TYM TTI won the grand prize at the National Best Practices Competition for Business Training
TYM received the grand prize under the new technology training category at the 2021 National Best Practices Competition for Employer Vocational Competency Development Training. The event was held at the Ulsan Convention Center last September 16.
Celebrating the month of vocational competency development in September every year, the Korea Industrial Manpower Corporation holds a national competition for 18 companies (six each in large companies, small and medium-sized enterprises, and new technology training). These companies have won first place in regional competitions. For example, TYM, which won first place at the Gwangju regional competition in June, took home the grand prize in the new technology category of the national competition.
Seeing the rising demand in the market for agricultural machinery in the fourth industrial revolution in Korea, TYM developed training for highly skilled engineers for self-driving agricultural machinery maintenance technology. The award recognizes this technical training for its excellent design, operation, performance, and know-how in supporting professional technical personnel in the curriculum.
TYM plans to continue to produce a skilled workforce that can proactively respond to the changes in the agricultural machinery industry through continuing education and training in various fields, including smart agriculture. In addition, the plan is to increase investment in the field of education and training to realize customer satisfaction through supporting talent.
TYM CEO Kim Do-hoon said, "TYM always puts customers first and strives to satisfy the best customers. We will spare no money to support developing new technologies and fostering excellent professionals for agricultural development in the fourth industrial era."
In parallel, TYM has established its subsidiary TYM ICT to develop and mass-produce autonomous agricultural machinery. TYM ICT is also developing telematics-based autonomous agricultural machinery with the aim of commercialization in early 2022. In July, self-driving tractors produced by TYM’s technology have proven their excellence by taking home the record of having the highest level of precision in Korea.
