LS GreenLink, a wholly-owned subsidiary of LS C&S, plans to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to produce high-voltage submarine power cables in the United States, as a part of LS C&S's long-term strategic plan for its global expansions.

"Our new manufacturing facility will create many high-quality jobs and bring advanced manufacturing capabilities to support the clean technology industry in the United States," said Patrick Y. Shim, Managing Director of LS GreenLink. "We will announce more details about the project in the coming weeks."
