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.

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.
