To the Editor,
The regular features published in Automotive News Europe illustrating the suppliers to new models are always interesting. Almost invariably, however, they overlook the sealing system supplier of the vehicles profiled. As public relations advisor to the Standard Products Company, we have noted this oversight.
Standard Products supplies 100 percent of the vehicle seals on the Rover 75, featured on page 12 of the 21 June issue. But nowhere are seals mentioned or shown in the illustration.
As a component, seals are certainly comparable in significance to the others shown.
For future profiles, I hope you will question the automakers as to the source of their vehicle seals.
