It is no surprise with LED lighting demand on the rise that Samsung Electronics would want to begin strengthening their LED business. According to Business Korea, Samsung has begun recruiting LED professionals on December 1st both domestically and internationally.
This sudden move towards LEDs has sparked the industry’s interest. Samsung has begun to recruit professionals in a wide variety of fields ranging from technology, R&D, marketing, LED modules, and finished goods.
Although the company’s LED business was considered as one of five future growth engines for the company, due to business never fully prospering, a rumor sprung up around July that Samsung planned to sell 50 percent of the business to Japan’s Sumitomo Chemical.
The recruitment of LED professionals is being denied so far by Samsung, saying that “the recruitment in the LED business is made the same way as other lines of business.”
