Leading Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers ECCO Group and CRC Industries Exhibit Together at AAPEX in Booth #4607


WARMINSTER, PA--Oct. 27, 2011 -- ECCO Group and CRC Industries, Inc., member companies of the Berwind Industrial Products Group, will share an increased 1600 square foot booth space at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) from November 1-3, 2011.

AAPEX is the automotive aftermarket's largest trade show of the year and is attended by more than 100,000 automotive professionals from around the world. "This show provides an excellent opportunity to interact with buyers, showcase our new products and programs and build relationships with our customers all at a single venue," says Louis Fresta, vice president of sales and marketing at CRC. "We are celebrating 40 years of CRC BRAKLEEN®, the original aerosol brake parts cleaner and category leader, and we have a lot of exciting things planned for the show this year. It's the perfect time for CRC to team up with our sister company, ECCO."

In honor of BRAKLEEN's 40th birthday, CRC will feature the #81 BRAKLEEN BimmerWorld BMW 328i at the front entrance of booth #4607. The BRAKLEEN car raced in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series and BimmerWorld took the car to a podium finish at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California.

CRC has sponsored BimmerWorld Racing throughout 2011 and the team has played a key role in the company's print, web and social media campaigns for BRAKLEEN. BimmerWorld team owner, James Clay, says, "We are genuine users and advocates of CRC automotive maintenance chemicals. We only partner with manufacturers of products that we trust enough to use ourselves, and we know we can always rely on CRC for superior quality and to keep our race cars running at peak performance."

Clay and other BimmerWorld drivers will be signing autographs in the CRC/ECCO booth at AAPEX, and celebrity NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Ken Schrader will also make a guest appearance on Tuesday, November 1st from 2:00-4:00 pm.
