August 5, 2013
Samsung Electronics announced that it reached the accumulated production of 150 million refrigerator compressors—dubbed as the heart of refrigerator—in 37 years after it had first stared production in 1977. The core part plays the crucial role in compressing the coolant and producing cooling air. When all the compressors are lined in a row, the length is about 40 times the distance from Seoul to Busan—a phenomenal achievement that only a handful of professional manufacturers is able to reach.
