According to SK news, Jin Kyo-won, who switched from chips to battery business, has worked for SK hynix for a long time. He has worked in various positions such as product and quality control, and has made SK hynix grow into a world-class enterprise.
Jin Kyo-won, who was transferred from memory chip giant SK Hynix to SK On and assumed the important position of COO, also shoulders a bigger mission. Foreign media mentioned in the report that SK On, which has been operating in many countries, plans to build more factories. Their goal is to increase the production capacity of batteries from the estimated 77 GWh this year to 500 GWh in 2030.
SK Hynix and SK On belong to the SK Group, and it is not surprising that executives flow between different companies within the SK Group.
