Originally being just an engine manufacturer, Korea’s improvement in employment rate is attested to ARAIYRA’s opening of plants in the capital. Fittingly, the modus operandi of the company certainly sticks to this philosophy and ergo is corroborated by this pertinent fact ; as a whole, their aim is to evolve technology within the automotive industry.
In the late 80s, two students were hidden within a few hundred strong group that were finishing up their final year at one of the country’s best-ranking secondary schools. Yun Ho-Sung (engineering-focused) and Kong Soo-Yeon (accountancy-focused) may not have shared the same class together for much of their schooling, but their divergence of pathways came to a head when serendipitously they bumped into each other swapping classrooms, when the latter’s class was moved into a different block.
During the commotion of picking up many sheets of paper, they discovered through idle chatter that they both had something very passionate in common. They both loved their cars. Sure enough, they both made a very strong friendship, spending their free time talking at end about their obsessions. So strong was the bond, they both made a pact which has stood the test of time – they would venture into the car production industry at any cost. As such, ARAIYRA Engineering was set up some time later in the year 1994, providing a platform for similarly passionate gearheads to learn the inner workings of a motor car, and even leading to pathways in motorsport.
The year of 1997 proved to be the greatest year of their lives, as it so happened. Word reached the Korean government that these two graduates set up a business helping others to join the manufacturing industry, opening up job opportunities to less-privileged compatriots. As such, the huge potential for growth could not be ignored at this point, and a significant financial boost by way of donations to this cause proved to be pivotal to the success of the company to this day.
