YMSA는 특수관계인 매출 비중이 98~99%를 차지하나, 이는 영원무역의 수출거래선을 위하여 새로운 원부자재를 개발,소싱하여 영원무역의 해외현지법인 공장에 직접 수출하는 것입니다. 더욱이 YMSA의 해외현지법인 공장앞 매출의 영업이익률은 현지법인 공장의 영업이익률보다 현저히 낮은 1~2% 이내로서, YMSA는 어떠한 부당한 이익도 제공받고 있지 않습니다.이 기사는 YMSA의 해외 관계법인매출은 현행 일감몰아주기 규제대상이 아님을 잘 알면서도 독자들로 하여금 일감몰아주기로 부당한 이익을 취하고 있는 것으로 오해를 불러 일으킬 수 있어, 이에 대한 사실관계를 알려드립니다.창사 이래 준법경영을 실천해 온 당사 및 관계사 일동은 향후에도 정도경영을 통해, 고객, 주주, 협력사 및 임직원 등 사회구성원 모두로부터 신뢰 받고 사랑 받는 기업이 되도록 더욱 노력하겠습니다.감사합니다.㈜영원무역

Iconic and visionary leader Kihak Sung’s dream project ‘KEPZ’Akhi Akter | Posted on June 29, 2021 2:02:53 pmSouth Korean firm Youngone Corporation started its journey in Bangladesh only with 250 workers back in 1980, now it has 70000 world-class workers. Currently, Youngone Group’s annual turnover is $2.3 billion, one-third of them comes from Bangladesh. Besides textiles, Youngone has other ventures as well. Korean Export Processing Zone (KEPZ) - the first and biggest private Export Processing Zone (EPZ) in Bangladesh, is growing fast with massive production activities contributing to socio-economic development.Youngone Corporation (owner of the KEPZ), is one of the country’s leading foreign private investors, was allocated 2492 acres of land for setting up the EPZ on the bank of the Karnaphuli under Paschim Patiya and Anowara Upazilas in Chittagong district back in 1999. However, the journey of investment began long ago. Figure 1: Youngone’s private Export Processing Zone (EPZ) ‘the Korean Export Processing Zone’ (KEPZ) in Bangladesh is the global standard of incorporating nature and state-of-the-art factories.Back in 1980, Kihak Sung, Chairman and Founder of Youngone Corporation set up a small factory with 250 female workers in Agrabad, Chattogram. It was the first foreign investor in the Bangladesh apparel industry, also one of the pioneers of women’s employment. Figure 2: Kihak Sung, Chairman and Founder of Youngone Corporation.Then in 1987, Youngone moved to Chattogram Export Processing Zone. During their first investment in Chittagong in the early 1980s, they imported raw fibers such as polyester for carding and processing, then filled them into nylon outerwear for export in volume to the Swedish markets.Figure 3: Ki Hak Sung has installed state-of-the-art machinery.In late ’80s, Youngone manufactured polyester padding for winter garments and supplying it to garment factories in Chattogram. That was one of the first manmade fiber (MMF) backward linkage industries in Bangladesh.By late 1990s, Youngone started supplying raw materials including nylon and polyester fabrics to apparel manufacturers as they had the complete structure of weaving, dyeing, and finishing factories in Bangladesh.Youngone set up the KEPZ under the Bangladesh Private EPZ Act 1996 and formed a company ‘Korean EPZ (KEPZ) Corporation (BD) Limited’ to promote, develop and manage the EPZ.Figure 4: KEPZ has so far completed 40 state-of-the-art green factories with a floor space of over 65,00,000 sft.After getting 2492 acres of barren land from the govt., Youngone has transformed the barren land into a world-class eco-friendly business park not only in the country but also in the region with the integration of economic activities, urbanization and environment-friendly measures.Figure 5: KEPZ is worker-oriented by providing a modern medical center, fully automated kitchen, canteen, child daycare center, indoor sports facilities and 3 dormitories accommodating 5400 female workers.They got Environment Clearance Certificate (ECC) from the Department of Environment (DoE) in November 2009 and now the KEPZ area is an ideal blend between nature and world-class environment-friendly factories.Among the total 2492 acres of land, 52% of the land has been re-forested. 2.5 million trees over four hundred species were growing over 822 acres of land. 470 acres are kept for open areas. 25 artificial lakes, which hold up to 500 million gallons of monsoon water annually.

KEPZ has so far completed 40 state of the art green factories with a floor space of over 65,00,000 sqft. Endeavors are also made to construct large factory buildings in the Textile zone having total floor space of about 2,000,000 sft, of which 60% have been completed and rest are in progress. These factories will mainly produce man-made fiber (MMF) products.”When fully completed, it would be one of the largest textile hubs in Bangladesh for the export and supply of high-quality fabrics to the local garment and apparel exporters as an import substitute and backward linkage.Korean EPZ started implementing a 40 MW rooftop solar power generation project. It is believed to be the largest single rooftop solar power project within the industry worldwide.Figure 7: KEPZ factories will mainly produce MMF-based garments.In the first stage, a 16MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant - which itself is the major ever rooftop solar PV system in Bangladesh to date - has been installed at the expense of $16 million and inaugurated 20 June.Work on a 4.3MW system that involves a cost of $4.3 million is expected to be complete by October this year, in the second phase.Figure 8: A 16MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant has been installed at the expense of $16 million.Additional 20MW system - to be set up as an Independent Power Plant (IPP) within a 12-month timeframe in phase-3 of the project - awaits approval from the government.Kihak Sung’s hard work and vision helped him build Youngone into an international giant in manufacturing investing over $1.2 billion.Most notably, Youngone has - in KEPZ - 25000 highly trained employees.

Yes, it is a tough job, as you need all the support, education system, R&D, know-how, etc.,” said Kihak Sung in a recent conversation with Textile Today.Figure 10: Textile Today team with Kihak Sung with his top management officers.KEPZ is not only bringing business to Bangladesh and contributing to the local employment, also setting a new and high standard of industrial development of Bangladesh.
