Global consumer products company Automotive Care Laboratories LLC (ACL) has reached an agreement with West Coast Customs to develop an expanding portfolio of car care products, fuel and oil additives, and other multiple products in adjacent categories, as the exclusive marketer and distributor for the branded portfolios. In addition to West Coast Customs Car Care, ACL owns other brands and licensing agreements in the automotive aftermarket.
According to Atticus Firey, CEO of ACL, the strategic implementation with West Coast Customs for the car care and engine oil additives categories reflects the company’s continued commitment to strategic value-based expansion. “We’re intensely focused on building out our global portfolio with well-known, respected brands, and our partnership with West Coast Customs is the epitome of such criteria.
