Furthermore, Poongsan's management and employees shall not violate the relevant local laws or regulations governing corruption and business transactions.

For nearly half a century, his example has served our customers and stakeholders very well - and to be clear, that sterling example continues to light the way forward. Striving for the highest ethical standards, and compliance with same, is a key element of our competitive edge today and always.
