For the Love of his Country
It all began with a patriotic love for his country. “I felt compelled to start a company since the Korean market heavily depended on imports for over 80% of automation industry parts at the time.” CEO of KCC Co., Ltd. Mr. Duk gyu Park rekindled his memories with a smile.
Since 1992, KCC started its success story. They localized many parts that were once imported such as pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, pneumatic solenoid valves, etc. They also developed and introduced new products. We can easily say that KCC found its true love for this industry, and has shared this passion worldwide.
He continued “4 years ago, our overseas marketing campaign was carefully planned. Since then, we have attended many different international exhibitions. In 2007, KCC landed in 20 major markets in Japan, the US, China, Turkey, etc. “
Pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders have been their main items since the company began. In 2005, KCC set up another factory in order to keep up with the localization and overseas demands. Its manufacturing line for Pneumatic Solenoid Valve is equipped with Automation Lines, Superior Manufacturing Lines, Test Facilities, etc.
The Automation Line is comprised of KCC’s own Multi-axis machine and others, which resulted in a 70% increase in working productivity per person. The Test Facility has a strict policy that guarantees a zero-fault rate for products.
Mr. Park says “quality is our priority, and its value is the most important aspect in this business. For this reason, KCC Korea for the first time, built its manufacturing line in a clean room. This is due to the delicate nature of their pneumatic and hydraulic parts, which are highly sensitive to dust particles. “
It’s not just all talk and no action when it comes to quality. KCC takes 10% out of their total sales revenue and allocates it to research and development every year. The company has gained various patents and certificates for their products including KOTRA’s Seal of Excellence, KIMM (Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials)’s “R” mark, ISO 9001 & ISO 14001, and more.
“Korea’s major corporations like POSCO, Hyundai Steel, and Samsung Electronics recognize our technology, and they are buying from us.” He explains. “We at KCC will never hesitate to invest in continuous growth, manpower, and installing top-notch facilities for technology development and world-class quality.” You can find more information at www.kccpr.com
