Trailgate Awarded Licensing For GM Corporate Logos and Brand Names

5 November 1999

Trailgate Corporation Has Been Awarded Licensing For The General Motors Corporation Collection of Corporate Logos and Brand Names

    SANTA CLARITA, Calif.--Nov. 4, 1999--The Trailgate Corporation, the makers of the original Trailgate Table which attaches to the back of virtually any pickup truck or sport utility vehicle, has signed a multi-year licensing agreement with General Motors Service Parts Operations that includes the GMC, Chevrolet and Cadillac brands and logos.
    Bill Ball, President of Trailgate Corporation, says, "We believe strongly in the General Motors product line, and I am pleased to be a part of the marketing of the General Motors, Chevrolet and Cadillac brands. This licensing agreement will allow us to penetrate further into the automotive aftermarket. We feel that the uniqueness of the Trailgate products and the built-in brand recognition of the GMC, Chevrolet and Cadillac names will prove to be an unbeatable combination. The GMC, Chevrolet and Cadillac officially licensed Trailgate Table and Trail-End-Cover will debut at the SEMA Show, November 2 to November 5, 1999, in Las Vegas."
    The Trailgate Table fits virtually any pickup truck or sport utility vehicle. The unit slides directly into any standard two inch trailer hitch receiver, has storage inside the table for eating and cooking utensils and has fishing pole/utility holders built right in. The Trail-End-Cover is the perfect fit when not using your Trailgate Table. The Trail-End-Cover slides right into the two inch hitch receiver to help keep dirt, water, and grime out and adds a refined custom look to the rear of any vehicle. Both products can be branded with the GMC, Chevrolet and Cadillac logos.
