   A Brief Description of the Products Manufactured by Meguiar


Meguiar started as a small family business for furniture polish. Frank Meguiar used to make these polish bottles at the back of the garage in his house. The business started one bottle at a time, and a century later, the variety of the products produced was beyond the garage's capacity. A hundred years and three generations later, the product line varied from automotive polish to marine polish. Let us discuss the broad categories of products produced and the independent products.

   Cleaning And Waxing Products for Marine


In the 1950s, there was mass production of fiberglass boats. Due to the PVA agent used, the surfaces were dull. Malcolm Meguiar stepped in and, like his father, worked around with different polishes and cleaners to create the perfect product for which Meguiar was known. He came up with a mold-release wax that changed the FRP industry forever. This wax was a hit then, and even after 60 years, it has a name. This wax provided a gloss that no other cleaning product did. So, eventually, all boat owners turned towards Meguiar for ultimate cleaning solutions.

Newer products were introduced. Car, shampoo, car polish, buffers, power buff, and a lot of other things. After conquering the terrain, they made polish and other stuff for marine automotives.
