PREPARING FOR Y2K – Trevco to Introduce New Safety Products at Chicago Hardware Show



San Marcos, CA – (August 11, 1999) – Trevco, America’s leading supplier of safety fasteners, is poised to break new ground when it introduces two innovative Y2K safety products at the National Hardware Show in Chicago.


The California-based company will be promoting its Safety Lightsticks and Y2K Survival Kit. Both are aimed at mainstream American families and have been priced to fit their budgets.


The lightsticks are designed for use during blackouts, natural disasters and other emergency situations. They’re safe, cool to the touch and provide light for up to 12 hours. They also have great recreational value and can be used for a myriad of outdoor activities.


The survival kit contains enough of the three basic essentials – food, water and a blanket – to sustain one person for three days. It can be stored in the home, office or vehicle and is just right for back-to-school and students who are required to provide their own survival kits at the start of the new school year.


Vice president, Dean Reese, said that Trevco wanted to make the community aware that being prepared for any eventuality around the home needn’t cost the earth.


“We have deliberately kept the costs down on these two products because we want them to be affordable for the average family. People need to know that they don’t have to spend lots of their hard-earned dollars on preparedness, it can be done relatively inexpensively.


“Naturally, that’s also the message that we want to get across to buyers at the hardware show. People are worried about possible power outages at midnight on December 31st, but with our products on hand at least they can be assured of a reliable source of light, plus food and water.


“The lightsticks and survival kit are quality products that are priced right and our experience with them to date has been very positive,” he said.


Both products are already available through selected hardware chains in the west and Trevco hopes to gain a foothold in other parts of the country by introducing them at the hardware show.
