Through sustained efforts for increased corporate competitiveness
and technological innovation, Hanwha Corporation has
continued its growth into a global company with the world's leading
technological expertise and competitiveness.
Since its establishment in 1952 under the founding philosophy of 'contributing to the nation and society,' Hanwha Corporation has continued its growth over the last six decades, playing a crucial role in suppor- ting the nation's economic development during that time. With our forward-looking, bold restructuring endeavors to improve management efficiency, we have realigned our business operations to focus on the Global and Defense Division, and we completed our merger with Hanwha TechM (currently 'Hanwha Corporation/Momentum Division') on October 1, 2014. Based on our rich business experience, we have created new core technologies, sustaining market growth and expansion abroad. We will continue take one step after another on the path toward our goal of becoming a world-leading global company that promotes the development of humanity and advan- ces human values, embodying Hanwha's TRI-circle management values of trust, respect, and innovation.
