Town hall meeting with Mr. Gil-Soo Kim, President of DL Chemical

On June 20, PolyMirae invited Mr. Gil-Soo Kim, President of DL Chemical, a shareholder of PolyMirae, to hold a town hall meeting with PolyMirae employees on the topic of DL Chemical's POE success story and innovation in general.   PolyMirae has been inspired by what we have observed on our shared sites in Yeosu and indeed the speech of Mr. Kim has certainly inspired the PolyMirae team to continue and redouble our innovation efforts.

Mr. Kim acknowledged the exceptional track record of PolyMirae, so we should continue our proven success, and he offered some wonderful advice for our continued success in a changing and challenging market environment. 

Mr. Kim likened DL Chemical's recent success in developing POE to Chinese four-character idiom (교토삼굴, 狡兎三窟), It means that a smart rabbit digs three burrows.  It means that you prepare wisely and keep open and agile to new directions. Mr. Kim said that DL Chemical's success was achieved through the collaboration and efforts of all employees who are ever open to various directions and possibilities in response to the difficult market environment. He also told PolyMirae employees that the most important things for success in everything are;

  1. 格物致知(격물치지, Constant Learning): You should constantly explore and accumulate wisdom to understand the reason of things,
  2. 窮則通 (궁즉통, Constant Changes): In difficult situations, something can only be achieved through change.
  3. 不狂不及 (불광불급, Constant Commitment): If you are not committed to something, you can't accomplish anything,
  4. 協業 (협업, Collaboration): Collecting the wisdom of all employees through amicable relationships and collaboration. 

"Looking back on my experience, there was not a thing that I could achieve by just knowing the theory," Mr. Kim said, emphasizing that to succeed in everything, it is important for all employees to constantly study, change, and be engaged to drive the performance.

Mr. Mitchell Killeen, CEO of PolyMirae, thanked Mr. Kim and said that a key role as CEO of PolyMirae is to constantly work with both LyondellBasell and DL Chemical to derive the best outcomes for PMC and its customers.  PolyMirae is fortunate to have two such capable and inspiring shareholders and asked for the continued active support and cooperation of both for the sustainable growth and innovation of PolyMirae in the future.
