ANCO® Celebrates 100th Anniversary with the Return of 'Big Yellow'


Recommended Posts

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ANCO® Wipers, one of Federal-Mogul Motorparts' quality brands, will mark the 100th anniversary of The Anderson Company on March 1st with the return of an iconic part of its past: "Big Yellow," the bold, eye-catching display cabinet for shops and technicians.  Additionally, ANCO recently released a new conventional wiper blade for light vehicles, ANCO 97-series. 

Anco Big Yellow

Big Yellow was a unique display unit that revolutionized the way that wipers were displayed, sold and merchandised.  Now available for a limited time, this mobile display popular among shops and service stations during ANCO's early years serves as a nod to the longevity of the brand as well as an accessible way for technicians to pull the right ANCO wiper for easy installation or sale.  To obtain Big Yellow, shop owners may contact their supplier for more details. 

"ANCO has always been one of Federal-Mogul Motorparts' most recognized brands, and it's fitting that we are able to pay homage to our past by reintroducing Big Yellow to the market," said Michael Proud, vice president of marketing, Americas, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.  "We also look forward to kicking off our next 100 years by creating a fresh, modern look for our brand, and are excited to have technicians, shop owners and DIYers alike taking a new look at the ANCO brand and the spectrum of products that we have to offer."   

ANCO has long led the way and offered premium replacement wiper blades, refills, washer pumps and wiper arms for passenger cars and commercial vehicles.  Recently, the ANCO brand released a new series of conventional wiper blades for light vehicles, ANCO 97-Series wipers, that offer complete conventional coverage across 97 per cent of vehicles in operation (VIO) in North America, in a size range from 12" – 22", 24", 26" and 28".  In keeping with ANCO's long history of engineering innovation, each wiper is manufactured with Duraklear® Plus, an exclusive, advanced rubber compound to provide consistent, streak-free performance, maintainable at highway speeds.  These wipers are also outfitted with Redi-Fit™ connection system that eliminates the use of loose-pack connectors for fast, easy installation.

ANCO was founded as The Anderson Company by John W. Anderson in South Bend, Ind., in 1918.  Initially, it developed, produced and marketed a range of automotive products, including "Hot Spot" manifold gaskets, ball thrust bearings, and timers, all for the original Ford Model T.  Eventually, the company began experimenting with wiper blades, and by the early 1930s, were producing replacement wipers and arms at large volumes, including for military applications.  Federal-Mogul Motorparts' parent company, Federal-Mogul Corporation (now Federal-Mogul LLC), acquired the ANCO brand in 1998.

      Optronics International, a Tulsa, Oklahoma-based manufacturer of vehicle harnesses, electronic control systems and LED lighting for the global transportation industry, kicked off its 50th-anniversary celebration with the announcement that it will be moving its North American headquarters into a new 200,000-square-foot facility on a 17-acre campus.
      Accompanying the announcement was the introduction of a new 50th-anniversary logo and a newly revised corporate website.
      Details of the new facility, logo, website and other related developments will be presented to the industry at Optronics booth 5191 during NTEA Work Truck Week 2022, scheduled for March 8–11 in Indianapolis.
      “Fifty years is a milestone that few companies ever achieve,” said Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International. “I’m happy and proud to say that Optronics has enjoyed five decades of continuous growth throughout a myriad of economic cycles as well as the current pandemic with its related supply chain challenges.”
      Established in 1972, the company has thrived, but Johnson points to the most recent decade as Optronics’ most pivotal, asserting that the company dramatically altered the competitive landscape in the commercial-vehicle lighting and harness business, inexorably disrupting the status quo in the process.
      “Our 2020 acquisition of USA Harness alone made Optronics one of only a few manufacturers capable of fully serving the light-, medium- and heavy-duty commercial-vehicle industry with both lighting and harness technologies,” Johnson said. “This is just the beginning of the sea change that is to come.”
      With 700 staff members worldwide, Optronics will ultimately consolidate its three current Oklahoma-based operations into the new Tulsa facility and will maintain its Goshen, Indiana, location and its USA Harness manufacturing plant in Winnsboro, Texas.
      The Tulsa campus will serve as the company’s corporate headquarters, as well as a research and development lab, assembly plant and distribution hub, and will allow Optronics to immediately expand to accommodate rapid growth. 
      Optronics also has taken the occasion of its anniversary to highlight its updated web presence and the introduction of a revised Optronics USA Harness logo, which includes a representation of the company’s signature Glo-Light lamp as a central feature. Through the remainder of 2022, the logo also will include a “50 years” designation. 
      “We’re looking forward to first publicly celebrating our anniversary with staff, customers and industry contacts during Work Truck Week 2022,” said Marcus Hester, chief marketing officer for Optronics International. “Our interactive booth will feature our anniversary graphics, highlight lighting and harness displays and enable us to access interactive content.”
      Optronics’ website makes it easy for users to select and filter information on more than 3,000 of the industry’s most advanced lighting and harness product offerings, according to the company. The site also includes a 360-degree product-viewing feature that allows users to closely examine products from all angles while accessing technical and product data.
      The website includes more than 500 recently added items, including Optronics’ “Smoke Series” lamps, new trilingual packaging and a variety of multi-function lamps, DOT utility lamps and white LED lamp products. Optronics also has a number of unique new lighting solutions now under development. 
      All Optronics LED lamps come with Optronics’ no-hassle, one-diode lifetime warranty that will replace any lamp if even one diode fails. When Optronics’ LED lighting is purchased in conjunction with its patented USA Plus Harnessing, the entire system is protected by the no-hassle lifetime warranty.
      “Although we try to do it in every interaction, all of us at Optronics would like to offer our deepest and most sincere thanks to our customers,” Johnson said. “Not only have they made our first 50 years possible; they have made each of them a resounding success.”
      Optronics products are available in the United States and Canada through the company’s extensive

      link hidden, please login to view. (APH) recently celebrated the end of its 100th-Anniversary Sweepstakes promotion by announcing the winner of a new Polaris Ranger 1000.  Chase Harlow of Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Grand Forks, North Dakota, won the Polaris Ranger. His name was randomly drawn from more than 25,000 entries. 
      “Chase and the Lithia team are great supporters of Auto Value,” said Mark Larson, Auto Value Grand Forks store manager. “When I found out Chase won the Polaris Ranger, I couldn’t wait to tell him the exciting news.” 
      Originally planned to coincide with APH’s 100th anniversary in 2020, the 100th-Anniversary Sweepstakes promotion was postponed until last year due to the pandemic. The sweepstakes was open to all professional technicians, and entries were earned for every $100 invoice during the months of November and December.
      Additional entries also were available during APH’s summer tour, when its 1952 International Metro ice cream truck made an appearance at nearly 1,000 shops. 
      “The 100th-Anniversary Sweepstakes promotion and summer tour were huge hits and great ways to thank our loyal customers for playing import roles in APH reaching this incredible milestone,” added Tim Feddema, marketing manager at APH. “We look forward to another exciting year ahead and visiting as many markets as we can with the ’52 Metro. The smiles per gallon we receive while on tour are simply amazing.”
