Since Samsung SDI’s establishment in 1970, SDI has continued to strive towards a creative and innovative future. With continuous efforts, Samsung SDI has been creating innovative products with cutting-edge technology that is being experienced by users today.
Historically, Samsung SDI has been in the center of Korea’s display business for the past forty years. SDI started and expanded the business from vacuum/picture cathode ray tubes to today’s leading LCD, PDP, and AMOLED TV’s. Moreover, Samsung SDI pioneered the development and research for the display business market when Korea was falling behind in resources, infrastructure, and technology innovation in the electronics industry.
Since 2000, Samsung SDI started to develop lithium ion battery (LIB) technology as a venture division and through hard work and determination, attained the global #1 Position in a very short period of time. LIB business became a successor to SDI’s already striving Display business. Through these sectors, Samsung SDI’s flagship business has grown into the strong and solid business it is today. Overtime, SDI’s core business model and infrastructure shifted from display industry to renewable energy and SDI continues to be acknowledged worldwide as a pioneer to Korea’s new energy commerce.
The next Generation of Lithium Ion technology is underway and is rapidly expanding at Samsung SDI from sole involvement in digital mobile devices to Electric Vehicles and ESS(Energy Storage Systems).
By taking over the promising Photovoltaic business from Samsung Electronics, Samsung SDI is devoted to creating customer value through synergy with SDI’s existing battery business. Also, Samsung SDI is working not only to employ research and development of new and creative products & technologies, but also to pioneer a new market sector with our passion and enthusiasm.
Samsung SDI takes pride in being the first Korean company to introduce sustainability management, which we believe is one of the key concepts of management enterprise. Additionally, SDI will continue to work to achieve our promise and goal of being a trustable and loving enterprise through continued maintenance of duty and responsibility. With significant efforts, I’m proud to inform you that Samsung SDI has been selected by DJSI (Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes) for seven consecutive years, a first ever achievement in Korea.
Looking ahead, Samsung SDI’s goal is to be a first-class company that is beneficial and open-minded towards everyone’s needs; our customers, shareholders, partners, and employees. Furthermore, we will continue to work towards our vision of becoming a distinguished company that not only satisfies the needs of our customers, but a company that is proudly acknowledged by societies throughout the world. Samsung SDI is a pioneer who will lead the future industry of new energy businesses based on rechargeable battery solutions. To preserve and maintain the great reputation built over the past 40 years, Samsung SDI will continue to strive towards future success.
