WIX® Filters Rolls Out 2016 Sales Promotions

Thursday, 28 January 2016

WIX® Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, has announced an extensive lineup of sales promotions for 2016. These programs are designed to increase customer sales, raise brand awareness and connect customers with experiences involving their love for racing and WIX.

“Our comprehensive lineup of sales and marketing promotions are designed to forge deeper relationships with our customers,” said Jennifer Gibson, brand manager for WIX Filters. “We’re always looking for new touchpoints and ways to help our customers build their businesses while continuing to reinforce and elevate the WIX brand. The 2016 program is a great mix of both of these goals.”

Three new promotions will be introduced quarterly in 2016, in addition to WIX’s existing programs (highlighted below): WIX Gnarly Filter Sale Sweepstakes, Microban/Cabin Air Filter Promotion and a Fleet Changeover Promotion. Additional information on the new programs will be released at the beginning of next year.
