Construction underway on new Hyundai reliability assessment centre

HYUNDAI Construction Equipment (HCE) has started construction of its new reliability assessment centre in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do, South-Korea.

The manufacturer said the move was designed to ‘strengthen its quality competitiveness’.

A groundbreaking ceremony has already taken place for the construction of the reliability assessment centre and performance evaluation laboratory for finished equipment. The facility will be situated on a total land area of 40,000 m² at Mabuk-ri Research Institute.

The multi-million pound project is intended to expand the operation of the evaluation laboratory previously operated in Ulsan to the reliability assessment centre.

The centre will be equipped with a laboratory capable of checking the performance of equipment in extreme environments from -40°C to 80°C.

Kim Gwang-min, vice president of the reliability assessment centre at HCE said, “When the centre is completed, the preliminary verification from hydraulic and mechanical parts to finished products will be strengthened, and the quality competitiveness of finished equipment will be greatly improved. As trust and loyalty to our brand increases, it is expected that global market penetration will be further accelerated.”
