CLOSE TO THE CUSTOMER - ODU to expand market in Korea

Mühldorf am Inn,

As of January 1, 2019 ODU has established its newest ODU company in Korea. Kai Schneider is Managing Director of ODU Korea Inc. Together with the company's long-standing trading partners, his task is to further expand sales in Korea, to find new sales channels and to introduce ODU connector solutions into Korean medical technology and robotics. "Currently, we are strong in Korea, especially in the field of e-mobility and military technology. We also want to prove our know-how in new fields and applications," says Kai Schneider.

Schneider is a mechanical engineer and brings a lot of experience in mechanical engineering as well as knowledge of Korean culture. With its new company, ODU wants to be ready and personally accessible to its customers and partners. Kai Schneider will act as the interface between Korea and ODU in Mühldorf (Bavaria). "We also care about the geographical proximity to the customer. We already are present in Japan and China, and that has proven to be successful," says Denis Giba, ODU Managing Director. As a specialist in electrical connector systems, ODU develops solutions exactly to customers’ requirements and specifications. Via close cooperation with its customers, ODU creates technically and economically optimal connector systems that meet their needs. Korea is a high-tech country – the solutions developed there are used all over the world.
