Optimal UK is now distributing TRICO wiper blades, another addition to its extensive product range that is inclusive of light commercial vehicles.
The company has taken on ranges that include Exact Fit, Flex, Neoform and TX. All TRICO wiper blades are specifically-designed and engineered as original equipment (OE) to vehicle manufacturers. With a market share in more than 50 countries, millions of TRICO blades are fitted to vehicles every year.
Heavy duty products delivered to vehicle manufacturers are available to the aftermarket under TRICO TX – a complete range containing 21 references. The TX range offers robust, heavy-duty wiper blades for truck, bus and light commercial vehicle applications, offering quality performance in demanding environments. Blades are available in lengths of up to 1,000mm, and include all necessary adaptors for the widest vehicle coverage.
TRICO Senior Product and Brand Manager, Sam Robinson said: “We experienced an increasing demand for a mixture of heavy-duty wiper blades, alongside light commercial wipers, as many fleets now contain a variety of vehicles, ranging from small car-derived vans right through to articulated lorries. Offering one programme that covers the whole fleet, therefore, simplifies maintenance for fleet operators.
“With a comprehensive catalogue, smart packaging, and more part numbers to come, we also responded to feedback in developing bulk trade packs in busy trade and workshop environments, where retail packaging is not needed. Bulk packs help busy areas stock fast-moving blades in higher volumes, with minimal packaging wastage.”
As part of Optimal UK’s launch of TRICO, the TRICO web catalogue has been integrated into Optimal UK’s website. This tool is invaluable, as it finds the correct blades for any vehicle. Once vehicle details have been entered, the catalogue will list the blades available for that particular make and model. It’s possible that there are several options available; this is where various TRICO ranges can be looked at further.
