As Korea’s first modern company with a history of 117 years, Doosan has gone through many changes. Especially in the last ten years, we have shown the unprecedented and resolute pursuit of innovation and rapid adaptation, resulting in remarkable growth. Doosan’s business focus is now shifted to a global ISB (Infrastructure Support Business), and we are now a global company with more than 43,000 employees working in 38 countries over the world. In short, Doosan is the oldest yet fastest changing company in Korea.
All these developments have been made possible thanks to Doosan’s people. Our people enable us to realize our dreams and are our biggest asset. Achieving both differentiated competitiveness and sustainable growth depend on our people. Doosan’s management philosophy, which is a people-oriented philosophy based on open communication and a fair and warm harmony, is the source of our global competitiveness and the driving force of our “2G Strategy” of establishing a virtuous cycle where the “growth of people results in the growth of business” and vice versa.
Doosan has maintained steady growth based on its solid business portfolio and a stable and transparent financial structure. Doosan will keep enhancing its fundamental competencies by working towards constant innovation and the acquisition of core technologies so that we can take a step towards yet another leap forward.
Doosan people are equipped with ever-evolving standards and wise persistence to mobilize all available resources should the need arise. Doosan’s people-oriented philosophy towards a “caring group of people with strength” will lead the company to an even brighter future.
Doosan will continue making its best efforts to maximize values for its shareholders. Our governance has never been more stable and transparent since our conversion into a holding company. The management system, based on the board of directors, has been consolidated for all affiliates as well as for the corporate headquarters. Being a full-fledged holding company, Doosan is accelerating its growth strategy with the focus on core businesses that will enhance our profitability and growth potential.
At this very moment, Doosan people all around the world are doing their utmost to maximize corporate values and deliver customer satisfaction with the slogan of “A Proud Global Doosan!” engraved upon their hearts. Working at a company with more than a century behind it, all of us serve as a role model to fulfill its social responsibilities in an active manner with historic awareness.
Doosan owes its dramatic growth to the unrelenting trust and support of its shareholders and customers. We will never stop doing our very best to repay that trust and support and to be “A Proud Global Doosan”, always keeping in mind our deep sense of commitment to our shareholders, customers, and society.
Thank you very much.
Chairman and CEO of Doosan Group
