We are engaged in the global trading of chemical fibers and yarn produced in China and Asia.
Copper and metals
We are trading various minerals, including copper, gold, silver, and platinum, and expanding into core future industrial materials, such as cobalt and nickel.
Based on our strong capabilities in design, development, purchasing, and distribution, we are engaged in the trading of products of Samsung Electronics and ITFIT, a mobile accessory brand of Samsung.

Samsung C&T promotes the growth of small and medium companies in the textile and fashion industries with promising futures by providing infrastructure for fashion businesses, including logistics, inventory management, and financing. We also import raw materials for textiles and yarn, and supply them to fabric companies or export them to third countries. In 2012, we laid the groundwork for business expansion by investing in a large spinning mill in China and securing approval to supply raw cotton and sell cotton yarn. Furthermore, to ensure a stable supply of fabric, we made an equity investment in a textile printing plant in Dong Nai, Vietnam, in 2007.
In 2011, we acquired a controlling stake in the plant, renaming it “S-print Inc.,” and commenced its operation, allowing us to lay a firm foundation for a stable fabric supply.
Samsung C&T began engaging in copper trading since 1981 and has secured stable supplies from Mongolia, the Americas (Canada, Mexico, Peru, and Chile), and Africa (Democratic Republic of the Congo), and has steadily explored markets in China, Korea, and Southeast Asia. We also actively trade gold, silver, platinum, and other precious metals.
Regarding rare metals, we are currently strengthening our trading of raw metal materials for rechargeable batteries as well as cobalt and nickel, the demand for which is expected to rise.
