Donghee was established in 1972 as Dongseung Co. Ltd. to produce automotive bumper and pedal parts.[2] In 1986, Donghee Industrial Co. Ltd. was established in Ulsan with the assistance of Hyundai Motor Company. A year later, Donghee formed a joint venture with German firm Webasto to locally manufacture sunroof parts as Webasto Donghee (formerly Korea Sunroof Co. Ltd.). Donghee Auto Co. Ltd. was established in 2002 as a joint venture with Kia Motors to manufacture the Kia Picanto in Seosan.

Outside Korea, Donghee has manufacturing plants in China, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Turkey, Russia, and The United States.[2][3]
