South Korea has had a long and illustrious history when it comes to manufacturing. The country is famous for transforming itself from one of the world’s poorest countries to a high-income, developed country in a timespan of just one generation after the 1980s. Much of this incredible growth can be attributed to the country’s rigorous education system, highly motivated populace and favourable government policy directives. The industries that spurred South Korea to its present situation primarily involve manufacturers from different areas including automobiles, shipbuilding, construction, mining and tools. Once a major recipient of financial aid, South Korea is now the first such nation to have gained a status of a major donor of monetary assistance to other countries. It is presently the 7th largest importer and 7th largest exporter in the world. It is Asia’s 4th largest economy and the world’s 11th largest economy. For a country with few natural resources, the metamorphosis from a primarily agriculture based economy to a hardware-manufacture based economy is nothing short of astonishing
Shinhung, a company that was established in 1955, aptly demonstrates the Korean sentiments for dedication, hard work, innovation thorough rigorous research and unrelenting focus on quality. Reflecting the passion for metals and alloys, Shinhung celebrated the 50th anniversary of their dental alloy “Goldenian” in 2005. It was the first Korean dental company to go public and has its presence in Asia, Europe, Australia and the Americas.

Shinhung has two manufacturing facilities in Ansan and Wonju, Korea that make a wide range of dental products including dental operatories & cabinets, dental chairs, compressors, dental x-ray machines & related products, autoclaves, disposable needles, dental alloys and dental implants.
