On this day, Hyundai Elevator CEO Jae-Chun Cho announced the company's future vision for 2030 called 'Mobility To Possibility'. This reflects the will to find 'new possibilities' by applying the 4th industrial revolution technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), open API, and Internet of Things (IoT) to the elevator, which was considered a simple means of transportation.
As five strategic tasks for this purpose, △Increase customer value through digital transformation △Market leadership through innovative products △Aggressive expansion of overseas business △Expansion of service business portfolio △Advancement into new indoor mobility business. Based on this strategy, Hyundai Elevator has set the goal of ‘Triple 5’ by 2030: △ ‘5 trillion won in sales’ △ ‘50% of overseas business share’ △ ‘Global Top 5’.
The relocation of Hyundai Elevator's headquarters and factories is the first since its establishment in 1984. The Chungju Smart Campus, which will become a stepping stone for a new leap forward, is a complex space equipped with a headquarters, a smart factory equipped with a production, packaging, and shipping unification system on a site of 172,759 square meters, and various welfare facilities and dormitories for employees. In particular, the 4th industrial revolution technology such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), big data, and AI was introduced to smart factories, R&D centers and logistics centers, raising the automation rate to 78%. In addition, it is expected to increase cost competitiveness through the effect of improving annual production capacity by 25% (25,000 units) and per capita productivity by 38% (4.8 units → 6.6 units) compared to the existing plant. Hyundai Elevator plans to further expand its production capacity to 35,000 units per year by 2028.
In addition, Hyundai Elevator's smart campus was the first in Korea to apply a third-party PPA method to build an eco-friendly solar power generation facility with an annual capacity of 6 MW (megawatt). Converted to a four-person household, this is equivalent to one year of use for 2,062 households, and has the effect of planting 680,000 pine trees that are 30 years old. Thanks to this, we are one step closer to achieving the RE-100 in which global companies are participating.
Meanwhile, Hyundai Group Chairman Hyun Jeong-eun mentioned 'Haneuljae' of Woraksan Mountain in Chungju in his commemorative speech and said, "As Haneuljae is a geographical key linking Mungyeong and Chungju, it also has the meaning of linking the present and the future as one, so Hyundai Elevator resembles 'Haneuljae' and makes a simple movement. I hope that it will become a channel that goes beyond means to make future dreams a reality.” In addition, referring to the words of the late Hyundai Group Chairman Chung Mong-heon, “Only continuous innovation will prevent corporate regression,” he emphasized that “innovation is the only way for us to live.”
