Pacom’s History

2011_09Won Culture Award for development of printing culture on Printing Culture Day
  

2005_11Awarded 20 million Export Pagoda on Trade DayPacom’s history began from a small letterpress printing company, founded in 1917. Later, the company changed it’s name to Sung In Printing and was known as the “Korean military academy of printing”, leading the way for Korea’s printing industry.  In 1999 Korea was suffering from the IMF financial crisis.  It was at that time that the company made a new start as Pacom Korea.  The company advanced into the overseas markets for the first time and since, has won Tower of Export Award for the past 12 years.

These results achieved are based on the factors of having a long tradition and combining it with the best technology.  With that combination, Pacom will continue to develop into the world’s best general printing & publishing group with a mind and a sense of mission that it’s standards will keep it as a leader among the world’s printing markets.
