Hosted by the Customers Council, the annual Korea First Brand Awards is one of the largest brand award ceremonies in the country.

Backed by GS Caltex’s 50 years of experience, technological development and world-class production facilities, Kixx was recognized for its superior quality as the most trusted lubricant brand in the country. Underlying that success is the brand’s high-quality base oils.

Since base oils make up 80% of lubricant composition, lubricant quality is largely dependent on the quality of its base oil. Over 180 of Kixx products, ranging from passenger to commercial cars usage, are formulated with GS Caltex’s premium base oil, which is manufactured at their domestic oil refinery facilities in Yeosu and Incheon.

Those world-class facilities and technologies are powering Kixx as it aims to become a leading global lubricant brand. Since first launching overseas in 2010, Kixx has been recognized as a quality lubricant brand in over 63 countries. To cater to the different needs of these global consumers, Kixx exports products optimized for the unique conditions of each country.

To expand on its domestic roots and become the top global lubricant brand, Kixx has been actively communicating with consumers around the world. The company has embraced regional and cultural elements in their global marketing, taking a thoughtful approach that has gained traction with global consumers.
