About us


At the core of technological innovation,
SK hynix will lead the future of ICT

Welcome to our website! I am Seok-hee Lee, CEO of SK hynix.

Since 1983, when SK hynix was founded as Hyundai Electronics, we have ventured through numerous changes and crises, thereby transforming the company into a leading global semiconductor manufacturer. Based on technological innovations, we are now striving for our vision of becoming the “world’s best semiconductor manufacturer”.

“Technology” is the foundation of social change and a critical determinant of the direction of such change. As an essential element of technology, semiconductors have risen as both the driver and beneficiary of the ICT industry. In order to respond to the rapidly-changing ICT industry and growing uncertainties, we at SK hynix are committed to closely examining the increasingly complex and diverse needs of our customers and providing advanced solutions to the market. Stepping up from a traditional supplier to a value-creating partner, we will further expand our customer relationships by overcoming technological limits to secure higher performance and collaborating on next-generation products.

Furthermore, as members of SK Group, we will lead positive change for society and humanity by pursuing the double bottom line (DBL), seeking to create both economic value and social value. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all stakeholders, including our shareholders and business partners, the government, and the local community, for believing in SK hynix and continuously supporting us. We will always remember the love and support from you throughout our endeavor to exceed your expectations and to make SK hynix a company worthy of pride.

Thank you.
