LG opens new aircon hq
USA: LG Electronics officially opened its new US air conditioning hq outside of Atlanta yesterday.
The new 40,000ft² facility in Alpharetta, home to the LG air conditioning since 2006, will support the company’s business and provide a centre for training, operations and engineering.
“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 and CEO, LG Electronics USA.
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 Centre will provide a global showcase for LG commercial solutions, offering a central location for customers to interact with LG’s B2B products.
LG’s Learning Academy builds on the success of the LG Excellence Contractor Program, providing an additional hub for the programme’s series of formal, hands-on training sessions for contractors. The new centre is designed to encourage contractors to become experts in the application and design of LG’s technology.
The LG Engineering Control Lab serves as an advanced, hands-on facility for LG engineers to develop new technologies, gain understanding on the ins-and-outs of each product and conduct final testing on products before they enter the market. LG engineers can also learn how to best create integrated systems that serves a building as efficiently as possible.
“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.
