Tint World® Announces New Partnership with Rostra
National Automotive Styling Centers™ franchise teams with national auto accessory manufacturer.
May 10, 2018 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, Florida - Tint World® Automotive Styling Centers™, a leading auto customization and window tinting franchise, has partnered with Rostra Accessories, a leading manufacturer of aftermarket auto accessories, to expand its product offerings.
“Rostra Accessories is one of the leading manufacturers of cruise controls, backup cameras and parking assistance systems,” said Charles Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World®. “Not only will this partnership give our stores more product offerings, but Tint World® customers will have access to a wide variety of new safety and convenience products to choose from.”
The largest supplier of cruise controls and automotive accessories in the Norh American aftermarket, Rostra Accessories produces a variety of specialty aftermarket add-ons for automobiles, including new technologies that integrate cameras into the vehicle to assist with backing up, obstacle detection, parking assistance and dashboard recording. Rostra has recently introduced a complete line of new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 111 (FMVSS 111) comliant cameras that adhere to this new camera requirement effective May 01, 2018.
“This is our first partnership with a multi-chain retail outfit, and we chose Tint World® because of their reputation and reach,” said Pete Kallgren, president of Rostra Accessories. “By partnering with their stores, we can help them expand the products available to consumers, particularly in the realm of cruise controls and other specialty products. A lot of people don’t realize that if your car doesn’t have cruise control, you have the ability to add it with a quick, cost-effective installation. So now if you come to Tint World® to get a new stereo system, window tint, or paint protection, you can also get a cruise control while you’re at it.”
As part of the partnership, Tint World® franchisees will be able to select from Rostra’s wide array of cruise controls, after-market cameras and LED lighting to sell in their stores. Both franchise owners and customers will benefit from the expansion of options available to consumers, specifically with custom and OEM solutions.
“Loren [Mikesell] from Rostra was integral in helping setup this partnership,” Bonfiglio said. “We love working with vendors who understand what we bring to the market and that know they can develop new business opportunities with their products by teaming up with Tint World®.”
