TRICO and Autoparts UK enjoyed a record start to 2019, with the distributor celebrating a 65 per cent surge in sales of TRICO Exact Fit and Flex ranges, compared to last year.
Following constructive customer feedback, the original equipment manufacturer of wiper blades and systems revamped both ranges, the result of which was shallower packaging, which allows workshops to increase the number of wiper blades they can hang on display in their reception area.
TRICO UK and Ireland technical sales representative, Andy Taylor, believes the evolution of ranges, like Exact Fit and Flex, will help secure more business between both parties for years to come, as well as new developments.
He explained: “The relationship between TRICO and Autoparts UK continues to go from strength-to-strength, as we address and develop solutions to meet the needs of customers.
“To coincide with our development push, we are thrilled to announce that a brand new wiper blade series will be launched later this year, so watch this space.”
Autoparts UK, meanwhile, is one of the fastest-growing motor factor groups in the UK, employing more than 150 staff across 12 sites throughout Scotland and England.
Back in April, Autoparts UK enjoyed A Night at the Carnival, a trade show held in Glasgow, which featured workshop equipment, components and tools.
On the night itself, sales of TRICO wiper blades were strong and received outstanding feedback from attendees.
In addition, Andy presented a TRICO Flex stand to Autoparts UK’s Brian Telfer, who accepted a prize on behalf of workshop customer, Mark McAdam.
Autoparts UK group factor manager, Craig McCracken, praised TRICO: “It is our overriding aim to make life as easy as possible for our independent workshop customers, and the TRICO range fits perfectly into this strategy.
“The range is versatile, and as one comes to expect from TRICO, it is of exceptional quality.”
Craig added that identifying the correct wiper blades can be a “major headache” for some workshop customers, but TRICO makes that process “simple”.
