The Korean tech giant Samsung is the name which we heard now in many devices used in the current era. It has become one of the world’s most well-known and successful technology companies and now we use the latest technologies using smartphones, tablets, and more.
Many of you thinking about that where is the origin of this big tech giant came from? Where did it all start for Samsung? So, here in this article we will check the core details of the company.
As per history, Samsung was founded in January of 1969, under the name Samsung Electric Industries, in South Korea. Its founder, Lee Byung-Chul, was a South Korean businessman. The company was part of the Samsung Group, which was generally known by South Koreans as a company specializing in the trade of fertilizers and sweeteners, a far cry from its current home in the technology industry.
Samsung Electric Industries started selling useful tech, such as fridges and calculators, upon its joint business venture with Sanyo, an electronics company originating in Japan in the 1940s.
Now taken as a next step Samsung Electric Industries goes for NEC, another Japanese tech company, in 1970. The two companies merged to become Samsung-NEC, which then became SDI.
The main agenda was to create home appliances and audio-visual devices. However, Samsung’s venture with Sanyo was still standing, and the two companies merged to create Samsung-Sanyo Parts in 1973.
Samsung started gaining its success and you will be glad to know that it sold over 1o million black-and-white televisions by 1981. The Samsung Group also expanded in 1974, taking interest in the semiconductor market. It did this by acquiring Korea Semiconductor, a company that was failing at the time and on the verge of filing for bankruptcy.
After this all steps, Samsung founded Samsung Data Systems, now known as Samsung SDS, in 1985, which served businesses’ ever-increasing requirements for systems developments.
You might feel unlucky that Samsung wasn’t always so successful in the smartphone field. In the 1980s, Samsung began to bring the smartphone industry and brought its own mobile phone to the South Korean public in 1988.
Due to the graph down Samsung with Motorola was already holding a 60% share in the Korean mobile phone market. At the time, Samsung only managed to secure itself a 10% hold. The time is so bad for the company because the quality of smartphones was not that impressive.
Samsung smartphone business was not in a good lane then Lee Kun-hee, chairman of Samsung Electric Industries, was the individual who pioneered this change. It was decided that the company would focus more on modern and up-and-coming tech.
After having a great experience in the cell phone market and strategy the Korean tech giant Samsung continued to grow and expand as a tech company, eventually passing its rival, Sony, to become the twentieth-largest consumer company in the world.
