Maker Trico

Maker Details The idea for wiper blades and rods came about in 1917 in Buffalo, NY, where JR Oishei,driving a car, and a cyclist collided on a rainy night. Oishei did not want this to happen again and vowed to improve driving conditions in bad weather. He founded the Tri Continental Corporation, later shortened to Tri-Co. Is currently one of the leading wiper systems today.
