Samsung is the 2nd largest shipbuilder in the world
The Samsung Corporation has about 30-35 companies (yes, I should know the exact number, but call me a bad employee ;) We toured around Korea for about a week, meeting members of the different business units. They have a center for dogs to help handicapped people, a fashion line, an amusement park (which through some legal maneuvers may own the whole corporation), and a ship building facility that is pretty wild. The company controls 10-20% of the Korean economy. So pretty much if it exists in Korea, Samsung probably makes it or has a subsidiary that does.
