A hundred years on and Trico continues to be trusted by OE manufacturers to deliver wiper blades and full wiper systems on various commercial vehicles, including trucks, coaches and agricultural equipment.
The same heavy duty products delivered to vehicle manufacturers are available to the aftermarket under the Trico TX brand – a complete range now containing 21 references, offering full heavy duty and LCV parc coverage.
The TX brand offers robust, heavy-duty wiper blades for truck, bus and LCV applications, offering quality performance in demanding industrial environments, available in lengths up to 1000mm, and including all necessary adaptors for the widest vehicle coverage.
Trico product and brand manager, Sam Robinson, said: “We have experienced an increasing demand for a mixture of heavy duty wipers alongside light commercial wipers, as many fleets now contain a variety of vehicles ranging from small car-derived vans right through to articulated lorries. Therefore offering one programme that covers the whole fleet simplifies maintenance for fleet operators.
“Whilst conventional blades still remain king on heavy duty vehicles, light commercial vehicles are now being fitted more and more commonly with beam blades, so we have responded rapidly to also introduce these to our commercial programme, as we expect demand for these to rise significantly within the commercial sector.
“With a new catalogue, new packaging and more part numbers, we have also responded to feedback in developing bulk trade packs in busy trade and workshop environments, where retail packaging is not needed and bulk packs help busy areas stock fast moving blades in higher volumes, with minimal packaging wastage.”
