SunStar Company, manufacturers of SWF embroidery machinery, has been acquired by Mobase Company, a main product supplier to Samsung.

Mr Byeeong-Jun, Son, chairman of both Mobase Company and Sunstar Company, commented: “Our company (Mobase Company) engages in engineering manufacturing with very strong business to business connections. Having companies based in Korea, Vietnam, Thailand and China employing more than 2000 staff we are very aware of global demand and being a supplier to Samsung means that we are at the forefront of new technology and manufacturing processes. We still, however, continue to look for new ways to expand our horizons and we saw a great opportunity with Sunstar Company which has been at the cutting edge of developments for many years in both the sewing and embroidery machine industries.

Mr Son added that the company is committed to continuing to support SunStar Company’s existing distribution network, which includes Your Embroidery Services (YES) in the UK. He continues: “We are already undertaking more product development to keep our customers at the forefront of embroidery technology for the years ahead… New model machines, offering advanced production facilities for the end user, will be launched within 2016.”

Roy and John Paul Burton, of YES met with Mr Son at the SWF assembly plant in Incheon Korea. “The production factory is a hot bed of activity and, although there had been many rumours about the SunStar SWF Company stopping production, quite the opposite is where the company is at. In fact, they are a vibrant team, committed to success and sailing full steam ahead to the future,” they commented.
