DETROIT (August 31, 2007) - Helm Incorporated, the Highland Park based specialty
fulfillment company announced the one-millionth order on www.helminc.com. This
website, developed and administered by Helm, is the nation's largest source for factory-
authorized owner and service information.
"We are pleased to reach this milestone," said Michele Wacht, marketing manager." Since the launch of the website our goal has been to provide an ordering channel for
customers to obtain materials on products in need of service or repair. Helminc.com
provides a central, convenient source."
The website is frequented by automotive and motorcycle dealers, aftermarket repair
facilities, vehicle owners and Do-It-Yourselfers. Dating back over 50 years, Helm offers
