History of Sonkim Group
Sonkim Land is a subdivision of Sonkim Group which in turn is a reincarnation of a reputable business enterprise of the 1950’s, Dai Thanh garment factory.
During the late 1970’s and the 1980’s of the post-war period Dai Thanh had a hard time operating as a state-own cooperative. However, thanks to great efforts of the founders and workers, it survived the time and even won a few awards granted by the State for its outstanding contribution to the local economy. Those hard-earned trophies were the Third-Grade Trade & Industry medal in 1982 and Second-Grade Trade & Industry medal in 1984.
Early 1990’s with the private sector officially recognized by the State, successors of Dai Thanh founded Son Kim as a private limited company in 1993 and later Sonkim Group. Sonkim Group on the one hand expanded the company’s traditional garment business to fashion design and manufacturing, and on the other hand started venturing further into the newly emerging businesses including retail, real estate and media.
Sonkim Land therefore came into being and it’s first property project was the Sentinel Place. The building was before long awarded “Best Office Development” in Vietnam by Asia Pacific Property in association with Bloomberg Television in 2011.
Like other divisions in the Group, Sonkim Land seeks to grow by developing outstanding teams, working with the best partners from around the world and creating world-class living spaces for Vietnam’s high-end customers. The Company has become trusted partners of Hong Kong Land, Hamon Developments, Bank Invest and others.
