First of all, I would like to thank all of our customers for your love and support.
For the past 50 years, Aju has been working hard to contribute to our nation's growth based on our founding philosophy 'pioneer spirit.' In pioneering new paths and bringing winning results, our goal has always been achieving sustainable growth while making our customers happy who has given us continuous trust and loyalty.
As a result, Aju expanded its business from its initial start in construction materials, into distribution of automobiles, hotels, real estate development and natural resources, and it is continuing its expansion efforts to enter into another great 50 years.
In 2010, Aju declared its new vision of ‘Global Leader Bringing Innovation for Happier Future,' and with the ultimate goal of giving happiness for all stakeholders, we have selected talent, respect, innovation, passion and growth as our core values. Keeping these values close to our heart, we will continue to put our best efforts to grow as a respectable organization.
We believe that a corporation can achieve continuous growth only when customers are fully satisfied, and that customers are satisfied only when employees are satisfied. This is the key to the virtuous cycle of happiness that we emphasize at Aju. In the same sense, our growth during the past half-century has been a great joy and a great gift given to us by our customers and employees.
Aju will continue to do its best to build dream and vision together with our customers to achieve successful 100 years and more, and I would like to kindly ask for your continued love and support
