In 1983, the team were established as Hyundai Motor Service Men's Volleyball Team. They had won the winter league five times, and tens of other amateur leagues, before the professional series started in 2005.

In 2002, they were refounded as Hyundai Capital Men's Volleyball team, but they had to stay the second place because Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance Volleyball team row over so that had won the winter league for straight nine years. After the foundation of the professional league, they won the series in 2005. Finally, Sean Rooney joined them, and contributed to their championships in 2006 and 2007.

In 2008, they signed former Penn State player Matt Anderson and made him one of the first players to forgo his senior year in the NCAA to go pro.
