Trico celebrates 100 years with range additions


Trico, the world’s leading windscreen wiper blade developer and supplier, has some exciting new product developments for this year and with 100 years leading the wiper market the company has unrivalled experience and expertise available to its trade customers.

Trico has introduced additional new rear and hybrid blades to reinforce the comprehensive Exact Fit programme, which offers long-lasting performance, ensuring motorists are comfortable and can see clearly out of their windscreens.

Trico is the first to launch a 300mm length hybrid blade to the aftermarket. Fitting the passenger side of the Nissan Note Mk 2 (2013 onwards), it gives customers the original hybrid styling but with improved performance over the Original Equipment blades by utilising the Trico beam blade substructure rather than a conventional blade substructure.

There are also six new Trico Exact Fit Rear wiper blades providing critical rear windscreen visibility in today’s aggressive driving environment. These are designed to fit unique rear integral and beam wiper arms, with these new references covering more than 20 late model vehicles.

The complete Trico Exact Fit wiper blade programme provides original factory fit, style and function for all vehicle types and is available in conventional, beam and hybrid designs.
Easy-to-install, thanks to a pre-assembled connector, the range is sold in single packs, as opposed to vehicle-specific pairs, vastly reducing the number of stock keeping units required to less than 150 – instead of an excess of 200.

Product and Brand Manager, Sam Robinson, said: “The Trico Exact Fit programme is continually being updated and developed to offer coverage of the very latest vehicle applications, allowing retailers and garages to service 99% of all vehicle applications directly from stock. These latest additions to the Trico Exact Fit range, including unique blades not available in any other aftermarket programme, demonstrating our commitment to keeping Trico stockists up to date with the very latest products and the most comprehensive vehicle coverage.

“There is a great deal to look forward to with Trico while celebrating our centenary year, so watch this space. We look forward to seeing you at one of the aftermarket shows where we will be exhibiting this year,” concluded Sam.
