Valeo launches Compact Wiper blades Catalogue 2015-2016
Valeo Service UK has unveiled the Latest Compact wipers catalogue.
The Compact brand has been developed by Valeo and is categorised into three sub-brands to cover each technological segment of the market. The Compact range includes three sub ranges: Standard, Revolution and Evolution.
The Compact standard blade program includes 37 part numbers covering 90% of European vehicle applications. This greatly benefits stockists as it results in a reduced stock holding without compromising the number of vehicles covered. This ensures that a more reliable service can be provided and also improves stock rotation.
Meanwhile Compact Revolution comprises 10 part numbers covering 90% of the European car parc.
And finally, Compact Evolution is made up of 21 part numbers, providing 85% coverage to European vehicles.
A new flatblade has been produced for the Evolution range covering Citroen DS5 (2006/15>) and Ford Transit (2005/12>) vehicle applications.
Towards the end of the catalogue, a comprehensive cross referencing table can be found linking specific OE parts with the compatible Compact part number. Each product is listed by the vehicle’s make and model, making it easier to determine the appropriate part number.
Compact wiper blades are designed, manufactured and tested by Valeo engineers in its own European factory. Requiring minimal storage and providing a complete solution for a wide range of vehicle applications, Compact high quality wiper blades offer exceptional performance for Valeo customers.
As well as the Compact catalogue, Valeo provides an array of support services to distributors and installers of wiper systems including brochures, leaflets and display stands.
Covering all wiper blade technologies including conventional, flat blade and hybrid blades, Valeo supplies a variety of wiping solutions to the automotive aftermarket. These different ranges include the premium, OE-quality Silencio® brand, comprising more than 200 references of universal, specific-fit and hybrid (HBlade™) wiper blades.
