LG Chem to spend $1.07B to expand battery plants in China
Reuters | 2019/1/15

SEOUL -- South Korea's LG Chem plans to invest 1.2 trillion won ($1.07 billion) to expand two battery plants in China by 2020 in a bid to meet rising global demand.

Under the investment plan, LG Chem will spend 600 billion won each at an electric vehicle battery plant and a small-sized battery plant in Nanjing, the company said in a statement.

Last year, the South Korean battery maker announced a plan to invest about 2 trillion won to build a second electric car battery plant by 2023 in Nanjing.
