A Tale of Friendship and Enduring Collaboration: OCEM and SECOIN



Since 1997, the partnership between OCEM, a manufacturer of machinery for cement tile production, and the Vietnamese company SECOIN has flourished into a remarkable example of enduring friendship and fruitful collaboration.
Founded in 1989, SECOIN stands as one of Vietnam’s pioneering limited companies, boasting 35 years of expertise in researching and manufacturing concrete building materials, with a special focus on high-end artistic cement tiles, pavers, and roof tiles. SECOIN introduced in Vietnam the concept of “terrazzo” tiles and they are so proud to have launched this word in Vietnam many years ago.


Recently, representatives from OCEM embarked on a visit to the Design Week in Milan, where SECOIN showcased its innovative products as exhibitors in this prestigious event. This gathering provided a perfect opportunity for both companies to reconnect, exchange ideas, and explore new avenues for collaboration amidst the vibrant atmosphere of design innovation.


During a pleasant lunch with Mrs. Hana and her husband, Mr. Ky, Chairman of SECOIN Group and Vice Chairman of Vietnam Association for Building Materials (VABM), who have been leading the SECOIN empire for several years now, we had the opportunity to exchange some ideas about the cement tile and terrazzo market, technological innovations, and market trends. Additionally, during the conversation, the need for SECOIN to have high-quality products available for their customers, such as large formats like 60×160 and 100×100 cm, also emerged.
In this regard, « the OCEM OPL 1500 press represents the state of the art in the world of large-format hydraulic presses. Capable of producing tiles up to 60×160 cm, it is currently the largest cement tile pressing machine in the world » said OCEM President and CEO, Eng. Ugo Giannelli.







The bond between OCEM and SECOIN transcends mere business relations; it is rooted in mutual respect, trust, and a shared commitment to excellence. Over the years, this partnership has flourished, driven by a common goal to push the boundaries of innovation in the cement tile production industry.
At the heart of this partnership lies a deep appreciation for each other’s expertise and unique contributions to the industry. OCEM’s state-of-the-art machinery and technical know-how complement SECOIN’s dedication to quality craftsmanship and innovative design, resulting in products that are both aesthetically stunning and technically superior.

The ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) mission of SECOIN is dedicated to pioneering the construction of a sustainable future through the production of environmentally friendly artistic building materials without firing. Their ESG mission is to minimize environmental impact, maximize social responsibility, and ensure adherence to modern, transparent, and efficient management principles, creating products using production processes that do not rely on fossil fuels, conserving agricultural land and water resources. By integrating ecological principles into every aspect of our operations, SECOIN aim to inspire positive change in the construction materials industry, promote the growth of green supply chains, and uphold ethical business standards in line with international norms.


Beyond business, the relationship between OCEM and SECOIN is characterized by a genuine sense of respect and mutual support. Whether collaborating on new product developments or navigating market fluctuations, both companies stand shoulder to shoulder, united in their pursuit of excellence.
As they continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the design industry, OCEM and SECOIN remain committed to fostering a partnership that transcends borders and cultures. Together, they are not only shaping the future of cement tile production but also paving the way for meaningful collaborations that enrich lives and inspire creativity around the world.


In an industry where partnerships come and go, the enduring friendship between OCEM and SECOIN stands as a testament to the power of collaboration, resilience, and shared vision. As they look ahead to the future, both companies are excited to continue their journey together, bringing innovative solutions and unparalleled craftsmanship to the global stage.
