(1) 1974~1988
DADA Corporation was started in 1974 when CEO Park Boo-Yl established Daedo Trading, which exports materials. He saw that importing, reprocessing, and exporting raw materials was a business without any roots, and envisioned production and exporting through his own means. I saw people walking around collecting hats and keeping them as cherished items. Immediately after returning to Seoul, Chairman Park quit the existing trading business and entered the hat manufacturing and export business with 5 sewing machines in a small factory in Sillim-dong, Seoul, Korea.
(2) 1989 ~ 1998
In the domestic market, which was tied to the textile quota, there was a limit to the number of hats that DADA Corporation could produce, so from 1989, we turned to overseas production and established production bases in Indonesia and Bangladesh. Established Indonesia (PT.DADA Indonesia) in 1989, Bangladesh (DADA Dhaka) in 1991, Bangladesh (DADA Savar) in 1993, and Bangladesh (Paxko) in 1997.
In addition, unlike other hat companies that printed the logo on the front of the hat with dye or subcontracted the sewing factory, we purchased 100 computer embroidery machines and embroidered the logo in house. DADA Corporation has been able to quickly produce a variety of products according to the needs of buyers, starting with the four major sports leagues in the United States, and has begun receiving orders from big sports brands such as Adidas, Reebok, and Nike.
(3) 1999 ~ 2017
Instead of competing with cheap products, DADA Corporation has devoted itself to designing and acquiring the intellectual property rights to differentiate it into high value-added products. We started to increase the manufacturer’s development and production (ODM), which supplies products developed independently from fabric selection to design by breaking away from the OEM method of simply delivering what buyers order. DADA Corporation has 276 intellectual property rights acquired or pending at home and abroad through intensive R&D investment in device functions, designs, and materials (as of 2020 including 74 US patents).
