Early 2000s

A blossoming phasebolstered by foreigninvestment

With the investment from Thales, a European defense firm, back in 2000, the defense business of Samsung Electronics was spun off as Samsung Thales, a defense specialized joint venture. Using our access to high-end technologies and expertise/know-how as a springboard, we progressed and flourished to achieve our goal of becoming a true global leader in the digital world and also the world’s best defense business.
