Director Kim said, "Dyeon Korea is currently aiming at the sales of 800 tons on a monthly basis. The China market and the India market are taking more than 120 tons of our raw materials per month, so I think our annual sales revenue could exceed even 50 billion won soon."
"Hmm, that sounds about right."
"Once our yearly sales revenue exceeds 50 billion won, Mr. Adam Caster said that he would be promoted from a manager to a director with his head office, as a vice president of the overseas joint venture. That's why he is in a good mood right now."
"Haha, is that so? I wonder what position Mr. President Richard Amiel in Japan is holding."
Interpreter Myeong-Joon Chae interpreted what Gun-Ho said for Mr. Adam Castler, and he interpreted Mr. Adam Castler's response.
"Dyeon Japan's presidentMr. Richard Amielis a managing director according to Mr. Adam Castler. That joint venture's sales revenue is now exceeding 100 million dollars."
"Hmm, I see. Please tell Mr. Adam Castler that Dyeon Korea that he is in charge of will soon generate 100 million dollars as well. I'm positive."
After hearing what the interpreter said, Mr. Adam Castler looked excited, and he grabbed Gun-Ho's hand and shook it.
After Mr. Adam Castler and his interpreter left the office, Gun-Ho asked Director Kim, "Do you think we will really soon be selling 800 tons of materials per month? According to the recent report that I received, our current sales is 750 tons."
"Our monthly sales was 600 tons before GH Mobile increased their orders with us because of A Electronics' product orders. Now, we are selling 750 tons per month including the increased product orders of 150 ton for GH Mobile."
"That I already know."
"I have the list of A Electronics' vendor companies, and I am working on making business with them. Several of them are interested in working with us, and I've sent our product test result to four companies so far. If we successfully start having business with these four companies, we can increase our sales by 50 tons without a problem. That will make our total monthly sales 800 tons."
"Hmm, I see."
"Also, Dingding in China will soon achieve their monthly sales of 90 tons. She is working hard to bring business from Chinese companies there. Our sales company in India is also doing well even though it just started the business. It's currently selling 70 tons per month. Our presence in India hasn't been widely known yet in the industry, so I told Mr. Manager Lee there to actively participate in any meeting or event for Korean people there."
"That's good. So, we are selling a total of 160 tons abroad if we combine the sales to China and India."
"Hmm, I guess we can anticipate reaching 54 billion won for our annual sales revenue next year."
"That's right, sir."
"It would be a matter of time for Mr. Adam Castler to be promoted to a director with the head office."
"I think so. That's why he looks so happy, and he is constantly humming in a good mood."
"Haha. If he is promoted to a director with Lymondell Dyeon which is a global company, his salary will be increased substantially, I guess."
"I suppose so, sir. Also, he is thinking of marrying that native English teacher."
"The thing is that the native English teacher is a Mexican American, and Mr. Adam Castler's parents are not approving of him marrying her because of that."
"That sort of thing happens in the U.S. too, huh? If someone is a Mexican or Brazilian descent, he or she would be Hispanic. Don't they look like Americans?"
"Many American families are conservative, and many of them want their child to marry someone who grew up in an American family."
"Hmm, I see."
"Well, they both are grown-ups. If they want to marry each other firmly, I don't think his parents can prevent it from happening."
"Hmm, well, we will see."
Gun-Ho felt confident about GH Mobile's and Dyeon Korea's business and operation since those two companies had highly competent executive officers who had been in the industry for more than twenty years. Moreover, the workers in the research center and the production centers were reliable and responsible people as well.
Gun-Ho wanted to stop by the production site to encourage the workers before he left for the day. When he arrived at the production site, mid-level managers, who recognized Gun-Ho, came to him quickly to greet him. Manger Hee-Yeol Yoo also came to Gun-Ho when he was informed that Gun-Ho was at the production site.
"Sir, you are here."
"We are getting a high volume of order from GH Mobile that is now manufacturing A Electronics' products right now, aren't we?"
"Yes, sir. Our machines from no. 1 to no. 16 are fully working right now."
"Do we need to work overnight?"
"No, sir. We have enough workers and machines to handle the current production level."
"Mr. Director Kim told me that we are producing high-quality materials without any defect because of youMr. Plant Manager Hee-Yeol Yoo. Our factory has a good reputation for it."
"Thank you, sir."
Manager Yoo scratched the back of his head in embarrassment.
Gun-Ho continued to say, "Our production process is running smoothly, especially because our plant manager oversees both the production site and the compound room. Thank you for your excellent work, Mr. Plant Manager Yoo."
"Thank you for recognizing my work, sir."
At that moment, the team lead at the maintenance team was passing by the production site, and when he saw Gun-Ho, he quickly came to him and gave him a 90-degree bow.
"How is your work, Mr. Team Lead?"
"It's going well, sir. Mr. Plant Manager set us a good work environment where we can focus on our work."
"We now have 16 machines in place, which are fully working right now. You know that we are relying on you about the machines' maintenance, right? I do thank you for your great work."
"Thank you, sir. I'm still learning from GH Mobile's Director Jong-Suk Park."
"I believe you are older and have more work experience than Director Park, aren't you?"
"I am better than him on working with a lathe or a milling machine, but Mr. Director Park is way better than me with handling an extruding machine. He is also excellent with an electric motor and arc welding as well."
"Well, Director Park seems to have a different opinion. He told me that Mr. Team Lead at the maintenance team is an amazing engineer who can handle any sorts of machines, and he said that's maybe because he has extensive work experience in the field."
"I guess that Mr. Director park is a humble man who is reluctant to brag about his skills."
"I understand that Dyeon Korea has recently been experiencing an acute increase in the product order, and we have hired many production workers accordingly. And, we might have to hire more workers soon. But, I don't worry about the production site here because I have you peopleMr. Plant Manager and Mr. Maintenance Team Lead. Keep up the good work."
"Thank you, sir. We will do our best."
Plant Manager Hee-Yeol Yoo and the maintenance team's lead gave a bow to Gun-Ho respectfully.
The two workers at the production site seemed to be in a good mood after Gun-Ho's visit at the site. They now knew that the owner president highly recognized their ability at work. There was currently no other engineer above them at the company, so they thought that they would be promoted higher and higher when the time came.
It was Tuesday.
Gun-Ho went to work at GH Building in Sinsa Town.
Gun-Ho went up to the rooftop before going to his office. Jae-Sik Moon's wife was cleaning the book caf.
"Good morning. How are you?"
Jae-Sik's wife lifted her head to see the visitor, and she greeted Gun-Ho showing her respect.
"Oh, hi. How have you been, sir?"
Gun-Ho said, "I went to Antang City last week and met President Moon there. He looked healthy."
"Thank you, Mr. President Goo."
"The bus service's business license has been already issued, so once the bus lines are determined, he will start the bus business. He is staying in a hotel right now, but he will soon find a condo there. He said he is looking for a condo that is about 30 pyung large."
When Gun-Ho mentioned the size of the condo which would be about 30 pyung large, a faint smile appeared on Jae-Sik Moon's wife's face.
