The difference for the Meguiar's® brand has been the inborn passion for what we do; it fuels the driving force that moves us forward and exhilarates us every day. We view the company as much more than a business or an opportunity to make money; Meguiar'sproducts are a way to provide car crazy enthusiasts an opportunity to express their utmost pride with their vehicle and overall passion for the car hobby.
In the early years, Meguiar's Mirror Glaze polishes and waxes, intended for professional use, were primarily used by car manufacturers, car dealers, body shops and detailers. Most custom painters polished their customer's automobiles with Meguiar'sproducts, so the majority of cars put on display in car shows reflected finishes achieved with the use of Meguiar's professional-line products. As car shows became prevalent in the 60's, those attending began to recognize that the use of Meguiar's polishes was the key to create brilliant, high-gloss finishes.
Growing numbers of people began pressuring retailers to stock Meguiar's Mirror Glaze products. Compelled by the demands of these enthusiastic fans, the family formally introduced its Meguiar's brand of consumer automotive products in 1973, headed by current President of Meguiar's Inc. Barry Meguiar, the son of Malcolm Meguiar. Fast forward to today, the Meguiar's line of products still saturate the consumer marketplace, offering car care solutions for the hobbyist and the do-it-yourself lover alike.
