When a bicyclist and a National Roadster collided on the streets of Buffalo, NY, one rainy night in 1917, it was an impact felt around the world. Although the cyclist wasn’t seriously injured, the accident was enough that the driver, Buffalo theatre owner J.R. Oishei, vowed to improve bad-weather vision of motorists for generations to come.
Oishei’s Tri-Continental Corporation (later shortened to Tri-Co, then Trico), introduced its first windshield wiper, Rain Rubber, for the slotted, two-piece windshields found on many of the popular automobiles of the time. Today, Trico is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of windshield wiper systems, wiper blades and refills, with plants on five continents.
Designed and engineered with OE-affirming rigor and quality, Trico wiper products serve vehicle manufacturers, technicians and drivers everywhere. As a leader in the industry, Trico isn’t just committed to supplying the world with high-quality wiper products, but also to positively impacting the environment.
