January 4, 2013 – PINE BROOK, NJ – AutoTex PINK, a division of woman-owned WEXCO Industries, a leading global supplier of windshield wiper blades, has continued their efforts in the fight against breast cancer. For every one of their AutoTex Pink branded wiper blades sold, WEXCO makes a donation to the NBCF to fulfill their mission to provide mammograms for underserved women.
“As a woman-owned company, AutoTex PINK is dedicated to ‘Wiping OutBreast Cancer’ with the aid of our customers and strategic partners,” said Paula Lombard, WEXCO President and founder of AutoTex PINK. “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.”
Each of the first two years of the AutoTex Pink program, WEXCO raised enough funds from their sales for bronze sponsorships, but this year they doubled their previous years’ sales to achieve a Silver Level.
“I am ecstatic about AutoTex Pink raising enough for the National Breast Cancer Foundation to be a Silver Level Sponsor. Working towards the same goal with these other amazing companies makes a big difference in the lives of many women and their families” says Lombard. “AutoTex Pink has no intention of stopping- I am confident we will be a Gold Level Sponsor next year and continue on our own mission to ‘Wipe Out Breast Cancer.’”
