Ehwha Glotech succeeded in localizing Tenter through global partnerships
so we have geared up to advance into the global markets. To keep the momentum going,
we launched in-house R&D institute and moved production facilities into Dang-jin,
decision to become a global leader. In this regard, we are making remarkable rise
on the global stage as we expand our business arena further with the recent developments,
including TEXTINNO and INNOCESS.

Become a global leader

Our unmatched technical capability is recognized for the TEXTINNO developments, combined with 60 years-long experiences and cutting-edge automotive technologies. Also, in 2016, we became the first to develop the INNOCESS system in the world, making it possible for us to pioneer Industry 4.0, known as a next big thing among many textile machinery and industrial equipment manufacturers. Going forward, integrated with machines and IT and harmony with humanity, we will be able to lead the local markets and use our own technical capability to become a global leader in manufacturing and engineering industrial equipment in an effort to improve quality of people’s life.

Founded and successful localization

Desperately committed to creating home-made textile machinery products that would lead to the modernization of the country, we first founded a handicraft company and then successfully developed textile heat-processing technology in house (the very first tenter in Korea). At its infancy, we were able to continue to grow as we processed, manufactured and directly supplied to customers. Later, we sit in the Ban-wall Industrial complex and expanded production lines, a move that became a seed for further growth. Such technical breakthrough made it possible to boost the textile industry as an engine for the entire Korean economic growth when Korea was complete barren to the textile machinery industry.

1979 ~ 1957

  • Moved 2nd headquarters and production lines to the Ban-wall Industrial Complex

  • Renamed as Ehwha Machinery Manufactory
