Wide array of innovations in 2018
In the high added value VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) product market, which has a market size of USD 250 million in Turkey and had been fully dependent on imports, the first domestic production of low-medium capacity VRF outdoor units and low capacity cassette type indoor units were carried out.
Studies for the transition to more environmentally friendly R32 refrigerant gas in all home type split air conditioning products, ranging from 9,000 to 18,000 BTU/h capacity were completed and air conditioning units using R32 refrigerant gas were also produced for the first time in Turkey. The Company introduced these products, whose usage is becoming more widespread in Europe, to the domestic and European markets in the first half of 2018.
Designed and offered to the market in 2017 for remote access and remote control of air conditioning units over smartphones, the integration of network connected air conditioning units to the HomeWhiz system was initiated in cooperation with Arçelik A.Ş.
Offering high quality and energy efficient products to its consumers, Arçelik-LG aims to keep its leading position in the domestic market via strengthening its competitiveness while increasing its exports. On the other hand, the Company plans to increase its market share in the commercial air conditioning segment by expanding its product mix, and continue its investments and design work to maintain its leading position.
