LG Electronics, one of the global leaders in consumer electronics, has opened its fourth free laundry centre in Nigeria, with capacity to wash and dry about 500 set of clothes, as part of its effort to give back to the community with a state of art hygienic free laundry centre.

The free laundry facility, which is situated at the heart of Benin City at 6, Country Home Motel Road, Off Sapele road, Benin business district, is a follow up to similar wash centre established by the company in Lagos, Port-Harcourt and Kano initiated under its corporate social responsibility (CSR). Needless to mention that the laundry centre in Ogba, Lagos has been upgraded to the most recently built commercial laundry machines to cater for more families.

Speaking during the launch, after commissioning the centre in Benin City, Mr. Brian Kang, General Manager, Home Appliances Division, LG Electronics West Africa operations, said that the initiative was designed in order to improve the living conditions as well as support the daily washing needs of people in Nigeria of which the project started about three years ago in Lagos.

“LG Electronics has over the years continued to receive commendation from Nigerian consumers for having their interest at heart by providing cutting edge technological products. The three operational centres have been able to cater for over 24,000 families and washed over 300,000 clothes. This is significant for us as a socially responsive company. The wash centre that we are opening here in Benin City today, has the capacity to wash 500 sets of clothes per day for over 40 persons, and this we believe would go a long way in assisting the people of the state in meeting their washing needs,” stated Mr. Kang.
