Hancom Lifecare (CEO Woo Joon-seok), a subsidiary Hancom Inc., cooperate with KOTITI Testing Institute (Director Lee Sang-rak/hereinafter referred to as KOTITI) to jointly develop safety and protective materials and revitalize industries.

Hancom Lifecare and KOTITI Testing Research Institute signed a business agreement at KOTITI headquarters (based in Jungwon-gu, Seongnam) on the 14th with major officials including Woo Joon-seok, CEO of Hancom Lifecare, and Lee Sang-rak, director of KOTITI.

Hancom Lifecare and KOTITI are planning to research and develop materials for safety and protection and jointly promote commercialization to revitalize related industries. In particular, it is expected that the safety and reliability of the product will be further enhanced through professional quality inspection, analysis, evaluation, and technology exchange on masks, protective clothing, gloves, and safety shoes, including safety and protective materials.

KOTITI is a comprehensive test certification organization that provides research and development, test analysis, quality inspection, education training and consulting on consumer goods as well as textiles. The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety has designated it as a testing and inspection institution for drugs and other masks for licensing and quality control, and plans to provide test and analysis services for chemical protective clothing and infectious protective clothing from the second half of this year.

Lee Sang-rak, president of KOTITI, said, “We will play a leading role in the field of protective clothing testing, provide one-stop test analysis services for customer satisfaction, and establish a cooperative system to create synergy in various areas such as technical advice and seminars.”

“This agreement enables thorough quality verification and management of safety and protective materials and products that are important to prove safety,” said Woo Joon-seok, CEO of Hancom Lifecare. “We will contribute to revitalizing the domestic safety and protective material industry.”

On the other hand, Hancom Lifecare is Korea’s No. 1 personal safety equipment company, which was established in 1971 and supplies various kinds of safety equipment such as air respirators, gas masks, heatproof suits, fireproof suits, chemical protective suits, protective suits, industrial and health masks. Since it was incorporated into the Hancom Group in 2017, it has gradually expanded its business scope to not only military, fire, and industrial markets but also to life safety and smart city public safety based on the group’s ICT technology.
