SIGNATURE AUTOMOTIVE RELEASES EXCLUSIVE OE CAMRY SUNROOF

OE-Based Sunroof Now Available for Aftermarket Application

WIXOM, MICHIGAN… Signature Automotive Products, a leading supplier of sunroofs and open-air systems, has released for sale its first OE-based Toyota sunroof for aftermarket applications. The base sunroof kit for the Toyota Camry and other larger vehicles is manufactured in the U.S. by Aisin World Corp. of America, the exclusive global manufacturer of sunroofs for the Toyota Camry. The OE-based units, available exclusively to Signature customers, can be ordered immediately for delivery by January 19, 2015.

The Aisin 910-OE Sunroof incorporates the OE factory sunroof manufactured in Aisin’s certified Marion, Illinois, factory and designed to exacting specifications for Camry models from 2012 forward. The unit includes the OEM roof and B-pillar bracing for a quick fit into the Camry side rails, an OE-integrated one-piece electronics module and motor, and the OE-integrated wind deflector. Other OE features include Aisin’s whisper-quiet nylon belt drive and contoured OE-manufactured glass to fit the Camry roof line precisely like the factory installation.

According to Signature President Dave Gienapp, the company has added certain aftermarket components designed expressly to ensure the aftermarket version mirrors the function and fit of the OE unit. The two-button switch emulates the factory switch and mounts in front of the overhead console exactly like the factory switch. A steel trim ring and headliner seal are also designed for quality and ease of installation. The sunroof glass provides a full 670 sq. in. glass area, delivering a truly exceptional open-air driving experience.

“Signature restylers can now offer the same factory sunroof as installed in millions of Toyota Camrys, with the same safety-focused and tested OEM roof and B-pillar bracing,” stated Dave Edmondson, Signature’s VP of sales. “Toyota dealers can now enhance their vehicles with confidence with an OE-based product to suit their customers’ and sales needs. The Camry OE sunroof is unique to Signature and available only to Signature’s restylers. With the exclusive Aisin 910-OE product, Signature restylers can increase their penetration into Toyota dealerships and greatly expand their market share,” he added.

“Our restylers should be able to achieve superior margins with this premium product that replicates the factory offering,” noted Gienapp. “By leading sales calls with a widely accepted OE sunroof, restylers can offer their other products, including Roadwire leather interiors, and achieve greater volumes as well as incremental sales and profits.”

Signature Automotive Products is widely recognized as a premier manufacturer of sunroofs and the myTop® electric convertible for Jeep Wranglers.  For more information, call 248.624.6011.
