Mr S.G. Rhee, COO of Hyundai Heavy Industries’ construction equipment division, and Mr J.C. Jung, managing director of HHIE, recently welcomed VIP guests from the Belgian government and representatives from the local community to a groundbreaking ceremony.
Mr Rhee said: ‘We’re very happy to embark on our construction work. And we appreciate the community support for our endeavour and look forward to producing a state-of-the-art building. Our solid investment in this region to grow our facility is a condition for increasing our success in Europe.’

With the 81,000 square metres of new land, we can double the capacity of our machine parts supply, welcome our customers and intensify the commercial and technical training of our dealer network. The premises are ideally located alongside the E313 highway offering good accessibility. It all proves that HHIE is a dynamic and growing company and this investment will create additional jobs in the region.’
