With the help of his family, an eggbeater and a tin bath, Frank Meguiar, Jr. creates his first bottle of furniture polish in his garage in 1901. Each night enough polish would be made to fulfil orders for the following morning and pay for that day’s groceries. The operation’s grown more than a little since.
With the rising popularity of horseless carriages, Frank Meguiar, Jr. spotted that the mainly wooden automobiles were coated with the same finishes that were applied to furniture. An obvious transition soon followed leading to a long-standing relationship in the automotive industry.
Frank Meguiar, Jr. continues to develop class-leading cleaning products, always staying true to his belief that he would never sell a product unless he was convinced it was the very best on the market. Four generations later that belief remains.
Following the passing of Frank Meguiar, Jr. in 50s the family business is taken to the next level by his three sons. Maurice, the eldest, managed sales while Kenneth, the youngest, was in charge of production. It was Malcolm in the middle who shared his late father’s love for formulating and it was this passion that led Malcolm to create many of the company’s existing products including Meguiar’s Cleaner Wax – the number one selling liquid car wax in America.
In 80s Meguiar’s opens up offices across the globe, introducing the ever-expanding product range to a whole new audience.
Nowadays Meguiar's celebrates over 110 years of success of car cleaning products all over the world. And our team Escape6 is proud to be a partly member of this family.
