HWACHEON – 60 Years of Tradition

Living history of Korea's machine tool industry.


Hwacheon is the living history of Korea's machine tool industry. With more than 60 years of building excellence, we have been leading Korea's machinery industry and supported the country's rapid industrialization.

Machine Tool Production

Since more than 60 years Hwacheon is manufacturing machine tools at top-level standards. Furthermore Hwacheon produces and markets engine blocks, cylinder heads, crankshafts and other engineering essentials. These automotive parts are being manufactured with Hwacheon’s own machine tools at the highest level of precision and quality.

The key components for our machine tools - including machine beds, spindles, gears, chucks, cylinders and curvic couplings - are manufactured inhouse with extra attention to their quality, as this is essential for the excellent performance and longevity of a machine tool.
