LG Chem to Pump $1 Billion Into Nanjing Battery Complex
South Korea’s LG Chem Ltd. said it will invest more than $1 billion on new battery-production capacity in the eastern city of Nanjing, tapping demand in both China and globally for storage products that are a central component of renewable energy cars and power plants.
The plan will see LG Chem pour 1.2 trillion won ($1.07 billion) into the new Nanjing complex, about half of which will go for electric vehicle and small battery production, the company said in a Thursday announcement (link in Korean) on its website. It held a signing ceremony the previous day to finalize the investment, which will be made over the next two years.
