Around 2003 we chose Nahtrang as a name for a new adventure that we were starting. At that time, we never could have guessed that, this Vietnam city, would be the chat opener for many of our clients.
Now, ten years after, we still explain the origin of our name with the same emotion than then, starting each new project with that motivation.
