LG Electronics USA Opens Air Conditioning Systems Headquarters Hub Near Atlanta, Georgia
The city of Alpharetta has been home to the LG air conditioning business since 2006 making it a natural choice for this year's headquarters expansion, company officials said. As the LG customer base continues to grow, a well-equipped location for training, operations and engineering became necessary in order to streamline all parts of the business and further develop and showcase LG's innovative HVAC technology.
"The new LG headquarters in Alpharetta is a symbol of our commitment to forward-thinking B2B technology, continuous innovation and elevated education in our air conditioning business and beyond," said William Cho, President/CEO, LG Electronics USA. "Today's opening is another important milestone, and we look forward to remaining part of the ever-expanding Alpharetta business community."
The building features the LG Business Innovation Center, a brand-new Learning Academy and an Engineering Control Lab, all aimed at bringing together engineers, contractors and technicians under one roof. The Business Innovation Center, a global showcase for LG commercial solutions, offers a central location for customers to interact with LG's B2B products, including its flagship VH7B series, considered to be the pinnacle of video wall digital signage solutions.
"As our business continues to grow, this facility will become a crucial force in the ongoing development of innovative air conditioning solutions, and in providing our key partners and engineers with the educational and operational tools necessary for success in the field," said Kevin McNamara, Senior Vice President, Sales and Operations for LG Electronics USA's air conditioning systems business.
In addition to its Air Conditioning Systems Headquarters in Alpharetta, LG Electronics USA this month is also opening its own Business Innovation Center for LG's commercial display business in Lincolnshire, Ill. These centers are the first of their kind in the U.S. and two of only nine such centers globally, with additional locations in Amsterdam; London; Sao Paulo; Moscow; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Hanoi, Vietnam; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
