ROSWELL, Ga. - LG Electronics USA celebrated the grand opening of the LG Training Academy in Roswell, Ga., to support LG’s fast-growing commercial air conditioner business. At 16,000 square feet, this facility has the capability to train hundreds of engineers, contractors, and technicians each month. According to the company, the strategic location of the new facility places LG in a position to deliver the best hands-on product training for a region of the country with high demand for commercial air conditioning systems.

The training academy is the centerpiece of the new LG Roswell facility, which also houses the company’s local operations for LG Mobile Phones and LG Digital Appliances. This location now has a total of 30 employees and plans to hire additional staff in 2009.

Michael Ahn, president and CEO, LG Electronics North America, called the new Roswell location “a symbol of LG’s growth and vitality” in North America. “This is another important milestone in LG’s tremendous expansion in the United States.”

The company’s new training academy will provide a variety of courses for engineers, contractors, technicians, and air conditioning sales managers. Attendees will have the option of participating in shorter half-day courses or more intensive five-day training sessions. The new training academy will provide focused training rooms for education on LG’s Multi-V applied commercial systems, duct-free mini split, packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) systems, and layout and model selection software. The training will provide hands-on experience with LG’s products in diverse situations for full application training.
