First Brands (Formerly TRICO Group) has acquired Brake Parts Inc and Champion Laboratories Inc.
With 10 SKUs in the product line, it covers 31.5 million domestic and import vehicles in operation.
The TRICO Rear program includes an advanced connection system that reduces SKU count from 27 to 11, while increasing coverage and consolidating space.
The TRICO Maxx beam blade program is supported by a national advertising campaign that features a reliable and trusted dog named Maxx.
Designed for automotive technicians, counter professionals and consumers, the guide provides details on all TRICO wiper blades and other offerings, which are listed by product line, vehicle year, make and model.
This line is engineered to fit classic car models ranging from the 1940s to the 1960s. TRICO Classic wiper blades are designed with a silver finish and metal frames to resemble the original equipment blades on these vehicle models when they came off the factory line.
The new line features a “one-fit” connection system, eliminating the need for adaptors.
In addition to opening several facilities throughout North America, the company has spent the past century expanding globally, opening divisions in the United Kingdom, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and China.
The new part numbers fit popular 2006-’17 year models of Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Lexus, Saab, Scion and Toyota vehicles. The company also has introduced four new Exact Fit beam wiper blades.
Beginning as one of the pioneers in the industry, today the company says it produces one of the most comprehensive offerings of wiper blade solutions across the consumer, trade and OEM channels.
