Leehan America: Same Company, Different Name
In 2011, Deaki America made the corporate decision to change their name to Leehan America. Under the leadership of Mr.Haksun (Henry) Lee, COO and President of North America Operations, Leehan America is now one of Chambers County’s largest employers.
In 2007 Leehan America located in the Chambers County Industrial Park as a neighbor several other automotive suppliers. Under the leadership of CEO Ji Hoon Park, Leehan Corporation, the parent company of Leehan America, was established in 1979 and has become an automotive filtration system specialist, producing air cleaners, canisters, fuel filters and air elements in the Republic of Korea. Leehan is proud to employ 98 associates, many of which are Chambers County residents.
Leehan America, has undergone 2 expansions in the past 5 years and has plans for continued growth in Chambers County.
In 2011, Leehan made contributions to several charitable organizations throughout Chambers County including participating in the CCDA Sponsorship Program as a Gold level sponsor. One of the most rewarding contributions was to the AL Sheriffs Girls Ranch located in Camp Hill, AL .
This significant contribution allowed the Girls Ranch to purchase computers, which was much needed for the girls to complete their homework and other school assignments. “It was a very rewarding experience for me to have the opportunity to accompany Mr. Lee and the rest of the Leehan team when visiting the Girls’ Ranch. To see the joy in both the girls’ faces and also the faces of my associates was a very heartwarming experience” says Fuller of the CCDA.
Throughout the year, Leehan hosts employee appreciation days to show their employees how important they are to the success of the company. The 2011 Employee Appreciation Day was held at Butts Mill l Farms and all family members including the CCDA staff were invited to attend.
As it takes many parts to make a car complete, the same is ever more true for a company to be successful. Chambers County is proud to have Leehan America located here. Thank you for all you do!
