Samsung brings offshore plant workers together pre-merger
Samsung Heavy Industries said yesterday it opened a new research and development center in Pangyo, southern Gyeonggi, to bring together staffers working on the offshore plant business in two separate places, in Seocho, southern Seoul, and Geoje, South Gyeongsang.
The company said the move was made to maximize the effectiveness of its merger with Samsung Engineering that is scheduled for December 1 and to improve the companies’ offshore plant technology developments. Six research labs are housed in a new 13-story R&D center that can accommodate 1,500 workers. The workers will start working there today.
