Vietnam factories feeling impact of temporary U.S. shutdowns

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam — Furniture plants here are starting to feel the effects of a slowdown in orders from the U.S., which is forcing many to make adjustments of their own ranging from workforce reductions to temporarily shutting down finishing and production lines.


The situation puts factories in the difficult position of right-sizing their operations to the fit the demand, while keeping enough workers employed to be at full staff levels when orders return.


“The effects of COVID-19 hitting the U.S. are definitely being felt here,” said Dwayne Wood, general manager, sales and marketing at case goods and upholstery manufacturer Kaiser Furniture. “While Kaiser is not planning on a work stoppage, many factories are taking extended time off.”


He said that Kaiser is running staggered shifts of three- to four-day work weeks at reduced hours at its K1 wood plant, which will allow the company to keep more people employed, “albeit at significantly reduced hours.”
