“For continued growth, we must aspire to become a creative company capable of leading change. Erecting our R5 institute was one such chance for precipitating the change and advancement required for becoming a truly creative company,” said Shin Jong-kyun, Samsung Electronics mobile unit chief. His speech was on the day Samsung held a ceremony for marking the move into Samsung’s newest mobile research institute, the R5, in Suwon, home to the world’s largest consumer electronics company and chipmaker.
Industry watchers said both the speech and the ceremony signaled that mobile products and services would continue to be the nerve center for Samsung, which this month celebrated the 20th anniversary of the “New Management Initiative” by chairman Lee Kun-hee. Research and development is cited as one of the most significant driving engines behind Samsung’s growth into a global electronics powerhouse.
