LG Electronics USA celebrated the opening of its new air-conditioning-systems headquarters in Alpharetta, Ga., Nov. 11.

The 40,000-sq-ft facility will be used to support LG’s air-conditioning-systems business and educate engineers, contractors, and technicians about LG’s HVAC technologies.

The city of 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,” William Cho, president and chief executive officer, LG Electronics USA, said. “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: 

  • Business Innovation Center, offering a central location for customers to interact with LG’s B2B products.
  • Learning Academy, which provides a hub for the LG Excellence Contractor Program’s series of formal, hands-on training sessions.
  • Engineering Control Lab, which serves as an advanced, hands-on facility for LG engineers to develop new technologies, gain understanding of products, and conduct final testing on products before they enter the market.

“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,” Kevin McNamara, senior vice president, sales and operations for LG Electronics USA’s air-conditioning-systems business, said.

In addition to its air-conditioning-systems headquarters in Alpharetta, LG Electronics USA this month is opening a Business Innovation Center for its commercial display business in Lincolnshire, Ill.
