CORONA, Calif. (November 18, 2019) - During its annual visit to the AAPEX automotive aftermarket trade show in Las Vegas, Lucas Oil Products became the talk of the show thanks to a new, innovative product packaging program known as “Bag in a Box.” Lucas Oil was selected as the winning entry for the Best Packaging Award for the show’s Environmental Impact category.

The “Bag in a Box” oil program was specifically designed to be used by dealerships, auto repair shops, and quick lubes for their ability to carry multiple oil grades and specialty items for faster lube servicing and dispensing. Thanks to a 100% recyclable package, the “Bag in a Box” oils boast an eco-friendly design that aims to reduce waste with less plastic, while the bag system ensures that users get every last drop.

“We’re really excited about the ‘Bag in a Box’ program. It’s not necessarily a new idea or philosophy, but it’s new to us and allows us to build on the line of products that we’ve created to help the environment,” said Morgan Lucas, Senior Vice President of Sales. “By providing this packaging alternative, we’re giving our consumers a more effective disposal or recycling option, which we think will be a welcome addition across the board.

“It’s very special to be recognized by AAPEX with the Environmental Impact Best Packaging Award. We try to be mindful with all Lucas Oil products, and as we continue to entrench ourselves in the installer world, we hope to progress the automotive industry on a broad scale to help the environment with initiatives like this, and more.”

Each year, AAPEX serves as the preeminent trade show for the automotive aftermarket, where businesses and potential clients from around the world converge to see the latest products from across the industry. It’s here where Lucas Oil grew from a fledgling company to the global leader in oil and lubricant products, and its continued presence at the show has continually provided an opportunity to further expand the company’s reach, while simultaneously occupying the role as one of the industry’s most influential brands.

"Overall, the AAPEX show is very important to Lucas Oil,” said Dave Wonser, Director of Business Intelligence. “It offers us a great opportunity to showcase new products to existing partners as well as connect on strategies to help drive sales. It also provides us with a platform to bring awareness of the Lucas Oil brand to industry professionals who may not already be familiar with the benefits of our product offering."
