Welcome, and first of all, we sincerely appreciate all our customers for visiting the LX International’s website.
We would also like to thank all of our customers for showering us with their unwavering interest and support.

As the name changed from 'Bando Trading Corporation', 'Lucky Goldstar Trading Corporation', 'LGI', and finally LX International, the company has built the foundations for Korea’s trade and shared its growth trajectory with the economic development of the nation.

As LX International is now a comprehensive business company that implements global businesses across all areas of the Value Chain, from trading to business development and investment, financing, raw material supply, and logistics, we aspire to raise our corporate brand value and continue to expand and innovate based on our 50 or so business hubs worldwide.

In line with this, the company will maximize the value of our existing competitive major businesses such as energy, life resources, solutions, etc. while continuously generating outcomes by pursuing preemptive investments in industries displaying promising new successes such as secondary cell batteries, healthcare, eco-friendly businesses, etc.

We will secure the future growth engines of LX International by building a balanced business portfolio between our existing and new endeavors. Based on the vision of 'Future in Business Solutions', we pledge to do our best in creating customer value and enhancing our business value in order to take our company to the next level.

We look forward to receiving your consistent affection and encouragement for LX International's new beginnings.

Thank you.
