Vo Khac Linh and the story of start-up

s |

(QNO) - Vo Khac Linh (27 years old), after 2 years of start-up, has determinedly followed his own path in his business.

Start-up ideas

Vo Khac Linh’s Thinh Nghi Production, Trading and Services Co. Ltd. has confirmed its market position with 6 agencies in Lam Dong, Dak Lak, Binh Duong, Quang Nam, Da Nang, and Ho Chi Minh City. It is specializing in interior products such as wooden shelves and different kinds of lamps.

Linh’s start-up idea was lighted up when he worked with automatic processing machines in Truong Hai Auto Corporation (THACO). Thinking about applying CNC automatic lathe in wood, Linh decided to leave THACO for his dream of making 3D wooden pictures, and he has had the initial success. His products are impressive and attractive to customers because of their reasonable price and originality.

The success of 3D wooden pictures led Linh to manage to make some other products such as PVC partitions and wooden shelves. All the procedures from producing to making offer for his products were taken over by himself. After a lot of difficulties, finally he found his first agency in Da Lat. Currently, Linh owns some showrooms in Da Nang, Hoi An, Tam Ky, and one interior products shop where there are always over 10 employees working.

Building a Vietnamese trade name

Thinh Nghi’s products are now more and more popular; however, its owner’s ambition does not stop there. Linh thought of a Vietnamese trade name that is capable of competing with foreign companies. As a result, the brand name of “Hoi An lamp” was born. Hoi An lamp is a kind of wooden lamp with Hoi An lantern appearance. It is beautiful, having quality, and bringing the soul of Vietnamese culture; so Linh believes in this kind of products much. His plans for 2018 are improving his knowledge of management, marketing, sale… besides replying a lot of orders from home country and abroad.
