A South Korean company Samsung is one of the world’s largest producers of electronic devices. Samsung specializes in producing a wide variety of consumer and industry electronics, including appliances, digital media devices, semiconductors, memory chips, and integrated systems.
Samsung was founded as a grocery trading store on March 1, 1938, by Lee Byung-Chull. After the Korean War, Lee expanded his business into textiles and opened the largest woolen mill in Korea. During that period, his business benefited from the Korean government’s new policies, whose aim was to help expand the business financing. During the 1970s, the companygrew its textile-manufacturing processes to cover the full line of production.
Samsung first entered the electronics industry in 1969 with several electronics-focused divisions—their first products were black-and-white televisions. During the 1970s, the company began to export home electronics products overseas.
The late 1970s and the early ’80s witnessed the rapid expansion of Samsung’s technology businesses. Separate semiconductor and electronics branches were established, and in 1978 an aerospace division was created. Samsung Data Systems (now Samsung SDS) was established in 1985 to serve businesses’ growing need for systems development. That helped Samsung quickly become a leader in information technology services.
In the 1990s, Samsung continued its expansion into the global electronics markets. Despite its success, those years also brought about corporate scandals that afflicted the company, including multiple bribery cases and patent-infringement suits.
