LG Electronics Opens Expanded Headquarters
Facility aims to connect and educate contractors, engineers, and industry leaders
LG Electronics USA has opened its new LG Air Conditioning Systems headquarters in Alpharetta, Georgia, outside of Atlanta. The 40,000-square-foot facility is designed to support LG’s air conditioning systems business and educate engineers, contractors, and technicians about LG’s HVAC technologies. Alpharetta has been home to the LG air conditioning business since 2006.
“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 Center, a global showcase for LG commercial solutions, offers a central location for customers to interact with LG’s B2B products.
LG’s Learning Academy builds on the LG Excellence Contractor Program, providing an additional hub for the program’s series of formal, hands-on training sessions for contractors. LG additionally provides project partnership with contractors to ensure successful and efficient installations.
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 serve 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.
