Dong-A Pharmaceutical


In continuation of our founding spirit,
We uphold and practice Jeong-Do Management.

Overview Jeong-Do (鼎道經營) Management,
Dong-A Pharmaceutical's founding spirit

Dong-A Socio Group's Jeong-Do management has redefined the term. Instead of the commonly used character "ethical (正),"" Dong-A has chosen ""cauldron (鼎)" symbolizing the unique founding spirit crafted by the late Chairman Kang Joong-Hee. This distinctive symbol embodies the group's distinctive approach to management. Dong-A Pharmaceutical will remain dedicated to leading socially responsible management, diligently adhering to the founding spirit and management philosophy encapsulated in Jeong-Do Management.
