CEO Message

Since our etablishement in 1969, Kukdong Electric Wire has been contributing to the advancement of the cable industry whichis known as a key national industry. We are especially being recognized by our customers as leaders of the world market in electrical cables for shipboard and offshore.

We are also being appraised as outstanding in the quality and technology of our LAN cables for information telecommunications use. This has not been achieved in just a moment in time. It is a valuable accomplishment gained by ceaseless effort over the last 30 years with a creative and challenging mind. As a one global village through innovative developments in information telecommunications, we have welcomed the era of unlimited competition.
The fact that we cannot survive if we are not number 1 came to us as a clear reality. In the face of this reality, we merged with the Nexans Group of France in May 2003, the largest electrical cable group in the world through their participation in our stocks.

By introducing world standard development capability & quality together with management techniques from Nexans, Kukdong Electric Wire has started a challenge full of hope for our leap into the world market.
