Type of Manufacturers

Subcontractors
Most of big groups like Hyundai, Samsung and LG depend largely on their subcontractors. To survive in the international market, these big groups demand higher quality and innovation from their subcontractors.

Meanwhile, the unjust practices of these big groups towards subcontractors became a social issue. Therefore, the Fair Trade Commission (FTC) reinforces the inspection on the unfair subcontract transactions and orders corrective measures to defray unpaid subcontract payments, etc.
