As Korea’s first modern company with 121 years of history, Doosan has gone through many changes and significant growth over the years. Toward the end of the 1990s, however, we started to make bolder, innovative moves to completely reshape ourselves at an unprecedented rate, and have achieved remarkable growth. As a result, Doosan has established itself as a world-class infrastructure support business (ISB) provider, with about 40,000 employees in 38 countries.
Behind our great success is a venturesome, entrepreneurial spirit. This pioneering spirit that has driven us to journey into unknown territories remains deeply embedded in our DNA. For the past 121 years, Doosan has lived with great passion. Despite being the oldest company in Korea, our vibrant mindset keeps us young and unafraid of change.
Based on our solid business portfolio, Doosan has delivered robust and healthy growth. We keep a close watch on changing market trends to identify new growth engines. Furthermore, we are committed to achieving innovation and technology excellence, which will give us a strong competitive edge in the market and help us take our next great leap forward.
Doosan People impose no limits to our aspirations and possess true tenacity and drive, and therefore have the capability to utilize every available means to achieve our goals. Based on our people-oriented management philosophy, Doosan strives to become a “caring group of powerful people,” who will lead the way to a brighter future for the company.
Doosan’s focus on maximizing our shareholder value will remain firm. After switching to a holding company structure, Doosan has achieved greater transparency and stability in governance structure. We strive to establish a board-centric model of corporate governance throughout the entire corporation, including the holding company as well as all of its subsidiaries.
Even at this very moment, all of our employees from around the world do their utmost to maximize corporate value and deliver customer satisfaction, as we strive to become “Proud Global Doosan.” For a company with over 100 years of history, we also believe that it is our obligation to set good examples for others to follow and thereby have faithfully fulfilled our corporate social responsibilities.
We are here today thanks to the confidence and trust our shareholders and customers have in us. Our objective is to become a company that every shareholder and customer can be proud of. That is a commitment we solemnly pledge to all of you.
Chairman and CEO of Doosan Group
