Founded in 1953, the SK Group has led the recovery and growth of the Korean economy after the war that left Korea in ruins. Starting the business in textile, SK became the first company to export fiber in 1958 and was the first producer of basic polyester thread in the country. In 1973, it established Sunkyoung Petroleum and later merged with the privatized Korean Petroleum Public Corporation. In 1983, Sunkyoung Petroleum started developing overseas oil fields, which made the company the leading company in the energy industry of Korea. In the following year, the SK Group expanded into the telecommunication industry with SK Telecom. In 1996, SK Telecom became the first mobile network operator in the world to commercialize CDMA technology. By implementing the latest technology in internet and telecommunications, SK Telecom has not only been the dominant leader of the mobile industry of Korea with more than 50% of market share, but also has driven digital convergence by branching out into different fields including e-commerce. In addition to its two main anchors (energy & chemical and information & technology), the SK Group also operates in the marketing & logistics and semi-conductor & materials industry.
