Life @ Samsung Biologics

Driven. For A Better Tomorrow.

%BD%E6%B3%D7%C0%CFv2_EN.jpg
 

Ten years ago, we started with a singular vision: to enrich people’s lives through technology and innovation. Starting from the ground up, we owe our success to the people who put their passion into practice every day and strive to make an impact in the world by taking on new challenges. Because companies don’t define culture. People do.

In honor of our 10th Anniversary, we brought together two employees to reflect on their experiences, how far we’ve come as a company, and where they envision us going. One of those individuals is Byul Choi, a group leader for the Contract Group within the Alliance Management Team. Byul has been at Samsung Biologics since the beginning, and is now working closely with clients to negotiate and close contracts for our manufacturing and development services. New to Samsung Biologics is Yeonha Kim, a scientist in the Manufacturing Science and Technology DSP Group, who works on protocols and data verification.

Discover how these two employees bring their unique perspectives to the company, and what “Driven. For Life.” means to them at such a significant time.

 


How long have you worked at Samsung Biologics?
Byul: It’s been 9 years and 10 months. It will be my 10th anniversary in July.

 

Yeonha: I’ve worked at Samsung Biologics for three months! I’m a quite newbie here.

 

What makes Samsung Biologics’ culture unique?
Byul: So Samsung Biologics’ culture is unique in a way that the majority of the employees in our company are Korean [or locally hired] but we also have expats from outside of Korea, and blending the mixture of different cultures changes and impacts the way we work, the way we interact and communicate. So we try to find the best practice amongst all different cultures.


Yeonha: Since coming to the [Samsung] Group, I've never felt afraid to ask questions because the people who I’ve met here provide an environment where I can always ask and learn…So that really motivates me to do better and want to contribute more to the group.

 

Byul, please tell us about the moment when you first joined Samsung Biologics. What was it like?
Byul: I was first very happy to make it into Samsung because Samsung 10 years ago was very famous as the number one conglomerate in Korea…When I joined the company, there was absolutely nothing. Not even Plant 1, or even Songdo; the area was absolutely full of dirt and almost nothing… So from there up to where we are [now], it’s a great achievement. Not only from the plant construction perspective, but also from a business standpoint, we have grown and we’ve made a successful showing of our achievement…I think with our scale, with our business, and with our relationship with the clients, we’ve been very successful in helping biopharmaceutical companies to develop and manufacture their products…so that they can do the necessary work to get it to the patients.

 

What significant changes have you observed throughout the last 10 years?
Byul: Ten years ago working for the company, there was still a huge uncertainty. Now we have a very clear goal. We have a goal for our success in terms of revenue, business, portfolio - these targets are very specific. But back then, it was a huge blank. There was just so much potential, but at the same time, it was harder for us to define because this field [contract manufacturing in Korea] not many companies were trying it at the time…We lacked this track record, and we did not know what we should benchmark or reference. I think that’s the huge difference right now compared to 10 years ago.

 

This question is for Yeonha. As a new employee at Samsung Biologics, what was your first impression when you joined the company?
Yeonha: Actually my time at Samsung Biologics didn’t start this year. It was last summer when I was very lucky to be a part of the 2020 global interns…The people who I’ve met here, they are so welcoming and ready to answer my questions, and all of these things made me realize that this is the place where I can become and grow as an expert, a scientist, and also as an individual. After coming to the MSAT DSP Team, I realized that MSAT actually handles a lot of things…[Working for MSAT] you need to know how to plan and write documents…how to handle chemicals, and also know how to not only communicate with clients externally but also within the team internally.

 

Coming into the company at such a significant time, what are you most excited about?
Yeonha: I think this year is significant for Samsung Biologics in terms of its 10th year anniversary, and also during this COVID pandemic situation. Even though there are global uncertainties regarding the pandemic, Samsung Biologics has been great - we’re doing what we do - and I think this situation allows us to show what we’re good at. I’m excited to be part of this journey, and I’m happy that we’re taking responsibility for saving lives.

 

From each of your perspectives, after 10 years of building a better life for humanity, how do you feel Samsung Biologics will evolve in the future?
Byul: For the last 10 years, we’ve been helping people by producing [drugs] and making it easy for patients to access to those drugs…For the next 10 years, it can be an expansion of what we’ve been doing so far, but it could be a totally different area...Who knows! We could start something that no other CMO has tried before, or we could be somewhere beyond the manufacturing and having business in other value chains. I think we still have that potential to bring about the growth of the company, but also increase our contribution to humanity. I think the matter is how we’re going to be adapting it, how to use that potential in the place that we need it…We could go anywhere.

 

Yeonha: Since its establishment in 2011 with Plant 1, now we're under construction of Plant 4, which will be the highest figure [capacity] for a single bio-production plant in the whole world… It's an honor and I'm so proud that I can be a part of this journey and now that we're making history, I look forward to witnessing all the expansion that Samsung Biologics will take not just in Songdo but in the world.

 

When you hear "Driven. For Life." what comes to mind?
Byul: I think the slogan “Driven. For Life.” is more visionary and [refers] more towards the future of where we should be ultimately going. Manufacturing is just a part of the many value chains and many different areas where we can serve humanity…and ‘driven’ sort of embraces us within the circle of helping people to improve the quality and extend their life.

 

Yeonha: Better life comes from better health, and Samsung Biologics is driven for humanity’s better life, better health, and better well-being.
