Coway is ...
We always make a healthy life with new ideas
Now more than half the households of Korea and the people around the world always drink clean water, enjoy a healthy and pleasant life with the air purifier and bidet, and have a comfortable sleep on the bed mattress. All these sounded like a dream just 20 years ago, however, we have made them part of the daily life. The water purifier was once seen as a luxury because it was not a household product like the refrigerator and TV. That is why we started renting the expensive product for a small fee for the first time in the industry to enable many people to drink clean water. We recognized that our customers want their products to be kept clean. So we adopted Cody service, our service professionals, for the first time again in the industry.
Always with new ideas, insights into people and the customers who recognize our sincerity, we have become No. 1 company in the industry and ranked 1st in brand awareness and market capitalization growth rate* in the Republic of Korea. We are rewarded with what we have achieved. However that is not enough to keep our heart beating. Does good technology make you healthy? Can what we do now make your family happy for a long time? This is why we care about invisible values. We do care about the essence of water and air, not the water purifier and air cleaner. We know best water and air, and we can provide care. We believe that making people healthy is what we can do best, so we challenge the world today with our sincerity.
