Federal-Mogul Corporation: Newly Enhanced ANCO Profile Beam Blades Offer
Best-in-Class Performance, Nearly 100-Percent Coverage With Just 12 SKUs
Southfield, Michigan, October 17, 2013. ANCO^® Wipers has introduced an
extensively enhanced range of ANCO Profile^® beam (flat) wiper blades with
several new features that help ensure best-in-class performance and provide
nearly 100-percent coverage of late-model vehicles with just 12 SKUs.
Manufactured by Federal-Mogul Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML), ANCO Wipers are "The
Clearest Choice in Wiper Blades(TM)" and the official wiper blade of the
National Hockey League^®.
New ANCO Profile wipers feature patented Articulated Contact^(TM) Technology,
which permits unrestricted flexing for more uniform pressure distribution and
improved conformance to today's curved windshields. Each Profile blade is
equipped with an integral, symmetrical spoiler that ensures increased down
force for exceptional blade-to-glass contact and includes the brand's
exclusive DuraKlear^® rubber compound for a consistent, clear wipe in a full
range of weather conditions.
The new ANCO Profile range enables automotive parts stores and vehicle service
providers to offer more than 98-percent coverage by carrying just 12 part
numbers. This exceptional coverage efficiency is the result of the brand's
KwikConnect^® Installation System and an innovative new connector. The new
connection system also offers an ultra-low-profile design that mirrors the
look of original equipment beam blades.
"ANCO Profile has quickly become a leading choice of consumers who want to
replace their OE beam blades or upgrade their vehicles to the latest
technology at an affordable price. We are extending our product leadership in
the beam blade category with these important new features that will benefit
consumers and the thousands of businesses that sell ANCO blades," said Mike
McKee, global product director, visibility, Federal-Mogul Vehicle Components
ANCO Profile wipers are now offered in attractive new retail packaging that
highlights key product features as well as the ANCO brand's status as the
official wiper blade of the National Hockey League. The packaging also
includes a more easily identified part number.
