Trico Products Expands TRICO Exact Fit® Rear Blade Line

(Rochester Hills, Michigan) – Trico Products, the leading innovator for wiper blade technology, is expanding its rear wiper coverage. TRICO® was the first to introduce integral rear blades to the aftermarket, and now is releasing five new TRICO Exact Fit® rear windshield beam blades to fit 2004 through 2014 models of Audi, BMW, Ford, Volkswagen and Volvo vehicles.

Available in August, the wipers will be offered in five arm designs including V-Notch, Cross Pin, Push Button, Pinch Tab and Trunnion. These new additions to the TRICO Exact Fit wiper blade line will expand coverage to an additional 2.2 million vehicles on the road today that are equipped with a rear beam blade.

“We’ve always leveraged our close relationships with OEMs to provide superior wiper blades that offer the same form, fit and function as original equipment,” said Rick Stempien, vice president of Aftermarket sales and marketing. “Now, we effectively broadened our innovative product line to further reach millions of vehicles.”

TRICO Exact Fit rear wipers provide critical back windshield visibility to maximize sight lines when driving becomes difficult. Designed with durable rubber and high-strength steel, TRICO Exact Fit rear wipers are available in lengths of 10 to 16 inches.

To accommodate the evolving Car Parc vehicle population, Trico Products developed the TRICO Exact Fit Factory Replacement Center™, a comprehensive program that includes beam, hybrid, conventional and rear blade styles to fit approximately 99 percent of vehicles on the road today. Blades are pre-assembled with the specific adaptor necessary for installation, eliminating multiple adaptors and complex instructions.

The TRICO Exact Fit Factory Replacement Center enables retailers and service technicians to easily stock and sell the complete line of TRICO Exact Fit blades and helps consumers find and install the right wiper blades with an attached application guide that lists the TRICO Exact Fit part number by vehicle make, model and year. Best-selling TRICO Exact Fit wiper blades have provided the precise replacement for blades originally equipped on vehicles since 1995.

For over 90 years, Trico Products has been one of the world’s largest manufacturers of wiper blade products and systems with major operations in Asia, Australia, North America, South America and the European Union.
