NEW THINKING, NEW POSSIBILITIES
A global network of research and development facilities. Over 4,000 researchers, four international centres to co-ordinate international activities and the world's biggest assembly plant. Put it all together and you have the largest integrated car manufacturing facility on earth.
It all started with just one man, a small repair shop and an insistence on delivering quality that still endures today.
This is the story of Chung Ju-Yung. Born the son of a peasant farmer, Mr Ju-Yung launched Hyundai in 1947 at the age of 32. At first it was a small vehicle repair shop. Then it grew, and became the Hyundai Auto Service Centre. 20 years later, Hyundai vehicle assembly was born. The Pony hatchback soon followed, and today, Hyundai is the fifth largest car manufacturer in the world.
