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.

      In the summer of 1974,
      link hidden, please login to view introduced a limited line of MacPherson Strut replacement cartridges, Gas-a-Just and Premium Heavy Duty shock absorbers to North America.   Celebrating the Past, Looking to the Future
      Surviving the turbulent ‘70s, KYB took full advantage of the economically booming ‘80’s, building a new 500,000-square-foot North American manufacturing plant in Franklin, Indiana just outside Indianapolis. The Franklin plant has been building OE and aftermarket shocks and struts since 1986. It continues to grow with the addition of a research and development lab, “clean” room for assembling shock valving, and most recently, being honored as the 2019 Industrial Plant of the Year for Wastewater Quality for reducing wastewater discharge 40% to the City of Franklin, KYB said.
      The next few decades saw growth, with a new office being opened in Addison, Illinois, in 1999, and the launch of highly popular MonoMax truck shock just after the Millenium, according to KYB. In 2008, the company debuted the Strut-Plus complete assembly, which it said helped to set the standard in aftermarket ride control.
      2011 saw the opening of a 275,000-square-foot distribution center in Greenwood, Indiana, just up the road from the Franklin manufacturing plant. The close proximity of these two locations allowed for quicker development and manufacturing of new applications and product lines, as well as faster distribution to customers throughout North America. The Addison, Illinois, office was moved to the Greenwood facility in 2014, completing the consolidation of administration, distribution, and manufacturing.
      As it celebrates the past and looks to the future, KYB said it continues to grow, with monthly announcements of additional applications and fitments, new product releases, such as KYB JAOS lift kit applications, and a new product line scheduled for release in 2025.

      I have an auto parts website, and most of the customers return the products because they don't fit their vehicles. I am looking for a solution. Is there any software or API where customers can check if auto parts fit their vehicle using the VIN number on the product, cart, or checkout page before placing an order?
      Here is the sample screenshot I want to achieve

      Christian Eckes finished second on Saturday afternoon for the third-straight season at World Wide Technology Raceway. The driver of the No. 19 Gates Hydraulics Chevrolet Silverado RST led for the 12th-straight race this season and delivered a 53-point performance, tied for the most of all drivers in the field. Eckes now holds a 31-point advantage in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series (NCTS) standings after 12 races with four remaining in the regular season.
      Eckes was near the front of the field for the entire weekend in St. Louis. On Friday afternoon, he posted the second-quickest lap in practice and qualified second. After cloudy and rainy skies gave way to bright sunshine on Saturday afternoon, Eckes fired off in the second position and threatened for the lead. A restart on lap 16 gave him the opportunity to briefly claim the race lead in the 12th event this season. While he battled a tight handling condition, Eckes maintained the second position for the balance of Stage 1 to earn nine points on lap 35.
      Crew chief Charles Denike elected to put four tires on Eckes’ Gates Hydraulics Chevrolet during the stage caution as varying strategies developed. Eckes restarted 12th on lap 42, but swiftly made his way back towards the front. He restarted eighth on lap 55 after a quick yellow and immediately rejoined the top five on lap 56. The balance on his Chevrolet was improved but a tight condition still lingered. He took the third spot on lap 64 and reclaimed second on lap 67. He collected another nine points at the end of Stage 2 on lap 70.
      During the second stage caution, Eckes took another set of fresh tires, but an issue on the left front relegated him to restart 12th on lap 78. Despite the setback, Eckes locked in and drove forward yet again to blitz his way back into the top five on lap 91. A long green flag run set up a cycle of green flag pit stops beginning at lap 118. Eckes pitted for the final time on lap 122 under green for four tires and a minor adjustment. He narrowly unlapped himself before the race’s final caution flew on lap 130. Eckes cycled to third for the event’s final restart on lap 137. He seized control of a podium position on the restart and moved into second on lap 150. Eckes began to reel in the leader in the waning laps but took the checkered flag in second position for his sixth top-five finish of the season.
      “The whole weekend was second,” Eckes said. “We practiced in second. We qualified second. Second in both stages and second in the race. Consistent on that, but just definitely let one slip there. I felt like we should have won that race and felt like we had the best truck, but just got behind on track position and never could get it back up. Just super hard to pass and here we are running second. Can’t thank Gates Hydraulics, NAPA, Chevrolet, and everybody enough, and Sparks Tire & Auto.”
      Start / Finish: 2 / 2
      Points Standing / Total: 1st / 506 pts. (+31)
      Next Race: Friday, June 28, Nashville Superspeedway
