Vingroup was founded in 1993 by a group of Vietnamese youths in Ukraine under the name of Technocom, which was mainly involved in the food production industry.
After growing as one of the largest and most influential companies in Ukraine in the early 21st century, Technocom looked to Vietnam to expand its business in real estate and hospitality with the initial key brands of Vincom and Vinpearl.
The two brands merged into Vingroup JSC in 2012, which has since developed into one of the most dynamic, successful, and well-capitalized companies in Vietnam.
Vingroup has consistently been assessed by experts and the market as the leading real estate developer in Vietnam, as evidenced by other credible rankings and awards.
