygen, the aluminum surface forms an oxide layer that prevents aluminum products from rusting.
CEO Diep Ha Hang revealed that Dai Tan holds modern techniques to create a durable and timeless aluminum frame. The first is to find a formula that mixes about 98% of pure aluminum with other alloys to enhance the inherent advantages of aluminum such as durability, flexural strength, etc. As a result, aluminum profiled products have high quality. higher, obtained ASTM B221M-21 certification from USA. Next, Dai Tan carefully researches to produce aluminum bars with various thicknesses up to 2mm, which are not only safe but also suitable in terms of technical and aesthetic standards for each product line such as doors. , windows, partitions, facades, wardrobes, kitchen cabinets…
CEO Diep Ha Hang also invested millions of dollars in technology, realizing the dream of “European aluminum building Vietnamese houses”. Located on an area of 18,000 m², the factory is invested with modern imported equipment, products that meet national construction standards QCVN16:2017/BXD, international operation and quality management standards ISO 9001:2015.
Particularly, the powder coating line is certified by 2 major organizations: Jotun Super Durable standard from Jotun (Norway) and AAMA from Akzonobel (USA), can produce products with paint color warranty up to 25 years. With 12 exquisite colors to choose from.
CEO Diep Ha Hang once confided: she took over the housekeeper when she returned from abroad, so she faced many challenges. Not to mention, she also confronts the stereotype that it is difficult for women to lead well in an industry dominated by men. But the female CEO believes that the journey to prove herself is also the journey to break prejudice for herself, as well as for aluminum.
With a firm belief that sustainable development will lead to success and tireless commitment, CEO Diep Ha Hang has continued the journey of building a home by further expanding Dai Tan’s application in interior and exterior.
Dai Tan under the leadership of CEO Diep Ha Hang was a boom period in product research and development. The team constantly launches new products in a variety of fields from architectural construction (doors, partitions, facades), durable goods (kitchen cabinets, wardrobes…), to “measurement” solutions. shoemaking” for each customer group. Models are diverse from functions (sliding doors, rotating doors, opening doors, sliding doors…) to the number of wings (1 wing, 2 wings, 4 wings…) suitable for modern architecture.
Only for aluminum doors, Dai Tan has many models that update the latest design trends in the world such as angled windows, large plate glass doors, smart doors, French sliding doors…. Dai Tan also offers a variety of aluminum systems such as DT55, 1000, or 700, DT93… with different thicknesses and technical characteristics, best meeting the requirements of diversifying products such as doors and windows. , partitions, facades, cabinets…
Favored by architects, Dai Tan aluminum has been present in many projects across the country, in which, there are projects where Dai Tan aluminum is used for most of the exterior area.
To have Dai Tan as colorful as it is today, CEO Diep Ha Hang said it comes from hands and brains, internal strength and youth from a team of 400 employees. Each individual in the company is likened to an aluminum frame, always with a spirit of curiosity, the will to overcome all difficulties to become more and more solid, together creating a sustainable frame.
