Hyosung has launched an integrated production technology centre to strengthen quality management. The center oversees technical operations of Hyosung’s major processes and facilities in textile, advanced materials, chemical sectors. It consists of 26 key technology experts from Hyosung R&DB Labs, Hyosung TNC, Hyosung Advanced Materials, and Hyosung Chemical.

The centre aims at refining technology through collaboration with technology experts of main plants and Hyosung R&DB Labs in designing new processes and improving the existing production processes. The centre plans to strengthen its manpower by securing and training experts in the basic design of production processes and major facilities, said the company.

“We are not content with the idea that the world’s No 1 products mean the world’s No 1 technologies. We will achieve ‘technology convergence’ by adding technology to technology,” Hyosung Chairman Hyun-Joon Cho said. Hyosung holds 548 patents related to textiles, 708 patents related to advanced materials, and 1,037 patents related to the chemical at home and abroad. It seeks to create a synergy of its proprietary technologies. Nine Hyosung products are rated first-class in the world. Of them, spandex, polyester tire cord, and seat belt yarn are products for which Hyosung holds the largest share of the global market.
