The goal is to grow into a multinational company by investing in additional facilities in the energy national industrial complex to be created near the innovative industrial complex, leading to the size of the facility. In particular, it is expected to compete with world-class battery manufacturers by leading exports as well as stable corporate operation through differentiated supply chains such as military supply.
CEO Lee Seul-chan said, “With the opening of Korea Energy Engineering University, a global energy-specialized university, it is easy to secure high-quality human resources, and the conditions for specializing related industries are being created based on KEPCO, so we decided to invest in Jeonnam.”
Governor Kim Young-rok said, "The start of construction of LCM Energy Solutions's battery plant is very meaningful for the development of Jeonnam's industry."
