The spreading of the KNX system, the worldwide standard for home and building control, enshrined in the ISO/IEC 14543-3 series, confirms again the internationalisation of this leading technology. The community around KNX, which is known for its high degree of interoperability between products of different manufacturers and different application domains, was recently proud to welcome the 350th manufacturer joining its ranks, LG Electronics from Korea.
LG Electronics is a global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications and home appliances, employing 87,000 people working in 113 locations around the world. With 2013 global sales of USD 53.10 billion, LG comprises five business units – Home Entertainment, Mobile Communications, Home Appliance, Air Conditioning & Energy Solution and Vehicle Components. Furthermore LG is one of the world’s leading producers of flat panel TVs, mobile devices, air conditioners, washing machines and refrigerators.
As a new member of the KNX Association, the interest of LG Electronics lies in enriching the KNX product portfolio, which will undoubtedly greatly benefit the further application of the KNX in the area of building control on a domestic Korean, but also on an international level.
Mr. Franz Josef Kammerl, President of KNX Association commented: ‘LG Electronics is the fifth Korean company to join the KNX Association. But LG Electronics does not only stand for high product quality for any kind of electronics, the involvement in KNX opens a new world for further cooperation on an international scale. Therefore, we are proud about the joining of LG Electronics and calling one of the biggest manufacturers worldwide a part of the continuously growing KNX community.’
