  • Information
    Pohang steel mill was created in the early 1980s at Yeongilman Bay with a view of breaking away from the agriculture-centered industry of the 1960s and launching the area into the heavy chemical industry. The construction of the steel mill lasted from 1970 to 1981. At the POSCO History Center, visitors can learn how the steel mill operates and how POSCO emerged as one of the most competitive companies in the world within just three decades. The bus tour of the steel mill has become a popular tour course for business travelers.
