(Seoul = Yonhap Infomax) Reporter Kim Gyeong-rim = Samsung Electronics Chairman Lee Jae-yong visited the Samsung Electro-Mechanics factory in Tianjin, China, inspected the electronic parts production plant, and held a meeting with local executives and related employees.

According to Samsung Electronics on the 26th, Chairman Lee Jae-yong inspected the Samsung Electro-Mechanics Tianjin Multilayer Ceramic Capacitor (MLCC) production line on the 24th and encouraged field workers.

Chairman Lee Jae-yong visited China again in three years after visiting Samsung Electronics’ Xi’an semiconductor factory in Shaanxi, China in May 2020.

The Tianjin Samsung Electro-Mechanics factory, which Chairman Lee visited, is one of the main production centers supplying MLCC for IT and electric vehicles to the global market along with the Busan plant.

Samsung Electro-Mechanics has been developing and manufacturing MLCCs since 1988, and built Tianjin Plant 2 in 2018 to respond to the rapidly growing MLCC market for electric vehicles and self-driving technologies.

Previously, Chairman Lee Jae-yong visited the Busan factory of Samsung Electro-Mechanics in 2020 and 2022 to inspect the MLCC production site and ordered active responses to preempt future markets such as MLCC for electric vehicles.

Samsung is cultivating Busan as a ‘high-tech MLCC specialist field’ which leads the research, development and production of core materials for MLCC, while operating Tianjin as the main production base for MLCC for electric vehicles.

Before the factory visit, Chairman Lee Jae-yong met with expatriates from Samsung Electronics, Samsung Display, Samsung Electro-Mechanics, and Samsung SDI in Tianjin and heads of Chinese corporations to listen to and encourage their difficulties in working abroad.

In recent years, in a situation where human and material exchanges between China and Korea have been restricted due to the new coronavirus infection pandemic (Corona 19), expatriates and executives in China, including Tianjin, have focused on reducing disruptions in the supply chain.
