Molex Korea, an affiliate of Molex LLC, a worldwide manufacturer of electronic solutions in Lisle, has been awarded the Environment and Safety Innovation Award by Samsung.
Molex Korea is the only interconnect supplier to earn this prestigious award in Samsung's 5th annual Global EHS Innovation Competition.
"It is an honor to be recognized by Samsung for our innovative improvements designed to promote environmental excellence," said JaeHoon Lee, senior vice president and president of commercial and consumer solutions, Molex.
