Our company directly produces LED packages and develops LED indoor and outdoor lighting, special lighting, and control system programs. Our company is a technology-intensive company that manufactures low-carbon-containing, eco-friendly LED lighting fixtures. We have continuously devoted ourselves to research and development in order to maximize energy efficiency based on our excellent technology from 2000 to the present. As a result, in May 2009, we obtained the first high-efficiency certification in Korea, and in November 2011, we obtained the green technology certification. In addition, in February 2012, we obtained the environmental label certification.
In addition, we developed a heat dissipation device for LED lighting with vegetable material (CMP-PLA) and obtained new technology (NET) certification in December 2014. With this certification, on November 11, 2015, we received the Prime Minister's Award in the commercialization of new technologies. We manufacture and sell ultra-lightweight/low-cost/environmentally friendly products that consider the environment and cost ahead of other LED lighting companies.
As a specialized LED lighting company, we are a luxury strong small and medium-sized company in Kwangju City, and since 2013, we have been steadily exporting automotive LED packages to the US more than 1 million dollars. In addition, by distributing LED lighting products to public institutions in Korea, we have secured product reliability such as quality reliability, price competitiveness, and delivery standards.
On August 12, 2015, we obtained Hyundai Motor Company's SQ certification (injection part). After that, from December 18, 2015, we are producing SMART CARD KEY for K7 (YGPE), K9 (RJ), and New Grandeur (IGPE) and supplying them to Alps Korea, our primary partner.
In addition, after signing an investment agreement with Korea Electric Power Corporation in March 2017, we completed the Naju Plant on November 2, 2018. Therefore, we have obtained direct production verification and qualifications for products other than watt-hour meters that can be delivered to KEPCO.
