Growing into a Leading Machinery Manufacturer in Korea

https://korean-machinery.com///inquiry[INQ. NO. 1705M19] Hwacheon Group is a 65-year-old Korean-leading provider of CNC, general-purpose machine tools, and automation equipment, with a strong commitment to high quality and technological excellence, as well as a corporate vision of “We Produce the World’s Best Products and Services.” The following is an interview with the Hwacheon Group’s CEO Kwon Young-ryual, where he talks about challenge motivation through the company’s growth process and current situation.

Could you please introduce the company and what are the driving forces of the company’s amazing growth?

The Hwacheon Group was founded in May 1952 by the late Mr. Kwon Seunggwan, under the name of Hwacheon Machine Tool Company. He started his job as a foundry apprentice when he was a teenager during the Japanese colonial period, in order to help support his family. He had full confidence in his honesty and outstanding skills he honed during the apprenticeship. He took over the foundry company in August 1945, and established Hwacheon Machine Tool Company based on the existing foundry in May 1952.
The name of Hwacheon was derived from two words, namely “Hwa,” which has the meaning of commodities or money, and “cheon,” which has the meaning of fountain, and together meaning “the fountain of wealth.” To sum up, Hwacheon started out in the machinery tool business, which had not been developed yet in the domestic market, with the vision of reviving the machinery industry and maintaining sustainable development of the industry. Since its establishment, Hwacheon Group has grown into a leading machinery manufacturer in South Korea. The company has achieved several significant milestones, which form an indelible part of the company’s history, such as the first belt-driven lathe that was invented in the late-1950s, followed by the first numerical control machine tool in 1977, which was submitted for International Manufacturing Technology Show in 1978 as a first overseas exhibit of Hwacheon. Hwacheon developed the first CNC milling machine in 1983, and the first machining center in 1987.

Currently, the Hwacheon Group consists of HWACHEON MACHINE TOOL CO., LTD., which produces the CNC machine tool and casting; HWACHEON MACHINERY CO., LTD., which produces the CNC, general-purpose machine tools, and automation components; SEOAM INDUSTRY CP., LTD., that produces chuck and gear; as well as TPS KOREA that specializes in producing automation equipment. The company is a first-class machinery manufacturer which has single-line production infrastructure and modernized production system. Based on technologies acquired through long-term experience, the company has continuously maintained growth in domestic markets, and now exports to industrialized countries, such as USA and Germany. Meanwhile, the products of the company have been acclaimed for their high precision and high rigidity. In addition, the company is engaged in producing and processing the major components of car engines, such as cylinder blocks, cylinder heads, and crankshafts by combining machine tool production technology.
I think our major competitive advantage is sincerity. Under the vision of emphasizing our motto, “We Produce the World’s Best Products and Services,” we always pursue “quality first” from customers’ perspectives, and offer products more than just technology. By doing this, a lot of researches, developments, and services are being carried out to deliver a value creation cycle for customers. Thus, we have been constantly engaged in research and development based on sincerity. As a result, we have become the leading machinery manufacturer in South Korea, which has the ability to compete with our global competitors. We have also established a good reputation compared with other companies, and that led us to win the majority of customers’ trust and loyalty. It is encouraging that there are lots of interests in our products despite the recent economic recession.
Hwacheon is not merely selling the equipment, but also providing total-solutions that aim to process and produce convergent products, which improves user’s internal quality- and cost- competitiveness. In particular, HWACHEON MACHINERY CO., LTD. has developed machine tools equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) since five years ago. At first, AI was used only for some products, but now the AI software has been introduced into general machine tools as well. We are presenting the smarter machinery tools in exhibitions every year.

It has been building its reputation as the industry-leading company with major products of each business, such as hanger supports, expansion joints, intercooler and crossover for its plant base materials, bridge bearings and bio-gas plants.
The following is a one-on-one interview with CEO of UNISON eTech, Koo Bon-kwang, which will reveal many interesting insights into how the company emerged as a leader of the domestic industry.

Please tell us about your company and its main growth engines

UNISON eTech has been able to secure core technology and the best quality in plant business that produces piping support products, construction parts that deal with vibration isolation, and control products in preparation for earthquakes and the renewable energy business.
I believe our growth engines depends on stability and release of our products with various specifi cations that buyers and clients require through business partnerships with domestic and international businesses.

 

Tell us about your main products

Our main products include bridge expansion joints, piping supports that go into piping lines of plants, seismic restraints that improve safety against earthquakes and wind loads.
Our biggest advantage is the fact that the company provides customized products based on required specifi cations by clients, core technology and quality with various products portfolio.
Although our sales in the domestic market are stable, export performance is relatively low. To increase our exportation, our company is using online marketing and advertising. The domestic construction and plant industry has reached a mature level, so now is the time to change paradigms to vitalize the sluggish domestic construction and plant industry.

 

What about emerging markets and your main export markets?

Currently, UNISON eTech’s exports are limited to the USA and Japan. In future, however, we will expand our sales to Southeast Asia and Europe.
Especially, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the demand for natural gas is expected to grow more than 50% by 2035. Therefore, the infrastructure market for natural gas is expected to grow rapidly in North America and Africa. I believe this will present us with an opportunity to break through, instead of relying on the sluggish domestic construction and plant industry

What is your management philosophy as CEO?

I have only two things that I would like to mention. First, I would like to create an environment where employees can enjoy themselves working.
