Wonkang completes Egyptian port expansion project

Two ports using excavation equipment, such as BC cutters

Company "Requests from other companies for quality recognition"

The Busan-based venture company, WonKang, led by Kang Tae-young, announced on the 31st that they have successfully completed expansion projects at two ports in Egypt.

The company specializes in manufacturing foundation construction equipment parts and consumables using ultra-hard alloys. They primarily produce parts for BC32, BC35, and BC40 equipment and supply items such as BC Cutter Teeth, BCF9, BCF10 gearboxes, mud pumps, and cutting wheels for excavation equipment.

WonKang completed projects related to the expansion of Damieta Port and Ain Sokhna Port, both of which are construction projects for the Egyptian construction company Akirordon. They received recognition for the superior quality of their products.

WonKang's CEO, Kang Tae-young, stated, "Our BC Cutters were used in both projects. A variety of products, including BC Cutters, BC Teeth, gearboxes, mud pumps, and cutting wheels, were employed." He also mentioned that they have received cooperation requests from other Egyptian construction companies as a result of these projects.

WonKang, along with its sister companies Wonkang Tungsten, and YUJIN Construction Machinery, produces foundation construction equipment parts and supplies them domestically and internationally. Their products have been validated for performance at more than 450 construction sites worldwide.

Recently, they were selected as a demand company by the Construction Technology Research Institute and developed a "Rock Roadheader Pick Cutter" capable of crushing rocks with a strength of over 100 MPa. They are currently conducting various tests in collaboration with the National Pukyong University's Energy Support Engineering department. This product is expected to offer superior cost-effectiveness compared to expensive imported alternatives.

CEO Kang stated, "We will continue to develop and supply products that meet customer demands. We have already expanded to 15 countries, including the Middle East, and plan to further expand our market by competing with European companies."
