MONTGOMERY, Alabama – Governor Kay Ivey announced today that LG Electronics, a leading provider of residential solar panels in the United States, plans to invest $28 million to open an advanced solar module assembly plant in Huntsville, creating 160 jobs.
LG will establish the new factory with two production lines at an existing building on the company’s 48-acre campus in Huntsville, where the company has had operations for four decades. The new jobs will increase LG’s employment by 60 percent, to more than 400 workers.
“LG has a long history as a leading corporate citizen in Alabama. Now, LG is launching our state’s first solar manufacturing plant, which represents a major milestone both for Alabama and for the company,” Governor Kay Ivey said.
“We look forward to seeing where this great partnership takes us in the future.”
