On November 27, 2009, it was announced to the public that Samsung Electronics bought 15.92% of Atech Solutions Co. The shares that were bought were said to cost about US$220 million (W263 billion).
Atech Solutions is a company that sells molding products that are placed on certain things of our everyday lives such as televisions, printers, and appliances. Before this deal was made, they were distributing their products to Samsung to be placed on their LED TVs. One of the reasons for this collaboration was that Atech Solutions had a specific design that they sold to Samsung. When this deal was made, Samsung Co.'s intention was to make a strong collaboration for the future.
Samsung Electronics has been investing in different areas of enterprises this year. Last month, Samsung Electronics invested in Nano Flash and SSD and other related products such as PCI Cards. The exact amount of money invested was not released, but it was rumored to be millions of dollars.
A representative for Samsung Electronics stated, "We have made many enterprise collaborations for investment this year, but those were not the first. We will gauge how certain products do in the market, and our plan is to continue to launch new technology and invest in certain enterprises."
