LG Solar Panels
LG Electronics, Inc. (LG) is a global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications and home appliances. The company employs more than 84,000 people working in 112 operations, including 81 subsidiaries around the world, with global sales of $55.5 billion in 2009.
The history of LG's solar business can be traced back to the mid-1980's, when the LG central research lab started R&D on solar technologies. In 2004, the LG business group created synergy and prepared for mass production by consolidating several solar research laboratories under the LG Electronics umbrella. Using decades of R&D experiences, LG Electronics broke ground on its first solar cell and module factory. LG considers the solar power business not as a mere business expansion, but a new growth engine of the LG Group.
