Doosan Infracore’s 1937 Hall recently opened its doors on the second floor of the Global R&D Center of the Incheon Plant. The hall was designed to help build the groundwork for the future by reflecting on the pathways the company took and the achievements it has made since 1937. In its 272 square meters, the hall showcases documents, videos, photos and more for each time frame from Doosan Infracore’s establishment to the present.

Upon entering the Hall, photos from the company’s founding to the 1960s are exhibited on the theme of “the birth and modernization of Korea’s machinery industry” on one side of the wall. Papers related to Chosun Machine Works (The predecessor company of Doosan Infracore) and other various documents from the period are showcased right in front of the photos.
Another wall is dedicated to “design,” which marks the beginning and core of the machinery industry. There, visitors can see photos of the design room and hand-drawn drawings from the past as well as enjoy watching microfilm slides.
