The History Of Kia Motors Video

Kia planned to eventually build a network along China's east coast. The Kia chaebol was selected by Park to concentrate on trucks and various industrial goods such as machine tools. It chose to limit the number of domestic vehicle producers to the five in operation at that time, and to freeze the particular areas of production. Kia claimed that products such as the Sephia were of comparable performance and quality to vehicles offered by other manufacturers, and Kia marketed them at a much lower cost. Since the mids, in particular, the government had been working to decentralize. During Park's second phase to , Kia increasingly developed its own parts using knowledge it gained from its outside suppliers. Kia's global strategy was multi-faceted. In addition, Hyundai pioneered Korea's car industry with production of the Pony, Korea's first completely domestic passenger car, in Hyundai led Kia in automobile production throughout the s and into the mids. The company sold its first truck in Kia grew quickly during the s and s through a combination of hard work and government assistance. His initial goal was to sell 30, to 50, units annually.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} In the late s the Chun government was voted out and replaced by a more liberal administration. Besides proliferating domestic competition, Kia also suffered during the late s and early s from labor problems. A major breakthrough for Kia occurred in , however, when it started shipping automobiles to the largest single international car market, the United States. Under the old school of thinking, providing good after-sales service was understood as the best remedy for compromised quality. Despite Korea's economic gains, Park's government had many enemies, and Park was assassinated in His successor, Chun Doo Hwan, was also a military leader. One development was its introduction of the Sephia, a compact four-door sedan, to the domestic market. Kia's arrangement with Ford reflected its strategy, first evident in the mids, to gradually assume Japan's role as the leading supplier of low-end economy cars. Park decided that the best way to develop South Korea's economy was to identify key industries and then select specific companies to serve those sectors. During the same year the country exported more than half a million automobiles, most of which were made by Hyundai and Kia. Kia's U. The company imported many of the parts used to build its trucks from foreign producers and assembled them locally. The savings were mirrored in cars like the Festiva, which enjoyed steady demand as a result of their extremely low prices. By the end of the war in , in fact, South Korea's industrial base lay in ruins. The government lifted some barriers in and , but imposed less obvious restrictions. The company started out as one of Korea's giant chaebols groups of companies , but was operating as an independent, publicly traded company in the early s. Kia planned to use its low-cost production advantages to fill the void. In , for instance, a total of foreign cars were sold in South Korea. Throughout the s and early s, Korea's recovery was slow. Importantly, though, his government was obsessed with economic growth and development. Kia increased production capacity from , in to , in and planned to boost that figure to 1. The introduction was well-timed because car sales in many regions were booming in The big draw for Kia products was the low price. Following a string of setbacks in the late s and early s, Kia experienced some major breakthroughs. Hyundai was ranked second, and its giant Hyundai Motors division eventually became one of the largest companies in the world. The Festiva was a "microcar" aimed at the low-end buyer. Until its merger with Hyundai in , Kia Motors Corporation was the second largest manufacturer of automobiles and trucks in South Korea. Kia started out producing steel tubing and bicycle parts before building its own line of bicycles in the s. Nevertheless, foreign producers made inroads in the South Korean market during the early s. Chun's overall economic strategy was generally successful, despite citizens' growing displeasure with South Korea's authoritative, centralized political and economic structure. By the late s, however, foreign governments were pressuring South Korea to open its markets. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Quality is our life. While Kia enjoyed a relative dearth of competition in its core domestic market, it also launched an aggressive and successful export campaign during the s that penetrated Japan and Europe, among other regions. Kia's greatest edge in comparison to U. It entered the world's largest potential market, the United States, in with the formation of subsidiary Kia Motors America. Kia reached an agreement to supply Ford with its Festiva model. By the time Kia entered the United States with its own nameplate in , it was already selling its cars in about 80 foreign countries and building a total of more than , cars annually. In addition to European and U. The Rhee Rhee Syngman government resorted to favoritism and corruption to maintain power and became increasingly authoritative. However, during the late s and s commercial expansion was effectively thwarted by the Korean War. Although that move represented new territory for the truck and tool manufacturer, another South Korean company--Hyundai--had preceded Kia's entry into the truck industry by about 15 years. Student revolts in the s forced Rhee Syngman into exile, and the ruling party that finally emerged from the ensuing political fray was headed by military leader Park Chung-hee. The labor uprising was actually just one part of a much larger movement begun in the s to dismantle South Korea's political and economic framework. More than a slogan it has become a way of life at Kia, a company which has been quick to embrace the need for quality improvement as a matter of corporate survival. The government would work with the companies, providing protection and financial assistance as part of a series of five-year national economic growth plans. Fed up with low pay and poor working conditions, South Korea's workers rebelled during the period. Today, product quality comes first above all else: It reaches all levels of the corporation. For the s, that scheme entailed Korea's transformation into an exporting, rather than importing, nation. During the s, Kia gradually weaned itself from extreme dependence on imports and started to develop proprietary technology that would eventually allow it to compete as an exporter of completed vehicles. Kia planned to ship about 70, units annually for Ford and a like number of the cars to other countries. Overseas producers had previously paid little attention to the restrictions because of the comparatively small size of the Korean market. Union strikes forced many companies, including Kia, to significantly raise wages. The success of the car was a great relief to Kia, which was simultaneously preparing to enter the U. His economic goals were similar to those articulated by Park, and he sustained Park's basic long-term economic plan. Kia's domestic car and truck business proved successful and allowed Kia to become the second largest domestic vehicle manufacturer and the tenth largest chaebol in the country by the s. The car quickly became the best selling automobile in South Korea. By the mids Kia was selling about , cars annually, still mostly in South Korea. By the early s Kia jettisoned its own chaebol structure and became an independent, publicly traded company, although it continued to benefit from government ties and protected domestic markets. However, the two companies did not directly compete in their home country because the government set car prices according to engine size. Park ruled Korea in characteristic military style. Heading that division was automotive industry veteran Gregory Warner. His regime during the s and s was marked by increasing centralization of power, both political and industrial. Indeed, until the late s Kia paid its workers a mere fraction of what their foreign counterparts earned. The inequity was undeniable. The company hoped to achieve unprecedented global growth during the mid- and lates. To that end, Chun's government continued to support chaebols like Hyundai and Kia while blocking foreign competitors from entering the South Korean market on a significant scale. By concentrating power in the hands of a few giant, family-held companies, Park reasoned, impediments to success would be minimized and cost-efficiencies would result. A key dynamic influencing Kia's and South Korea's gains during the s and s was the chaebol a business group consisting of large companies that are owned or managed by relatives of one or two "royal" families. Over a period of about five years, Kia shipped , Festivas to Ford. The company would eventually succeed, first as a diversified manufacturer of bicycles and industrial products, and later as a manufacturer of trucks and automobiles. In addition to its low labor costs, Kia continued to benefit throughout the s from rigid trade barriers imposed by its home country. Privatization and increased competition ensued. In the Chun government decided that South Korea's automobile industry was growing too quickly. Kia bet heavily on its ability to market its Sephia and another new model, the Sportage, in international markets. However, the Asian financial crisis forced Kia into receivership, until Hyundai bailed it out in , obtaining 51 percent share of ownership. So while Park was widely criticized for his authoritarian style, his government is credited with laying the foundation for South Korea's economic renaissance. Thus only three companies, including Kia, were allowed to manufacture cars, and only Kia was allowed to build lightweight trucks. Between and , during the first of Park's five-year plans for the Korean vehicle industry, Kia acted much like an import processor. Warner planned to bring Kia into the U. Even achieving the highest standards of after-sales service requires systematic quality management activities at all levels, whether at the product or personal service level. Partly in preparation for that project, Kia invested heavily during the early s to vastly expand its production capacity. By the mids, in fact, it was clear to Kia executives that Japan was reducing its emphasis on low-priced cars and focusing on higher-priced, high-profit vehicles. A corollary of that effort was the diminished dominance of the chaebols. It eventually parlayed that know-how into its own line of motorcycles, and later turned to truck production. Kia was protected by the Motor Vehicle Industry Protection Law of , which forbade the importation of already-assembled vehicles or major components. Kia Motors benefitted from the economic revolution, growing from a small bicycle manufacturer to a global supplier of automobiles. Rival Hyundai had also observed the trend, as evidenced by its jump into the North American car market.
