Yugu Factory

After a year of completion, the Yugu factory in Korea expanded and became the world’s largest consumer electronics manufacturing site in 1995. Soon after, the factory started manufacturing filters in 1997 with its high-tech Programmable Logic Controller-based automated facility that produces 1.44million water filtration devices annually.

"Coway is the largest indoor filter manufacturer not only in Korea, but the world."

With a building area of 1,2859.98sqm and a floor area of 20,450.79sqm, the factory is equipped with nine water filtration device lines, four air purifier lines, nine filter lines and a carbon block line with an annual production of over 20million filters, water filtration devices and air purifiers. (as of April 2016)

The factory then focused on the environment and consistency with the aim of achieving zero waste, defects and breakdowns with the introduction of a system that achieves zero-fault during production, an Environmental R&D Centre and Water Analysis & Research Centre (WARC). These introductions have significantly improved productivity and quality and at the same time, reduced costs.

"Every single product goes through vigorous testing over 1,000,000 times."
