LG Logo Meaning and history

Logo LG

LG made its first steps in 1947 under the name of Lak-Hui Chemical Industrial Corp. Originally its main focus was plastic products. Subsequently, the GoldStar company was created, which later became LG Electronics. One of its most notable achievements was production of the first radio in South Korea.

In 1958 the two businesses started working as one under the name of Lucky-GoldStar. Although in the course of time the corporation’s focus shifted towards electronics, it still produces quite a few hygiene products (laundry detergent and toothpaste, for instance), for the domestic market. The corporation got its current name, “LG”, in 1995.
