Hyundai Heavy Industries Group Sends Aid to Philippines Typhoon Victims
Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, Hyundai Construction Equipment’s parent company, recently made a donation of $200,000 via the Korean Red Cross in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, which caused catastrophic damage to the Philippines. The company also dispatched a 21-ton class excavator, a backhoe loader, and experienced operators to the area to assist in recovery efforts. “We express our deep condolences to the victims of the typhoon,” states Mr. Lee Jai-Seong, Hyundai Heavy’s President and CEO. “We will provide as much assistance as we can in order to help the victims reclaim their normal lives.”
