“We are excited to enhance our product portfolio with these two leading brands,” said Jay Burkhart, president of TRICO Group. “The filter category is a natural complement to our wiper products as our ‘Maintenance’ offering, while Autolite adds to our ‘Repair Parts’ product line of fuel pumps, water pumps and lift supports.”
