Information on LG Chem:


LG Chem is a $20Bn globally diversified chemical company that operates via three main business units: Petrochemicals, IT & Electronic Materials, and Energy Solutions. The company manufactures a wide range of products, from petrochemical goods to high-value-added plastics. With a significant market share in consumer, automotive, and stationary applications, LG Chem is the world's leading developer and lithium-ion polymer battery manufacturer.


Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, LG Chem serves customers in North America and Europe via regional sales and support organizations. In North America, this is via LG Chem, based in Troy, MI. The market for large, grid-scale energy storage systems (ESS) is growing fast, driven by the challenges of increasing penetration of intermittent renewable generation resources. Both independent project developers and electric utilities implement plans to deploy grid-scale ESS. LG Chem has advanced technology, proven products, and commercial strengths required to maintain its leading position in this growing market sector.


The LG Group has identified ESS as one of the company's top ten future growth opportunities - and so this represents an opportunity to join a highly successful global company at a relatively early stage in its growth.
