With quality oil supply system products and great after-service, LC Fuel Tank is known for its own brand “LC” worldwide and its products have not only gained great popularity among international aftermarkets, but also have become the first choice for antique cars and modified cars. LC Fuel Tank has an entire whole manufacturing line, ranging from the purchase of raw materials, tank molding, trimming, stamping, spot welding, wheel welding, brazing, airtightness test, and painting. Other processes that LC offers, for example, include semi-automatic packaging for warehousing or distribution with consistent production processes, all with the aim of introducing OEM's process of manufacturing and quality control to deliver the best quality.

General Manager Chan Yu-peng said the firm is the first oil system supplier entering the global market and has developed its finished fuel tanks and mold of fuel tanks in-house. With 95 % of products exported overseas and offering over 1,500 different product molds, LC Fuel Tank is known as a Tier 1 supplier. Aside from parts for fuel tanks, the firm also provides integrated oil supply system solutions. If assembly plants choose different parts to assemble the oil supply system, it will often cause problems such as high costs for maintenance or result in failure to clarify warranty responsibilities. In order to provide users with more comprehensive solutions, the firm is directly responsible for the establishment of the entire fuel supply system, and with professional and strict quality control and specified manufacturing equipment, offering customers more secure and efficient product options. Therefore, the brand LC enjoys a high degree of popularity in its industry.

Chan emphasized that the firm has strengthened overall quality control, as well as established its own coating system. Instead of choosing a liquid coating harmful to human and the environment, LC adopted powder coating instead. Powder coating is typically applied electrostatically to make paints adhere to the surface of the products and then cured at 220°C. There are several advantages for using powder coating. Firstly, the durability and thickness of the powder coating are three times as much as the liquid coating. Also, it is a more eco-friendly, less pollutive alternative, which greatly enhances health protection for the public. Therefore, despite the costly investment from purchasing powder coating equipment, the manufacturing process is now recognized by many international clients. This allows LC to receive more substantial benefits while implementing corporate social responsibility.


Since LC Fuel Tank has established a stable market internationally with products exporting mainly to the United States and Europe, the firm's production is often in full capacity. In response to boosting production capacity further, LC Fuel Tank has invested in the construction of a new plant and equipment to satisfy the strong demand, with an estimated investment of NT$250 million for constructing a new plant situated in the Xiluo Futian Industrial Zone. The new production line and warehouse is slated to cover 13,200 square meters. Setting up three production lines and introducing semi-automated robotic arms can triple the current production capacity, speed up the delivery time to fulfill the purchasing demands from clients, thus resolve the problem of insufficient capacity.

Chan said that in response to the global market competition and changes, the automotive parts industry saw the gradual rise of the electric vehicle industry. Although, LC Fuel Tank has a good pulse on the aftermarket trends, it realizes the need to differentiate and diversify products. Running a company must be vigilant in times of peace in order to pave the way for its next thirty years, Chan says.

LC Fuel Tank is an active player in the antique cars and modified cars market. Generally, the definition of antique cars refers to those vehicles that were manufactured before 1980 or those preserved in high value with rarity.
It is expected that the automotive industry hark back to nostalgic, retro times, a trend prevalent around the world, as collecting antique cars is a symbol of taste. As to maintain the normal functionality of antique cars, considered the most basic requirement, the fuel supply system is also a critical part as well. LC Fuel Tank 's high-quality and diverse mold supply can meet the needs of most antique car owners.
