LG Electronics relocated its plant from Johannesburg to Durban and unveiled its new home for manufacturing and distribution on 24 January 2020.
KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala said the move was a “progressive decision as this factory has the potential to contribute tremendously in growing the City and province’s economy”.
The factory had a staff complement of 112 people, including employees from Johannesburg and new local recruits.
Former LG Electronics South Africa brand marketing manager Steven Bosch said at the time that they intend on doubling the number of employees in a few years.
“The LG Electronics plant will assist the Municipality to intensify its efforts to create a conducive environment for business,” said eThekwini’s Sibongiseni Mkhize.
