Recognized by the top global vehicle manufacturer, LG Innotek quality is the best.

LG Innotek (CEO, Cheol-Dong Jeong) has been recognized for the quality of its vehicle components as the company has repeatedly won the Best Supplier Award from US-based global automaker GM. LG Innotek has won GM’s 2021 Supplier Quality Excellence Award for five consecutive years from 2017 to 2021.

The Supplier Quality Excellence Award is presented each year by GM to its partners who have met the strict ‘zero defect’ quality standard. Only the companies that have supplied perfect quality parts for car manufacturers are eligible for this award.

Since auto parts are crucial to the life and safety of passengers and pedestrians, their quality must be controlled very strictly compared to other products. GM is best known for its strict auditing standards, as it is one of the best automakers in the world. This is why it is significant that LG Innotek has received the Supplier Quality Excellence Award five years in a row.

  • The company proved the globally competitive quality of its auto parts.

LG Innotek has been supplying GM with electric vehicle components such as a DC-DC converter and an Electric Vehicle Communication Controller (EVCC) since 2010.

The DC-DC converter is a component that converts high-voltage direct current from the battery into low-voltage direct current that is suitable for vehicle accessories. The EVCC sends the information about the charging status of the battery, a driver who is in the car and the charging rate between an electric car and a charging machine.

This Supplier Quality Excellence Award is LG Innotek’s sixth award from GM. By supplying full quality parts for the past 12 years, LG Innotek has further strengthened its trust and partnership with GM.

LG Innotek has continuously raised the bar for automotive quality control standards by acquiring global certificates, complying with new standards such as cybersecurity, and participating in the development of new standards.

LG Innotek has obtained CL3 certification for Automotive Software Process Improvement and Capability Assessment (ASPICE), an evaluation model for the development process of automotive parts software, and Cybersecurity Management System (CSMS) certification.

In addition, the company actively participates in international standardization related to autonomous driving (ISO 21448), standardization of international charging control for electric vehicles (ISO/IEC15118) and a consortium for car connectivity.

  • Innovate the customer experience through next-generation auto parts with perfect quality.

LG Innotek has been selected as an outstanding partner company and recognized for its quality competitiveness by major global automakers and auto parts companies, including not only GM, but also Continental, Schaeffler and Jaguar Land Rover.

Byaeng-Kuk YooHead of Automotive Components Business Unit at LG Innotek, said:

LG Innotek will showcase next-generation full-quality products such as vehicle sensors, cameras and communication modules, and innovate the customer experience in the global electronic vehicle and autonomous vehicle markets.

This year, LG Innotek plans to accelerate the improvement of the industrial structure of the auto parts business and continuously expand its position in the global auto parts market.

The company will do its best to improve profitability, in particular by actively continuing to improve product and customer structure, strengthen global SCM capabilities, platform models (versatile products that minimize customization) and standardization.
