About us


Defense Business of LS Mtron

We are the sole manufacturer of military track shoes in Korea that support the entire weight of combat vehicles such as main battle tanks, armored personnel carriers and self-propelled howitzers.

We have been supplying track shoes to the nation’s armed forces since 1975. Our commitment was recognized in early 2013 when we were chosen as an outstanding defense company by the DAPA (Defense Acquisition Program Administration) Commissioner. In late 2013, we were also honored with the National Defense Minister’s Commendation for our remarkable export results.

In 2013, our endeavors to diversify our customer portfolio in the national and global markets led to an 18% growth in sales from the previous year that allowed us to set a new record in sales. We will continue to deliver new products based on emerging, forward-looking and market-leading technologies (durable and lightweight) while increasing sales at our overseas operations as part of our sustained effort to achieve sustainable growth.

Our goal is to develop new products through cutting-edge technologies and establish a stronger global presence so as to evolve into a global top manufacturer and pioneer for the advancement of the defense industry.

Thank you
