Since 1947 when Daesung Industrial Corporation was established
entirely with national capital, Daesung has made every effort to
develop energy sources that are a motive power and a basic resource
for the industrial society, and to provide the nation with energy for life.
Daesung has made its mark in the history of changes in the energy
industry, as well as in other areas throughout Korea . The conglomerate
started as a basic materials business in the 1970s; then it participated in
overseas projects, electronics & machinery projects, and city gas projects in the 1980s;
and participated in oil and gas field development projects in order to vertically systematize its energy projects in the 1990s, when it also expanded its business spheres to the construction, environment sectors.
Moreover, in 2000, Daesung launched its combined heat and power generation projects. Daesung has always led energy projects in Korea , it has closely followed the flow of the times, and achieved the diversification of its management and the expansion of its business projects. Now, Daesung is poised to grow into an international conglomerate and all its executives and 2,000 employees, including me, are working to advance into a more developed future.
In the last 50 years Daesung has consistently exercised sound business practices, which has made us the company we are today. In 2001 it announced its second foundation and published its ethical management guidelines in 2005, exerting itself to more closely serve its stockholders and customers as an enterprise that is trusted and loved by its own workers.
Daesung will continuously do its best to supply its patrons with real value and to bring happiness into their lives.
