LG Establishing New Division to Focus Exclusively on High-End Kitchen Offerings

Sydney, Jan. 3, 2014 — LG Electronics (LG) has globally announced prior to the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that it will establish a new division exclusively responsible for its kitchen appliance business in order to expand the presence of its premium kitchen appliances in the global marketplace. Initially focusing on the U.S. and Korean markets, LG plans to double the distribution channels for its premium appliances.

The availability of products specific to LG’s premium kitchen appliance range will be determined for the Australian market in the near future. 

“We are expecting to see an increase in consumer demand for upscale appliances for new homes and remodelled kitchens.” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Australia. “With the success we have achieved in the refrigerator and washing machine segments worldwide, we are excited to see our company aggressively expanding its premium presence in the global market.”

In December 2013, the company introduced in the U.S. market the LG Studio, its premium kitchen appliance brand. With a focus on aesthetics and performance, LG Studio high-end appliances introduced unique features to help consumers save time, energy and effort. From the convenience of its Door-in-Door™ refrigerators to induction cooktops that offer the latest in style and performance, LG’s high-end kitchen appliances offer the perfect marriage of form and function.
