Nexen first began in 1942 and was initially named Heung-A Tire Company. After 14 years of providing tires for drivers in Korea, the company was recognized as the first official Korean tire company. The tire company continued to be renamed until finally, in 2000, we decided to name the company after the combination of these two simple words: next and century. This is because we wanted the brand to reflect “determination to prepare for the future and to drive a better tomorrow”. If you are looking for a quality tire for your vehicle, consider Nexen Tire.
