In the process of making sensible financial decision, South Africans have created 31 ICON brands and LG Electronics South Africa proudly walked off with eight awards in the 2015 TGI Icon Brand Awards.

ICON Brands unite nations; cut across age, income, race and language spectrums.

ICON brands also define a common experience, often on a daily basis, to which South Africans are committed and even seek these brands outside of South Africa.

It speaks to the commitment we have to our customers, to deliver exceptional, quality consumer electronics products all the time. LG is a trusted brand and we always strive to produce premium products and services to delight our customers”, says Thomas van der Linde, LG’s General Manager for Marketing.
