Gumi National Industrial Complex Emerging as an Innovative Cutting-edge Industrial Complex
As the nation’s biggest inland industrial complex, the five complexes of the Gumi National Industrial Complex is leading the growth of future industries including electronics, semiconductors, IT and new materials.In particular, Korea’s major semiconductor leaders and businesses in the secondary cell materials and equipment industries are investing in the Complex, triggered by the emergence of the stable supply of semiconductors as a major issue.

Having acquired Dupont’s SiC wafer business, SK Siltron plans to establish a SiC wafer manufacturing line in the Gumi 2 Plant by investing KRW 190 billion by 2024, in line with the company SK Siltron ambition of rising as the world’s second largest supplier of SiS wafers. As the first non-memory semiconductor manufacturer that started operating in the Gumi National Industrial Complex in 1969, KEC also plans to invest KRW 20 billion to upgrade its manufacturing facilities, thereby contributing to the stable supply of semiconductors.

The Gumi National Industrial Complex through constant investment is expected to serve a leading role as a major semiconductor base. The effort will also ensure Gumi’s growth as the center of the K-semiconductor industry and innovative cutting-edge industries.
