Samsung Everland has evolved into a leader in Korea’s service industry by expanding its business sectors to resorts, food and beverage, etc.
In December 2013, Samsung Everland acquired the Fashion Business Group of Cheil Industries, the leading player in Korea's fashion industry since its foundation in 1954, and changed its name to Cheil Industries with a focus on designing lifestyle.
In September 2015, Cheil Industries merged Samsung C&T, a leading company in both construction and general trading industries, and changed the name to Samsung C&T. With expanded business sectors ranging from construction, trading to fashion and resort, Samsung C&T has set a new vision to become a 'Global Business Partner' and 'Lifestyle Innovator'.
