Meiko is a leading manufacturer and assembler of printed circuit boards, with six plants in Japan and two in China. In Vietnam, the company built a factory in Thach That Industrial Park (Hanoi) in 2006. At that time, the factory was one of the 10 largest foreign direct investment projects and the largest electronic production project. To date, the company has three manufacturing plants in Vietnam with a total investment of $500 million and creating more than 7,000 jobs.
