Battery maker Samsung SDI will be focusing on safety moving forward
The Korean battery manufacturer plans to expand investment in safety, and also review and overhaul its designs, manufacturing methods and organization.
“A competitive edge in products comes from fundamental competitiveness in terms of development, manufacturing, quality and cost,” Cho explained. Said competitive edge will be improved by Samsung SDI by developing materials, building up standard development process and strengthening the capacity of the company's various branches outside of South Korea.
Samsung SDI was accused of being the main reason for the Note 7 fiasco from last year, despite the fact that there were no extensive investigations at the time. And while we wait for Samsung to let us know if SDI was to blame or not, we can't help but admire the company's ability to keep its head high and work towards improving its products and regaining consumer trust.
