Yeosu / Seoul, 25th of September 2019
This September HEC-Holland team members made a tour with one of our valuable customers to Hanwha’s premises in South Korea. Main purpose of this trip was to further extend our collaboration with our partner. Additionaly we wanted to show our team members Hanwha’s newest expansion on production of crosslinkable polyethylene (XLPE) at their site in Yeosu -in the South of the Korean peninsula – where the ground-breaking ceremony took place.
We are pleased to see that due to this new fully automated production system our XLPE capacity will grow further and will be ready by 2021 ~ early 2022. Along with this expansion Hanwha also will invest into an own automated warehouse especially dedicated for its Wire and Cable products, which will be ready at the same time.
Furthermore has Hanwha Construction Corporation completed nearly the overhaul of Hanwha’s HQ building in downtown Seoul, where the building is ready for the 21st century. It has nice features such as solar panels, which are integrated in the exterior of the building – produced by Hanwha’s sister company Q-Cell.
Focus on Europe
The smooth transport of our valuable customers took place by Hanwha’s own helicopter service which was reserved for this memorable and special occasion. We as HEC-Holland are confident that our partner Hanwha Chemical is ready to further roll out its strategy to strengthen its presence within the Wire and Cable market with a specific focus towards Europe.
