New production site in Korea

Having opened their own sales office in Seoul 12 years ago and after acquiring a Korean company five years ago, Plansee is now further expanding its production capacity in Korea. Mid-March, 2016, saw the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of their own production facilities.

The new Plansee location is in Dongtan, in the direct vicinity of important key customers in Korea, and is due to start operation at the end of 2016. The existing Plansee production and sales locations in Korea are to be brought together under one roof.

"Above all, it is our customers in the display and semiconductor industries that will benefit from the increased capacity. The construction of our own facilities underscores our long-term commitment to Korea," says Bernhard Schretter, member of the Board of Directors of Plansee.
