The firm says establishing the division is key in its long-term development plan to have self-representation for its products throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Milenco manufactures high-quality towing mirrors. The company has multiple patents and says its specialized aerodynamic engineering separates its Milenco Aero series towing mirrors within the product segment. The mirror’s clamps are designed to securely fit any towing vehicle model while the calculated wind resistance prevents vibration or shaking while in use.

Milenco Limited’s Chairman Nigel Milbank says the company is pleased to offer improved service and support for its customers in North America. He says establishing the North American division positively increases the firm’s capabilities compared to its previous reliance on third-party representation.

Glenn Lewis heads the new office, which is located at 1251 N. Eddy St., Suite 200 in South Bend, Ind. He can be reached at glenn@milenco.comor 574-360-5879.
