Samsung Electronics Store, Factory Shop and Offers
Samsung is a manufacturer of home electronics such as LCD, UHD and QLED televisions. Of course, the name is also synonymous with the popular Galaxy Android smartphones. The company is also involved in at least 8 other areas which are not known to the average customer in the streets. These include construction and financial services among others.
Established in 1938, Samsung is an old South Korean company that has taken over the world, from Europe to the USA, Asia to Africa, you will find the Samsung brand either in retail stores or factory shops.
Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul, a trader who started his business by running a grocery store selling fish and noodles. The Samsung Sanghoe store employed 40 people at the time. As the business grew, the founder ventured into other business opportunities, leading to a merger with other companies such as Hyosung. The Hyosung/Samsung merger did not last. In 1960, Lee became the sole shareholder of the Samsung Group once again, and this time he ventured into electronics. By 1980, the company began acquiring potential businesses to add to its portfolio. One of these was a Telecom hardware manufacturing company called HJT. The HJT factory evolved into a hub for producing mobile phones, so unbeknown to most people, Samsung has been producing mobile phones since the 1980s. They didn’t start producing mobile phones with the release of the Android mobile operating system. However, the worldwide explosion of their mobile phone business came with Android, which gave the iPhone a run for its money.
Lee passed away in 1987. The corporation was divided into four groups. Lee did not live to see the success of the company’s mobile phone business. In 2012, the company overtook Nokia as the world’s leading supplier of mobile phones. The corporation entered the smartphone / touchscreen race in 2013 by launching the Galaxy S4, establishing itself as a direct competitor to Apple and the iPhone. The company’s latest offering is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8. The modern Samsung Group has acquired at least 17 companies, which include among others SmartThings, YESCO Electronics, mSpot and NeuroLogica.
