Poland Becomes Europe's Largest LCD TV Producer

Poland has become Europe's largest producer of LCD televisions thanks to multimillion investment projects by South Korean corporation LG Display and other international electronics companies.

More than 10 companies manufacturing components for LCD televisions formed a technology cluster in Kobierzyce near the southern city of Wrocław in 2006. The companies' concentration in a single place helps reduce transport, logistics and distribution costs. Between them, the companies provide employment to more than 7,500.

LG Display's Kobierzyce plant has made five million LCD panels since it opened in March last year. The largest customer for the panels is an adjacent LG Electronics plant that manufactures LCD televisions. The remaining output is delivered to other television producers including a Toshiba plant in Kobierzyce and Philips and Matsushita plants in the Czech Republic and Hungary.

The LG Display plant at Kobierzyce is the corporation's first LCD factory in Europe. Executives say the company's decision to choose a location in Poland was pivotal for its plans to expand in Europe, which is now the largest market for LCD televisions in the world.

The Kobierzyce factory has become one of LG's leading subsidiaries. One in four LCD panels manufactured globally under the LG Display brand comes from Kobierzyce. Outside Poland, LG manufactures LCD panels in four other sites located in South Korea and China. LG Display, formerly known as LG Philips LCD, has a more than 20-percent share in the global LCD market.
