Until the early 1960s, the city of Ulsan was a fishing port and agricultural center. However, as the Ulsan Industrial District began to build up in 1962, it emerged as an industrial center of Korea. The city became home to major industrial plants and factories, which include oil refineries, chemical plants, and the multinational Hyundai Corporation's ship building and automobile production factories.
