Boasting the largest West Seoul RMC plant, Eugene Corp. & Tongyang Inc. have built a RMC distribution network throughout the country and is at the forefront of the RMC market based on eco-friendly products, advanced equipment, and a thorough quality management system.
Eugene Corp. is leading the way in RMC technologies by intensively investEugene’s RMC business has been focusing on the evelopment of eco-friendly products, becoming the first in the industry to acquire “the certification of Low Carbon Products” in 2018. It is leading the way in RMC technologies by making continuous investments to secure the best technologies in special concrete such as low-heat/high-strength concrete. Its 46 RMC plants, 220 sales representatives, and 1,500 vehicles enable it to provide high-quality services to its customers.
In addition, it has introduced its own facilities and product quality management system (EURAS) in RMC plants to supply high-quality RMC to customers regardless of time and space.

Eugene Corp. is practicing its “Quality First” policy by developing and producing eco-friendly and high-quality products, thereby promoting harmony between nature and humans. It has been concentrating on the development of eco-friendly technologies ahead of other companies in the field of ASCON products, with its securing of technologies for producing ASCON with higher durability and “mid-temperature ASCON” receiving much attention as a solution for eco-friendly pavement. Meanwhile, it produces high-quality ASCON by storing aggregates in a separate storage (silo) to maintain a consistent particle size and to prevent other aggregates in different sizes or foreign substances from entering. It is also equipped with a temporary storage facility to timely respond to small delivery requests.
Mobile-based order-management/sales system (M-EUSALES)
M-EUSALES allows for external access to the system, enabling employees to handle the entire sales-related process, including receiving and placing orders, selling and shipping products, and collecting payments, in an environment that is identical to that of an offline office.
The production cost and quality of RMC and ASCON heavily depend on the quality and supply of aggregates, which are the main material. Eugene operates the Paju Quarrying Complex (production capacity: 23 million m³) and a sand pier (production CPAP: 250 m³/year), which contribute to the stabilization of aggregate supply in the metropolitan area suffering from chronic aggregate shortage. Moreover, Eugene guarantees a stable supply of aggregates in Chungcheong Province and southern regions through the operation of the Gongju Quarrying Complex (production capacity: 14 million m³) and the Sejong Crusher (yearly production: 360 thousand m³), and serves as the growth engine for the construction material industry.
