Distribution of coal briquettes to needy families in Korea

On January 31, 2019, all employees from Korea Nitto Denko Co., Ltd. and Nitto Denko Nitoms Korea Co., Ltd. volunteered to deliver coal briquettes to families facing economic hardship. The donation of briquettes has continued each year since 2015 and this was the fifth time. The narrow roads crammed with aging houses and a terrain full of steep slopes makes it difficult for vehicles to transport the coal briquettes. Employees delivered 2,000 briquettes by carrying them on their backs.
