Halla Group is a South Korean chaebol. It was founded as Hyundai International Inc. in 1962. The Halla name was first used in 1978 as the name of a cement company. The name Halla is taken from the name of "Mount Halla" a.k.a. Hallasan mountain, situated in Jeju Island. Halla collapsed in 1997 during the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. In 2008 Halla repurchased Mando, a car company they sold during the financial crisis. The chaebol also sponsors multiple hockey teams, mainly Anyang Halla in the Asia League Ice Hockey and Kiekko-Vantaa in the Finnish Mestis.
Halla Group engages in automobile, construction, distribution/port, investment, education, and sports businesses in Korea and internationally. Its construction business comprises the provision of civil, architectural, housing, plant, and environmental works; supply of construction materials, such as remicon, compounds, and pile concrete; and manufacture and distribution of remicon and aggregates.
