CEO of G&I Tech

Since 2010, G&I TECH CO., LTD. has developed and manufactured various types of traffic-safety products and systems required for better safety on the roads — in particular protective LED markers for expressways crosswalks, bicycle paths, and so forth. We are now recognized as a leader in the field of innovative, eco-friendly solar LED traffic-safety studs.
I personally participated in the technology development based on my engineering experience in road transportation. After officially opening a research institute in 2017, we have been intensifying our R&D efforts with a team of highly experienced engineers.

Domestically, we have been delivering GIWICS to various road-related demand clients such as local governments, Korea Expressway Corporation, etc., receiving good approval ratings for the high quality of our products. Thus, GIWICS was chosen as a national innovative product in recognition of its superb performance. Currently, with GIWICS drawing keen attention from various sources, we are further expecting the demand for our GIWICS to steadily increase.

Which export markets are you currently focusing on, and what potential markets are you considering exploring in the future?
Starting with the first exports in 2014, we have been steadily exporting to more than 20 nations in Southeast Asia, Europe, the Middle East, etc. At present, we are launching various overseas promotion activities in accordance with the so-called “Living with COVID-19” – in order to advance into the major American and Japanese markets in earnest, which was delayed due to the occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please elaborate on your company’s growth goals for this year?
Amidst the traffic safety and environmental issues that are emerging around the world, we are intensifying our efforts this year with an aim to promote our latest new concept of road traffic safety system utilized with our own eco-friendly energy to both domestic and overseas markets through brisk promotion activities.
Although overseas business has slowed down and restrictions have been placed on advancing into overseas markets – caused by the unexpected pandemic since 2020 — we have achieved good export performance through steady indirect promotion activities (online, SNS, etc.). In preparation for the post-COVID-19 era and stabilization of markets, we are aiming to reinvigorate our efforts to launch more active promotions than ever before for advancing into overseas markets.
We are further making creative, sincere efforts in order to contribute not only to improving the safety of the nation’s road traffic environment, but also to global traffic safety – through ceaseless R&D investment based upon our eco-friendly solar technology with our own accumulated know-how. From now on, we plan to contribute to society with more advanced products and play a part in building the next-generation smart cities.
