Andamiro’s Global Growth Prompts Move Into New Korea Headquarters And First Office Opening In Japan
GOYANG, Gyeonggi Province, Republic of Korea — Andamiro Co. Ltd., parent company of Andamiro USA Corp., is pleased to announce that it has moved into larger and more modern headquarters here. The relocation from the old office, also in Goyang, was completed in the first quarter of this year.
Andamiro’s new office is located in the Ilsan Techno Town building in Goyang, which is one of the cities that comprise the Seoul Capital Area. It houses Andamiro’s international sales organization, marketing and administration departments, executive staff and the iconic Pump It Up music development team.
The new address is #704-1, Gongjang-dong, Ilsan Techno Town, 138, Ilsan-ro, Ilsandong-gu, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea. The company is online at andamiro.com.
A satellite of the South Korean capital, Goyang is a high-tech metropolis that is also home to several distinguished higher-education institutions, including the Agricultural Cooperative College, Korea Aerospace University, and Transnational Law and Business University. South Korea, one of the world’s most technologically advanced nations, has selected Goyang to be its “smart city model” to pilot various Internet of Things initiatives before they are introduced nationwide.
Andamiro’s highly engineered amusement devices are built in a nearby factory complex, also in Gyeonggi Province, and at another facility in Incheon, Korea’s third most-populous city after Seoul and Busan.
In related news, Andamiro announced the opening of its first branch office in Tokyo earlier this year. Andamiro has been building arcade gaming products for the Japanese amusement market for several years, and it was a major exhibitor at this year’s Japan Amusement Expo (JAEPO) in February. Leo Kim oversees Andamiro’s business in Japan.

The establishment of an office in Japan is the third significant expansion move made by the Korean company. Andamiro opened a branch office in Guangzhou, China, in 2011 and established Andamiro USA Corp. in southern California in 2000.
