Hyundai Heavy Industries

Thanks again for the arrangement set by the Presidential Council of National Branding, Korea that i manage to visit the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in Ulsan, a city some 4 hrs from Seoul.
On a small and quiet fishing village, HHI built the world's largest shipyard in 1972. Since then, HHI rose to the position of world's top shipbuilder and turned Korea into the world's leading shipbuilding company. The accumulated technology in shipbuilding had been utilized to diversify HHI's business activities into other industries fields: Offshore & Engineering, Industrial Plant & Engineering, Engine & Machinery, Electro-electric Systems, and Constrcution equipment.

The story of the HHI founder, late Chung Ju Yung (Ansan) was a story of a dedicated young man who devoted his entire life to promoting industry and to making his country prosperous for its citizens. "There are no failures, only trials', the quote from this respectful man had planted deep in my heart...certainly a pioneering spirit and passionate determination can overcome theoretical or scientific limitations.
