New Year’s celebration in MASCOT Laos

13. April 2018
Today, our colleagues in MASCOT Laos celebrated the Lao New Year, welcoming year 2561 with a great outdoor party. The hundreds of litres of holy water, which is a part of the tradition, came in very handy as the temperature reached 37 degrees.

A prominent chief monk lead the prayer to make sure that MASCOT’s success in Laos will continue. The entire ceremony follows established traditions.

The New Year party at MASCOT Laos is also an employee party. The formal New Year traditions with prayers for the coming year is therefore supplemented with formal speeches to the employees and a celebratory part where the employees perform for each other on the stage.

As a part of the tradition, MASCOT hands out awards to, among others, employee of the year which is chosen among the 700 employees. This year the award and the prize went to the seamstress Bear Yang, who is expecting her first child.

MASCOT has very ambitious development plans for the future. The construction of two new production units have just started, tripling the capacity. It is expected that MASCOT Laos will employ around 1800 employees, when the new project is full implemented.

MASCOT Laos’ managing director Thomas Bo Pedersen said in his speech: »We do have a reason for a big celebration this year. MASCOT Laos broke a new record with the highest output ever.«

The new president of Vita Part Industrial Zone, Md. Suphanh Keokhamphet also participated in the celebration, and she was very impressed with the staff performances.
