- The 100,000-square-foot factory is set to produce 12,000 units of Level 2 and Level 3 EV chargers annually
- North Texas continues to attract foreign-owned businesses
LG Electronics has inaugurated its first electronic vehicle (EV) charger production factory in the United States this month in Fort Worth, Texas.
North Texas continues to attract foreign-owned businesses, with LG Electronics joining a growing list of multi-billion dollar companies relocating their headquarters and establishing factories in the region, favouring Texas over other states.
“The EV charger business is a growth engine for LG’s future, supporting the company’s transformation into a smart solutions company,” said Alec Jang, president of LG Electronics Business Solutions. The north Texas factory is LG’ first to advance EV charger production for the North American market, he said, “with the goal of becoming a leader in the EV charging business around the world.”
Parker commended LG for its longstanding involvement in the Fort Worth community, where the company has operated a vast million-square-foot distribution center for consumer electronics and home appliances for the past three decades.
She expressed gratitude to LG for selecting Fort Worth as the location to establish its U.S. manufacturing base for EV chargers, thereby generating new employment opportunities in the area. Parker took pride in that Fort Worth would be the site for producing LG’s advanced EV charging stations, which would be deployed nationwide.
The 100,000-square-foot factory is set to produce 12,000 units of Level 2 and Level 3 EV chargers annually, all powered by 100% renewable energy sources. LG Business Solutions noted in a statement that the factory’s opening would result in numerous tech jobs in North Texas, underscoring LG’s commitment to the region as a future-oriented innovation and manufacturing center.
