[April 29, 2016]  SEOUL (Reuters) - LG Display Co said on Friday it plans to invest 450 billion won ($395.99 million) in South Korea to build production capacity for flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays and OLED lighting panels.

An LG Display spokeswoman told Reuters the company would invest 310 billion won to boost flexible OLED capacity and 140 billion won to build a dedicated OLED lighting production line.

The investment adds to the 1.05 trillion won the firm committed in July 2015 for building its fourth organic light-emitting diode factory in the city of Gumi, about 200 kilometers southeast of Seoul.
