The TBS Story
“If the world can, we can.” Based on a firm belief in the talent and ability of the Vietnamese people, we have built and broadened TBS over the past 25 years, demonstrating the great potential of Vietnamese industry in the global marketplace
I was born to a family of educators in Thai Binh Province. Even as a young boy, I saw the struggles and poverty my countrymen experienced which fueled in me a burning desire to help make my country prosperous, on par with the world’s leading nations.
As a young man, those childhood ambitions continued to burn bright, and after some time in the military, I immersed myself in study with a view to one day having a share in building my country’s economy.
The day we completed our military training, Bich, Son and I began our “economic assault” on the business world with a brash idea to set up a leather footwear company. Our “baby” is now a giant, one of Vietnam’s largest international manufacturers.
We were thrilled to see our dream become a reality when in September 1992 we official established our first footwear factory. The experience and perseverance gained from our time in the military provided a solid foundation on which we built the TBS Group. With our brothers-in-arms and our colleagues, we have positioned TBS to help achieve our goal of expanding the role of Vietnamese industry in the global market.
