After a discussion regarding future collaboration, they visited one of four TBS Group R&D centers that were developing samples for shoe manufacturers such as Sketchers and Decathlon. Mr. Hinrich and the Hinrich Foundation team left the factory impressed by TBS Group's vision to develop talents for footwear and handbag manufacturing in Vietnam, along with the company's plan to expand internationally to Myanmar and Bangladesh.

TBS Group is a leading footwear and handbags manufacturer, and is the only Vietnamese-owned company in the top five footwear and handbag exporters in Vietnam.
