SJE Corporation(the new name for former Seong Jin Engineering Co.), the Optima Steamer manufacturer and a distributor of pressure washers and cleaning equipment of 22 years, opened its second factory on October 22, 2011 in Jeonggwan, Busan, South Korea.
WIth the growing markets in the United States, Poland, Mexico, Canada, France and other nations around the world, the Company came to the decision to invest in building a larger and more automated facility in June 2010.
In March 2011, the construction of the new factory began with a breaking ground ceremony. With great anticipation, the new factory was completed in less than 6 months. The new factory property takes up about 2 acres of land and was built using green technology including green bricks and insulation materials. SJE was recognized as a “no pollution” generating business by the local government and in return qualifies for property and income tax credit for the next 5 years.
The new factory includes top notch recreational facilities for employees - basketball, volleyball, badminton courts, natural grass soccer field, a screen golf facility, a golf drive range, a karaoke room and 7 guest rooms with private bath.
A new conveyor production line has been added for more automation. Over 30% efficiency increase is expected with this new system. Production capacity will increase by 250% by end of 2012 and be able to accommodate 50-60 more employees to the assembly line. This new factory is providing more jobs and even more Optima Steamer units through out the world.
Mr. Homoog Yoo (CEO & President of SJE Corporation) closed the ceremony with these kind words."We were able to build this new facility thanks to our customers and distributors.

More than 500 guests, including representatives from Steamericas, Inc., the US subsidiary of SJE Corporation, and distributors from the United States, Canada, South Africa, Poland and Greece attended the opening ceremony. Due to rain, the ceremony took place inside the factory area, but it did not stop the guests from enjoying the opening celebration performances by a local orchestra.
