President & CEO

Dear shareholders and customers,

Since its foundation in 1970, Kumho Petrochemical has grown into a global petrochemical company by establishing a business portfolio that encompasses synthetic rubber, synthetic resin, specialty chemicals, carbon nanotubes(CNT), energy, and building materials—a result of our continued efforts to provide better future value.

The recent structural changes in the industry and emerging threats in the business environment have invited unprecedented challenges yet inspired innovation in the petrochemical industry.

In line with these changes, Kumho Petrochemical plans to become a “solution partner.” Beyond product and technology development, we aim to achieve the highest level in each of the business process, services, and human resources fields and provide optimal solutions to prioritize customer needs.

Our company will strive to improve the safety and environment of the organization and society as a whole. We aim to do so while securing growth engines by diversifying our portfolio with new types of businesses and building a structure for stable profitability, with the end goal of becoming a company trusted by all stakeholders.

Thank you.
