About LS Mtron Injection Molding Machines

LS Mtron Injection Molding Machines is a division of LS Corporation, a $30 billion USD conglomerate of companies that was founded by South Korean-based tech giant LG Corporation.

LS Mtron IMM was borne out of the Injection Molding Machinery needs of LG Corporation, one of the world’s largest plastic molders, who was producing components used in the manufacturing of LG-brand products.  When LG needed more injection molding machines to keep up with its tremendous demand, they began making machines for their own use.  LG originally produced their own machines using drawings licensed from Toshiba. Eventually, they created the LS Mtron brand which today produces up to 2,800 machines per year, not only for use by its own related companies (LG Electronics, LG Appliances, LS Automotive, LG Solar, etc.), but for many other molders around the world.

LS Mtron machines are premium quality, manufactured in supply-chain friendly South Korea.  LS maintains total control over manufacturing its machines by leveraging the tremendous power of its founding company, LG Corporation, and its related spin-offs.  This includes using Korean-made steel from an LS subsidiary, servo motors made by an LG-founded company, and more, including the ability to ship through another LG-related company, LX Pantos. This helps LS Mtron conquer the long lead times many others experience. When building a new molding machine, LS Mtron can achieve castings to cargo ready in about 100 days.  

In the USA, LS Mtron Injection Molding Machines is led by Peter Gardner, Business Director.  The company’s US headquarters are in Peachtree Corners, GA (near Atlanta), and its Tech Center is in Wood Dale, IL (near Chicago).
