Dongbu Electronics and Dongbu Hannong Chemicals to Join Forces

SEOUL, South Korea | Posted on February 20th, 2007

Founded in 1953, Dongbu Hannong Chemicals has achieved significant growth and strategic diversification over the years. Its recent diversification efforts, especially into electronic materials such as silicon and silicon manganese for semiconductor processing, has set the stage for the merger with Dongbu Electronics, Korea's leading wafer processing foundry, which was founded in 1997.

While technological synergies and operational efficiencies are expected to result from the merger, the top management teams of the two merged companies will continue in their current roles. According to Dong-Cheon Cha, who has been serving as president of Dongbu Hannong Chemicals, "Our operation has been especially active in developing both new and improved materials for bioengineering, nanotechnology and semiconductor processing. Our commitment to expand our business into these areas is just as strong as the commitment we have demonstrated in the past to successfully build strong market positions in agrochemicals, compound fertilizers and Ferro alloys."

Commenting on the merger, Young Hwan Oh, who has been serving as president of Dongbu Electronics, said, "We are confident that the merger of our foundry operations into the newly merged entity will enhance our capabilities to deliver best-in-class foundry specialty solutions with the highest quality for high-volume markets." He confirmed that the foundry team will work diligently toward realizing the synergies that can come from the merger while steadfastly maintaining a customer-first philosophy and a sharp focus on achieving high yields with continuous quality improvement.
