LG Electronics was founded in 1958 in South Korea, originally as “GoldStar”. The company manufactures and distributes a wide range of appliances and consumer electronics around the globe. GoldStar merged with “Lucky” and LG Cable to found what today is LG Electronics.
The company plays a large role in the consumer appliance and electronics world. It is the second largest LCD television manufacturer in the world, and recently released the world’s first 84-inch ultra-HD television for sale to consumers. The company also makes mobile phones, computers, smart watches, tablets, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, and refrigerators, just to name a few of their products.
LG Electronics announced the availability of its latest premium, high-performance LG gram notebooks for the first time this year, which had received high praise earlier this month at CES 2018. The new 15-inch model is designed for users who want a more powerful performance from their notebook.
In April 2018, the company announced that they were adding Hulu Live TV to selected smart televisions.
LG made the Forbes list of Best Employers in 2018.
Although the company is based in South Korea, the company has established a corporate office in New Jersey. LG Electronics had annual revenue in 2015 of $56.5 trillion and employ almost 82,000 people.
