UKS business partnership with TRICO doubles in size in a year

Date: Monday 20 June 2022

UKS has been working in partnership with TRICO for a little over three years, however the past year has seen a huge growth in sales of the TRICO blade offerings and this month alone has been a record-breaking sales month.

UKS Managing Director Geoff Jones commented:

“We have a great relationship with TRICO and wiper blades fit very comfortably with our product offering portfolio. Our TRICO order book is extremely healthy and growing on a monthly basis. There’s no doubt of the quality of the product and brand is globally recognised. Indeed, TRICO invented the wiper blade, so after 100 years of manufacturing, I’m confident that we have the very best brand and product behind us at UKS.”

TRICO is a global leader in wiper blade technology and provides specifically designed and engineered blades as Original Equipment to vehicle manufacturers and motorists alike. With a market share in more than 50 countries, millions of TRICO wiper blades are fitted to vehicles every year.

All TRICO wiper blades are engineered and manufactured to perform under the most severe weather conditions, and a wide range of product options give motor factors, retailers and consumers a comprehensive choice.

UKS distribute five of the TRICO product ranges:

  • TRICO Exact Fit - Original equipment (OE) style fitment and performance, engineered to fit straight onto the vehicle with no loose clips or adaptors
  • TRICO Flex - A compact range of multi-clip beam blades, ideal for smaller retail shops and workshops
  • TRICO Neoform - Upgrade conventional wipers to the latest beam blade technology
  • TRICO TX - Heavy duty wiper blades, specifically engineered in longer lengths and with higher strength steel for fitment to large commercial vehicles
  • TRICO Rear – Universal line of rear wipers to fit both beam and integral wiper arms, employing advanced beam technology

Area Sales Manager UK & Ireland, Andy Taylor, said:

“During these difficult times, I’m delighted to see how UKS has increased its TRICO sales in the UK. We are here to provide our trade customers and ultimately the consumer with top quality wiper blades and we continue to update our product offerings across the globe. UKS believes in the same ethics as we do at TRICO and our partnership will only grow together.”

UKS’s General Manager, Harry Jones added:

“We have also recently included a range extension for TRICO, bringing in TRICO Rear. This important range has just 12 SKU's, all of which are multi-kit blades, covering over 85% of all rear blade sales. These wipers come with a flexible adaptor, designed for an easy fit.”
