Hyundai Rotem is a South Korean heavy machinery manufacturer. The company is best known as a rolling stock supplier for railways.
The company was founded in 1979. In 1999, the company changed its name as Korea Rolling Stock Corporation (KOROS), the result of merger between then three major rolling stock divisions of Hanjin Heavy Industries, Daewoo Heavy Industries and Hyundai Precision & Industries. The company subsequently changed its name to Railroading Technology System, or Rotem, on 1 January 2002. It adopted its current name in December 2007 to reflect its current owner.
