SIGNATURE KITCHEN SUITE FROM LG ELECTRONICS SATISFIES THE DIFFERENT-BUT-DEMANDING NEEDS OF BUILDERS AND DESIGNERS
While it might not exactly rival Charles Dickens’ story of the French doctor Manette being pulled between Paris and London during the French Revolution, the need for Signature Kitchen Suite, the luxury appliance division of LG Electronics, to please two distinct customer audiences — builders and designers – offers some similar dynamics.
Like the European capitals, the two groups speak different languages and operate in their own distinct cultures. Both also strive to meet the special needs of different-but-demanding clienteles who expect excellence.
Fortunately for Signature Kitchen Suite and LG for Builders, the builder division of LG Electronics, both builders and designers share a commitment to offering their clients the very best in built-in product innovation, leading-edge technology, craftsmanship, and customer service.
