Samsung C&T Corp. Trading & Investment Group
Samsung C&T is a global trading company that engages in commodities trading and project organizing mostly in the fields of chemicals, steel, energy and materials.
Samsung C&T was established in 1938 as Samsung Trading Company, which later became the originating company of Samsung Group. Upholding founder Lee Byung-chul’s philosophy of “Business Patriotism,” Samsung C&T launched its overseas trading business in the 1950s, and was designated as Korea’s first general trading company in 1975. For over eight decades, Samsung C&T has spearheaded the growth of the Korean economy through its global operations, witnessing the ups and downs of the nation’s tumultuous period of modernization.
Samsung C&T Trading and Investment Group has some 78 offices in 45 countries around the world. Leveraging this global network and expertise accumulated over many years, T&I Group continues to make tireless efforts to provide optimal solutions to its customers.
We are also fulfilling our duties as a responsible corporate citizen by engaging in activities to care for needy residents in local communities, provide history education programs to children from multicultural families, and upgrading the educational environment in low-income countries, among others.
We at Samsung C&T will continue to take on our role as a global value-creating company that contributes to the lasting success of our customers.
Expressing our appreciation for supporting us over the past 80 years, we ask for your continued interest in Samsung C&T in its journey of becoming a global value creator.
