Wexco Industries Launches AutoTex PINK Wiper Blades, Joins in Fight Against Breast Cancer
Portions of Every Windshield Wiper Sale Go to NBCF
WEXCO Industries 'Makes America'
Pine Brook, New Jersey (September 28, 2009) – AutoTex PINK, a division of women-owned company WEXCO Industries, one of the nation's leading global suppliers of windshield wipers, has joined the fight against breast cancer by donating 10 percent of each sale of their windshield wipers to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
"As a women-owned company, AutoTex PINK is dedicated to 'Wiping Out Breast Cancer' with the aid of our customers and strategic partners," says Paula Lombard, company president. "Through this partnership, our goal is to support those affected by breast cancer, increase overall awareness for the disease and fund the ongoing research that will hopefully one day overcome this dreaded challenge."
Every three minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, while one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Because of these startling statistics, AutoTex PINK has taken a proactive role by donating to a foundation that offers free mammograms to women in need of financial assistance, increases awareness through education and helps fund research. Through this relationship, the NBCF and AutoTex PINK are offering "help for today, hope for tomorrow" to millions of American women.
In addition, to help spur the giving process among new customers, AutoTex PINK is now offering a 20 percent introductory discount on all online purchases at www.autotexpink.com, made during the month of October to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month. AutoTex PINK carries a full-line of traditional metal frame wipers as well as the new frameless style wipers found on many newer model vehicles. These high-performance wipers are designed to fit more than 98 percent of the vehicles on the road today.
