Manufacturer
LG
Originally founded in 1995 as “Lucky Goldstar,” South Korean conglomerate LG came out of the merger of chemical manufacturer Lucky Chemical and electronics-maker Goldstar. Though LG is best known in the U.S. for making consumer electronics and home appliances — it’s one of the most popular names in TVs and washing machines, among others — the company makes everything from textiles and plastics to Korean Coca-Cola.
