This new building is designed based on the integrated R&D center that gathers all research organizations of each company including JW Pharmaceutical as well as the group’s headquarters.

This is the 7th R&D center project order obtained by CJ Logistics E&C Division. Starting with CJ CheilJedang’s integrated food and bio R&D center CJ Blossom Park located in Gwanggyo, Suwon (Gyeonggi-do) in 2015, the company has received orders to construct R&D centers of many Korean and global companies, such as Descente’s R&D center, Kolmar Korea’s general technical institute in Naegok, Toray Korea’s R&D center, Samsung SDI research center, and Samjin Pharmaceutical’s central research institute, all adding up to the total ground area of approximately 280,000 ㎡.
