Could you share a bit about your professional background and experiences, as well as what inspired you to establish K&K Pipe?

Despite having to work while still studying in high school due to my family's living conditions, I persevered and tried my hand at various businesses, including selling cookies and clothes. Eventually, I saw an opportunity in importing women's clothing from Thailand and China and decided to establish my own garment factory in Cambodia. Over the years, my factory has become well-known for producing high-quality clothing for various brands.

As a Cambodian, I am passionate about building quality brands in my country. That's why I decided to establish K&K Pipe Cambodia, a manufacturer of HDPE pipes that focuses on the highest quality standards. I believe that this business will contribute to improving the lives of Cambodians by providing access to clean water, especially since there are over 10 million people in Cambodia who still lack access to clean water. My inspiration for this business came from my experience working in the HDPE pipe manufacturing industry overseas. I saw that while the international standard for quality was high, the prices were often too steep for many customers. As a result, many people ended up using low-quality products. I am confident that I can create a high-quality product that is compliant with international standards while also being affordable for Cambodians.

Although the path to success can be challenging, I am confident that by maintaining these principles, I can achieve my goals. Ultimately, I believe that success is a culmination of hard work and dedication, and I am committed to continuing to push myself and my team to reach new heights.

I prioritize open communication, collaboration, and a positive work environment where everyone's ideas and contributions are valued.
