KBI, located in Hwaseong City, South Korea, is a major importer of transportation related products. In 2022, KBI added LSI Chemical’s nano-based lubricants and Hot Shot’s Secret performance additives and oils to its roster of product lines. In addition to LSI Chemical’s fuel and oil additives developed to be used as custom formulations for oil and gas refiners and jobbers, KBI will also market over 50-plus Hot Shot’s Secret products, the company said.
“This is the first distributor that has made the journey to our headquarters in Mt. Gilead, Ohio,” said LSI Chemical President Todd Cawley. “We are excited to partner with a company that is entrenched in distribution of parts and services for the transportation industry in South Korea and who is equally excited to understand and promote our lubricant product line.”
“Our business has been thriving since 2004 specializing in importing only the highest quality transportation related products for truck and rail. After reading about LSI Chemical online, we were intrigued by the company’s remarkable achievements with nano technology and how for the transportation market it is revolutionizing performance, fuel mileage and sustainability,” said Sechul Kang, KBI CEO. “After completing our tour and speaking with R&D, we were convinced that it was an ideal time to venture into the lubricant market. We feel confident it will be embraced by our existing customer base and will open up new opportunities for growth.”
