Since 1982, We used to be manufacturers of all kinds of hair goods as follows;
1. Wigs (machine made) - Fashion wigs, Carnival wigs
2. Men's hairpiece (hand-tied), lace full wigs for women
3. Human Hair in Bulk, or Weft for Braiding and Weaving
4. Hair pieces in H/hair, or Synthetic fiber in various styles or designs
5. Other kinds of hair goods
And, we imported and exported Cosmetics and Beauty Supplies.

Since 1990, because the labor cost or wage of each worker increased too much (US$50.00/month in 1984 to US$500.00/month in 1990) we have been changing our lines from SUPPLYING (EXPORTING) FINISHED HAIR GOODS(WIGS, TOUPEES, HUMAN HAIRPIECES (bulk hair, hair weft), HAIR EXTENSIONS, ETC to Wig materials, Wig equipment, Accessories, New and Novelty items requiring Technology and Engineering; and Consulting and Training Classes.

(Exporting wigs, toupees, hairpieces in large quantities from Korea was not possible because of the high production cost in Korea.)
1993, we set up a factory in China to keep exporting to the world (our regular customers/buyers).
The labor cost (worker's wage) was US$30.00/month in China.
At the same time we restructured (downsized) our production system to keep (run) a small factory for producing ONLY CUSTOM MADE toupees and wigs by hand for retail business in our domestic (Korean) market.

We started to train 300 people every month for 12 months, some thousands to work in our new toupee factory in China. Half of them were not good at the work and not employed.

We could have chance to provide technical training course (for machine made weft making) at the request of a person who entered the country as a member of the Mexican economic delegation in 1993. This could become the point of starting of providing hands-on-training course.
