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.
