A Culture Beyond Manhole

Starting with vacuum pumps and automobile parts in 1999, Kinam Metal has been leading the new evolution of manholes with the advanced casting techniques of World-Class. System process management strives to produce the highest quality manhole to customers, leading to changes in root industries such as the adoption of the AUTO molding line process and the introduction of CNC and MCT for the first time in the industry. It is also pioneering a new manhole market by creating high-quality manholes for the city-conceived, such as harmonic manhole and color manhole, based on its differentiated design capabilities.

Urban design, which makes city residents and visitors more convenient when they are traveling or traveling around the city, leads to the city's competitiveness. Kinam Metal is positioning itself as the market leader in design manholes that reveal the symbolism of the city through manholes and prevent any disorganization with its surroundings.

In addition, by advancing beyond the domestic market overseas, announces the excellence of Korean manhole every year and presents the future direction of the casting industry as a market leader through steady export performance. I received ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, CE certification, BSEN 124 TEST, GOOD DESIGN (GD), Seoul's best public design, excellent product, procurement office, etc.

We will move forward from the traditional foundry industry image and mind represented by the chimney industry to become a manufacturing service industry and create a culture beyond manhole.

Thank you.
