LSI Chemical announced it has signed KB Inc., also known as KBI, as the company’s latest international distributor. Located in Hwaseong City, South Korea, KBI is a major importer of transportation-related products, LSI says.
The company began operations in 2004 supplying CIVACON/KNAPPCO (OPW brands) tanker components to tanker builders distributing products and systems that help safely load, monitor and unload petroleum, dry bulk, and petro-chemical cargo tanks. KBI has expanded its imports since 2007 to include parts and components for trucks and trailers for road and rail.
“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,” commented Sechul Kang, KBI CEO. “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. 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.”
