WHO WE ARE
AutoTex was born in New Jersey in 1991 under the name Wipers Express, which matured to Wexco Industries. We continued to develop into a full engineering and manufacturing company for heavy duty wiper systems. In late 2015, AutoTex spun off from parent Wexco Industries.
We are a fresh name in the industry with a rich history full of experience and expertise. Our lineage, proficiency, and passion for this company and brand will continue to carry us and our partners to new heights!
FUN FACT: AutoTex is proud to be a certified Family Owned and Woman Owned Company! The lady in pink (pictured above) is our loving and fierce leader, Paul Lombard, that pioneered the business in 1991... selling wiper blades from gas station to gas station off of the New Jersey Turnpike!
