LG Electronics (LG) has opened a new scroll compressor production line at its factory in Monterrey, Mexico.

The new line bolsters LG's scroll compressor manufacturing infrastructure, enabling the company to produce more of its acclaimed, eco-conscious solutions while creating a shorter supply chain for servicing customers across North America.

LG's decision to establish a production line in Mexico comes at a time when many US HVAC manufacturers are facing challenges due to escalating logistical disruptions.

The strategic move places an LG scroll compressor production base in close proximity to key North American markets; setting up a production/logistics system that will help the company better respond to regional demand and lessen the impact on customers of factors such as logistic issues.

LG's scroll compressors play a major role in the company's heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) components business. At AHR Expo 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia, LG showcased its energy-efficient Gen 3 Scroll Compressors for residential air conditioners and heat pumps, as well as large-capacity scroll compressors for commercial system air conditioning.

Head of the component solution business unit at LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company, Kim Yang-sun, said the new state of the art production line in Mexico will enable LG to fortify services in the North American market.

"LG will continue to provide advanced technologies and components to meet the diverse needs of its global customers,” he said.
