LG Chem owns half of the joint venture while the other half is shared by two Chinese state-run companies – Nanjing Zijin Technology Incubation Special Park Construction Development Co Ltd and Nanjing New Industrial Investment Group Ltd. 

The Korean battery giant said it has been investing hundreds of millions of dollars into the factory and expects a total of 1 trillion won in revenue by 2020, just by the batteries produced in Nanjing.
