A letter from Indonesia: POSCO Employee Launches New Career at 61

POSCO INSIDE

We often make excuses when we are not clear about making big decisions. One of the excuses is about our ‘age’. Even if a rare or special opportunity is given, a lot of people are hesitative, thinking that they are too old to take the chance. However, there is a POSCO member who is continuously challenging, regardless of his age, to start a new life. This is a letter from Suh Chang-yup, who has begun a new life in Indonesia in his sixties.

POSCO’s New Success Story: Integrated Steelworks in Indonesia

POSCO has started its construction of Krakatau POSCO, an integrated steelworks in Cilegon, Indonesia, from October 28, 2009. The first stage of the construction, targeting for 3 million tons of annual production, is scheduled to be completed by the end of December this year.

Krakatau POSCO, South East Asia’s first integrated steelworks, is a joint venture between POSCO and Indonesia’s state-run steelmaker Krakatau Steel. By utilizing POSCO’s extensive experiences from initiating the era of steel industry in Korea 40 years ago, and the know-hows of managing various overseas mills in China, Vietnam, and Mexico, POSCO will make a new success story in the land of opportunity, Indonesia.

Suh Chang-yup has been dispatched to the Coke Plant Construction team and he is now working as a technological consultant for the ‘coke oven part,’ the most important area of the construction.
