Delkor® proves yet again why it is one of the top automotive battery brands in the market. The brand was awarded the prestigious Korean Standard Quality Excellence Index (KS-QEI) award in the automotive battery category for the 17th consecutive year since 2006.

The KS-QEI is Korea’s only comprehensive index of consumer satisfaction and expert evaluation. The Association surveys consumers and industry experts on their satisfaction and experience with different products and services and measures results against two indices – Usage Quality Index and Emotional Quality Index. The Usage Quality Index is based on performance, reliability, durability, stability, usability, and accessibility whereas the Emotional Quality Index is based on brand image, brand awareness and novelty. Delkor batteries has once again successfully met these criteria and emerged with top scores this year.

Delkor batteries are manufactured by Clarios Delkor Corporation, a global leader in advanced energy storage solutions. Speaking about the recent award, the Vice President and General Manager North Asia at Clarios, S.J Won, said, “it is a great honour to be selected as the No. 1 automotive battery in the KS-QEI for 17 consecutive years.  A big thank you to our customers who have put their trust and recognition in Delkor batteries.  Clarios Delkor Corporation will continue to deliver reliable, safe, and quality vehicle batteries, providing peace of mind and comfort to anyone who drives a vehicle with a Delkor battery in it.”

Delkor batteries are exclusively distributed by R&J Batteries in New Zealand and Australia. Revealing more about R&J Batteries’ experience distributing Delkor batteries, Stuart Hamilton, Chief Executive Officer at R&J Batteries said, “we have distributed Delkor Batteries for close to 25 years in Australasia.

“The fact that Delkor has won such a prestigious quality award for 17 consecutive years is testament to why Delkor is the best battery made in South Korea, and one suitable for the conditions in New Zealand and Australia,” added Hamilton.
