ALPHARETTA, Ga. â€” LG Electronics USA celebrated the opening of its new LG Air Conditioning Systems Headquarters outside of Atlanta. At 40,000 square feet, LG said this state-of-the-art facility will support its fast-growing air conditioning systems business and educate engineers, contractors, and technicians about the companyâ€™s HVAC technologies.

This opening â€œis another important milestone, and we look forward to remaining part of the ever-expanding Alpharetta business community.â€
The building features the LG Business Innovation Center, a Learning Academy, and an Engineering Control Lab, all aimed at bringing together engineers, contractors, and technicians under one roof. The Business Innovation Center, a showcase for LG commercial solutions, offers a central location for customers to interact with LGâ€™s B2B products, including its flagship VH7B series.
LGâ€™s Learning Academy builds on the ongoing success of the LG Excellence Contractor Program, providing an additional hub for the programâ€™s series of formal, hands-on training sessions for contractors. LG additionally provides project partnership with contractors to ensure successful and efficient installation each and every time. With this program and new Learning Academy, the company enables contractors to become experts in application, design, and LGâ€™s technology in the field.
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.
â€œAs 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,â€ said Kevin McNamara, senior vice president, sales and operations for LG Electronics USAâ€™s air conditioning systems business.
