What kind of company is SAMWOOIMMERSION?
Samwoo Immersion is an 11-year-old company founded by me, an expert in the maritime field, in 2011. The beginning was to develop a simulator by combining the difficulties experienced while working in the maritime field with IT technology. As we started AR/VR development in 2016, we expanded our business not only to Heyang but also to all industrial fields. By expanding its scope to the establishment of education and training centers, it is positioning itself as a leading company in total IT solutions.
Even now, I am leading SAMWOOIMMERSION myself, and I have been invited to special lectures on IT manpower training and job training across the country, and I am also actively engaged in lecture activities.

As the name 'Samwoo (三友)' suggests, we aim to create common values by connecting the three points of customers, employees, and shareholders to balance each other. If you encourage employees to carry out their work with pride in their work and company, they will work diligently to provide true immersion to customers, and satisfied customers will return to Samwoo Immersion. will find It will soon lead to the company's profits (shareholder satisfaction).

It started as a software development business, but now it is being transformed into a manufacturer and is being reborn as a company that focuses on 'production' rather than 'development'. By grafting the contents that have been developed so far to the infrastructure called 'SWXR CAMPUS', it is possible to build the same campus anywhere in Korea as well as abroad, thereby promoting global sales expansion. Therefore, it is planned to operate one center for each sub-field of each industry. At the base of this goal, as always, there will be concerns to listen to and improve on the difficulties of industrial sites, and as our slogan, we plan to challenge without limiting our technology so that we can take a leap forward to 'crossing boundaries and into a new reality' every moment.
