History Of Beaver Stripes & Molding Supply
As Presented by Trudy Bellingrodt. Thank you Trudy!
Beaver Stripes was started by Vincent Beaver in the late 1970's, in the Phoenix area. The business consisted mainly of selling Pinstriping Tape & Rivet on Body Side Molding (remember this was the 70's), to Installers. In 1982 it was bought by Wolf & Trudy Bellingrodt. who operated the business for the next 25 Years. Accessories were added to the inventory, such as Roof Racks, Running Boards, Car Wings (Spoilers) and other Small Automotive Accessories.
In 1992 Beaver Stripes purchased the Competing store "Trik Trim", in the east valley, (Tempe AZ), and acquired the "3M" Automotive Trim Distributorship, along with a complete line of Detail Products from "Production Car Care Products". Beaver Stripes Distributed products from both stores and two mobile trucks that called on Body Shops, Detail Shops and Dealerships in the Phoenix Valley.
Beaver Stripes doubled in size when Vinyl Signs were added in the early 90's. But in 2002 the Trik Trim store was closed and everything was moved to and sold through the McDowell Ave Store.
Wolf passed away a few years later and health issues caused Trudy to sell the business to Michael White.
