NIBCO Launches Distributor Promotion Tour for New Push-to-Connect Fittings


ELKHART, IN – NIBCO INC. announces its Wrot Racer “Start Me Up” promotion to celebrate its next generation of push-fit fittings it recently launched. The multi-faceted promotion centers around the Corvette Wrot Racer C8 which will be touring the United States, making stops at qualified dealers.

The “Start Me Up” promotion offers distributors a quick and easy way to stock up immediately on new Wrot Racer copper push fit fittings. Distributors who meet the minimum stock order requirement will receive a free marketing kit that includes POP merchandising.

NIBCO’s Wrot Racer Corvette began its tour at AHR Expo in Las Vegas on Jan. 31, before heading to the West Coast, making several stops along the way, including Phoenix and Los Angeles. The “Start Me Up” promotion runs until 2022.

“We are excited to have our Wrot Racer Corvette hit the road visiting qualified distributors across the United States,” said Ashley Martin, Executive Vice President, NIBCO INC. “This is a great opportunity for distributors to create additional coverage for their businesses and for all attendees to have fun!”

Introduced in 2021, Wrot Racer push fittings are a line of premium copper push fittings designed to join copper, CPVC-CTS, PEX and PE-RT (with stiffeners) for easy transition between piping systems. With a patented fitting design, installations are easily completed in seconds.

Wrot Racer push fit fittings are made with 99.9% pure copper. Naturally lead-free, the fittings exhibit antimicrobial properties and are resistant to dezincification, allowing safe and clean potable water connections for residential and commercial applications.

Available in sizes from 1/2″ to 1″, the lightweight and compact Wrot Racer fittings can be installed wet or dry and can handle applications up to 200 psi and 200 degrees. The new fittings feature stainless steel grip rings to ensure a secure connection. Wrot Racer fittings are ideal for installations in tight spaces and can also be removed and reused, thus avoiding the waste of materials.
