Starting the development of wheel alignment systems

Samhong Engineering started out as a company that distributed and sold electronic equipment for automobile repair in 1992. The beginning of its business was marginal, but after having realized that domestic automobile repair devices were lagging behind so much that Korea had to depend on importation, the company started to develop wheel alignment systems domestically for any Korean to use.
Initially, Samhong Engineering went through a lot of trial and error, but it vigorously pursued quality improvement and product stabilization despite criticism from the domestic automobile repair equipment market, all the while developing wheel alignment systems for comfortable and stable driving, which also eventually prolongs the lifespan of tires.


Bringing the importance of wheel alignment systems for heavy duty trucks and buses into focus in the domestic market

Also, by starting to develop wheel alignment systems for heavy duty trucks and buses in 1999, for the first time in Korea, Samhong Engineering was able to bring the importance of wheel alignment systems for heavy duty trucks and buses into focus, even in the domestic market. With this, domestic automobile manufacturers began to replace imported wheel alignment systems with the company’s products, of which it is especially proud, because the company was able to prevent the outflow of foreign currency through localization and importation replacement effects.
