We extend our deepest condolences to the victims of the Hwaseong factory fire. To prevent such tragedies from recurring, Gyeonggi Province is committed to addressing industrial safety issues head-on.

On June 26th, Gyeonggi Province Governor Kim Dong-yeon met with Jennifer Scanlon, CEO of UL Solutions, a global leader in industrial safety.
Let's find out what was discussed during their meeting.
This meeting between Governor Kim Dong-yeon and UL Solutions marked their second encounter, following a visit to North America last May. During that trip, Governor Kim highlighted the critical importance of safety certification in the adoption of eco-friendly vehicles and actively worked to promote safety measures.

About UL Solutions
Founded in 1894, UL Solutions is the first organization in the United States to develop safety standards and certification. As a global leader in safety science, most of the standards created by UL Solutions are recognized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). UL certification is considered essential for exporting domestic products to North America.
Before his meeting with CEO Jennifer Scanlon, Governor Kim Dong-yeon apologized for wearing a black suit and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to hold this important discussion.

UL Solutions' decision to invest in South Korea will enable many South Korean companies to engage in fruitful collaboration with UL Solutions, helping them obtain essential safety certifications for their industries.

Additionally, Governor Kim emphasized that the recent Hwaseong factory fire underscores the need for thorough safety preparations to prevent such incidents in the future. He expressed that collaboration between UL Solutions and Gyeonggi Province would be invaluable in this effort.

In response, Jennifer Scanlon stated, "It is truly a tragic event. UL Solutions is committed to contributing its expertise to enhance safety management wherever possible." She further remarked that "collaborating to establish a safe and sustainable supply chain between companies in both countries is crucial," and that the Pyeongtaek investment is a highly anticipated development for UL Solutions.
UL Solutions' investment plan in South Korea involves the large-scale establishment of an advanced automotive and battery testing center. This center will focus on evaluating the performance, durability, and reliability of key electric vehicle components.

In particular, the facility will conduct fire safety assessments for batteries used in electric vehicles (EVs) and energy storage systems (ESS), enabling manufacturers to supply safer and more reliable products.

Based on the discussions about the establishment of this advanced automotive and battery safety testing center, we anticipate significant growth in industrial safety in Gyeonggi Province.

We also expect advancements in research and development, as well as increased exports for companies involved in electric vehicles. We appreciate your continued interest and support in these endeavors.
