Still, Kyung Boo holds a good position in the Korean market, as getting a new license to operate in the aggregates business is more difficult for new companies. “It is not easy to produce high-quality manufactured sand because it requires spending a lot of money on premium equipment. Kyung Boo has already invested in premium plants, while many other quarry operators have yet to do so. The company will likely grow its manufactured sand output to around 80% of its total annual material production,” Mr. Park says. Kyung Boo also plans to bring in more machines in the future. “I am contemplating the first, second, and third plants as well as trying to find ways to produce more sand. I believe we need more machines to achieve that,” Mr. Park plans.
