Samsung C&T was established in 1938 as Samsung Sanghoe, which later became the mother company of Samsung Group that now stands proud as a global company. Samsung C&T was there together with Koreans throughout the ups and downs of the tumultuous modern Korean society. Samsung C&T pioneered to drive national economic growth by launching its overseas trading business in the 1950s, and emerged as the country’s top trader in 1975.

With its 79 years of global business experience and key competitiveness, Samsung C&T continuously pushes forward to become one of the top ten global players in two business areas: Trading of chemicals, steel, and energy and minerals, and organizing business such as plants and renewable energy.

Our 5,700 employees in 82 offices in 45 countries strive to provide optimal solutions to customers by leveraging our unique integrated corporate strength and excellent market intelligence.

We at Samsung C&T hope to contribute to raising Korean companies’ global standing, achieve shared growth with our customers and create new values.
