LS Cable & System plans to expand its Donghae Factory in order to meet the increasing demand for submarine cables. The South Korean cable manufacturer has reportedly signed a contract for the purchase of the expansion site with the city of Donghae on February 23. The new factory is expected to have manufacturing facilities, submarine cable storage, warehouse and R&D center among other units.

According to the sources, around KRW 80 billion would be invested in the factory expansion project until 2025. The project is anticipated to have a positive impact on the mutual growth of local companies, employment of local citizens, and reviving the local economy.
