Thai conglomerate SCG reported revenues of VND8.2 trillion (US$356 million) for the first quarter, a 34 per cent year-on-year increase.
The results were driven by higher sales by its chemicals business, the company said.
It was also driven by seasonal improvements in its cement-building materials business and higher contributions from its packaging business because of active downstream portfolio expansion and a diverse customer base.
SCG Packaging has been helping authorities in Hai Duong Province tackle COVID-19, donating 100 paper beds to field hospitals.
In other charity works, ‘SCG Sharing the Dream Scholarship,’ its 14-year-old flagship programme, has funded over 5,000 students nation-wide.
It provides financial aid to students and shares knowledge in communities about sustainability, ethics and leadership. — VNS
