LGE raises LCD TV production in China
LG Electronics, the world’s second-largest TV manufacturer, has
installed a liquid-crystal display production line at its flat-screen plant in China
targeting a rapidly expanding Chinese middle class, the company said Sunday.
he new facility in Shenyang, the capital of northeastern Liaoning
province, began operation recently to produce about 65,000 LCD televisions per month.
“It follows our strategies to actively respond to the Chinese premium
TV market by establishing a production line for LCD TVs, for which demand has surged
recently,” an LG official said.
The Seoul-headquartered firm runs 14 factories in China but had
produced LCD TVs only at its Nanjing unit in southern China.
It plans to distribute 3-D TVs and smart TVs made in Shenyang throughout northern
China and keep Nanjing as a production base for southern regions, another official
said, thus saving shipping costs and making its supply chain more sophisticated.
