Hankook tyre was established by Jae Hun Chung's grandfather in 1941 as the Chosun tyre Company and was renamed to Hankook tyre Manufacturing in 1968. The word "Hankook" itself resembles Korea in Korean (literally meaning Korean tyres).

Hankook tyre's worldwide reputation has largely grown due to its radial tyre and bias-ply tyre production. The company now supplies tyres as original equipment to various automakers. In addition to producing about 92 million tyres annually, the company also sells batteries, alloy wheels, and brake pads.

Hankook tyre Co. has announced that the company will invest $1.1 billion to build a factory in West Java, Indonesia as part of a plan to become the 5th largest tyre manufacturer in the world.[2] On June 9, 2011 a ground breaking ceremony was held at a 60-hectare area as a regional hub production for export to Asian, North America and Middle East countries.[3]

In October 2013, the company announced plans to open a new factory in Tennessee.[4]
