- POSCOM, a promising small and medium-sized company located in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do, with global competitiveness by exporting portable X-ray devices
- Donation of development funds to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the opening of Korea Aerospace University, a prestigious university in the local community... Plan to strengthen mutual cooperation such as internships and mentoring in the future
On the 10th, Park Jong-rae, CEO of Poscom, a company specializing in medical devices, donated 10 million won to the Korea Aerospace University (President Heo Hee-young).
Poscom Co., Ltd. is a small but strong company that exports portable X-ray devices to 45 countries around the world and possesses the world's best technology in related fields. As an export-oriented company that generates more than 70% of its sales in developed countries such as Europe, the United States, and Japan, it also has a local subsidiary in Indonesia. In the medical device market led by advanced countries, it has challenged the field of technology-intensive electronic medical devices, and has been evaluated to have raised the quality of a core component called an X-ray generator used for X-ray imaging to a higher level. In partnership with companies, it aggressively entered overseas markets.
The portable X-ray device developed by POSCOM is small and light in size, so it is easy to carry, has low radiation exposure, and allows you to check the AI reading results through a laptop right after taking pictures. For this reason, in developed countries such as Europe, the United States, and Japan, it is mainly used for military, mountain, emergency medical, animal treatment, etc. In particular, in the midst of the corona pandemic, it gained popularity by providing fast and accurate diagnostic images at screening clinics, mobile hospitals, and examination centers around the world, and on the contrary, sales surged. Thanks to this growth, POSCOM is building a Digital Health Care Center with the goal of completion early next year in the Osong Advanced Medical Complex, following the headquarters in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do and the factory in Paju-si, Gyeonggi-do. In addition, it is preparing to go public by acquiring a medical device system company to expand its business area.
CEO Park Jong-rae has been interested in and continuously contributing to the school's development since his first relationship with Korea Aerospace University as the second president of the CEO Academy of the Korea Aerospace University in 2011. He said, “I decided to donate to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Korea Aviation University, which is nurturing talented people who will lead the future industry in the same community, and to help the school even a little bit.” Hee-Young Heo, President of Korea Aerospace University, expressed his gratitude for this and said, “I will prepare various exchange and cooperation plans with POSCOM, such as student internships and startup mentoring.”
