A Passion For Perfection

The passion for perfection that distinguishes today's myriad of Meguiar's products is rooted in a family heritage that reaches back several generations. It began in an age when the automobile itself was something of a curiosity-and the concept of caring for a vehicle's finish had many miles to go.

This was when Frank Meguiar began his quest for new and better ways to provide protection and beauty for people's most prized possessions. Turning his garage in Evansville, Indiana into a laboratory and production plant, his experiments soon produced the first products to display what would eventually become a brand recognized by automotive enthusiasts around the world. A brand that now has the highest customer loyalty of any car wax in America, according to a major independent study.

In the early days, not only did all of Frank's products bear the Meguiar name, so did all of his employees. Equipped with an egg beater, the Meguiar children helped their father produce enough product each day to meet the following day's sales quota. Today, the breadth of our product line makes Meguiar's the most diversified company of its kind anywhere on Earth. Since 1901, Frank's first surface care solutions have expanded into a vast family of cleaners, polishes, waxes, conditioners, protectants and sealants. Whether they're for cars, boats, airplanes, furniture or other applications, you'll find our products in the hands of discriminating consumers and professionals worldwide.

Until the end of his life in 1950, Frank Meguiar remained committed to advancing the science of surface care. His dedication was twofold: relentless advances in technology, plus ongoing training in the latest techniques for applying those advances. Frank's son Malcolm has for many years been intimately involved in continuing the company's technological initiatives. These efforts have become even more essential as protecting new generations of lighter, stronger synthetic materials and surface coatings requires close cooperation with the manufacturers who develop and use them.

Caring for new kinds of finishes also helps drive Meguiar's extensive training programs. Consumer literature, plus professional schools, data sheets and educational videos help disseminate information wherever our products are used. And our massive Mobile Training Center turns a custom-built tractor trailer into a multi-media-equipped classroom on wheels.

As Meguiar's approaches a full century of serving its customers, we've evolved a lot from those early days in Frank's garage. Our headquarters is now in Southern California. And we operate a highly automated factory in Nashville, Tennessee. But some things really haven't changed. President and CEO Barry Meguiar and Chairman Mike Meguiar still run a family business that now spans more than four generations. And most important of all, we're as committed as ever to providing our growing family of customers with even more effective solutions to their surface care needs.
