About Us
Beyond chemicals, LG Chem will become a world-class corporation
that creates new value for our customers based on science.

Since its establishment in 1947, LG Chem has continuously achieved growth through stiff challenges and innovations as the Korea’s leading chemical company.​​​​

From the infrangible facial cream lid to the top-notch batteries of unprecedented quality, LG Chem has turned dreams into reality to enrich the lives of humanity for the past 70 years.

Building upon a balanced and globally competitive business portfolio that includes petrochemicals, advanced materials, life sciences, and a subsidiary specializing in batteries, LG Chem will once again endeavor to become one of the top five chemical companies in the world.

“We connect science to life for a better future.” Beyond chemicals, LG Chem will build a world class company that creates new value for our customers based on science.
