The new packaging scheme features a bold look with vibrant graphics, strong ATE branding, and clear product identification and application designation.
Dan Caciolo, Head of Product Management for Continental Independent Aftermarket Powertrain & Brake Systems, noted “We’ve changed the package design of our brake fluids to create a stronger continuity for the entire line and make it easier for our customers to recognize our high-quality products and branding.
