We are the UK’s largest manufacturer and supplier of professional vehicle cleaning products to the trade. Our customer base is large and varied. For example, thousands of car dealers, hauliers, valeters, mechanics, taxi firms, bus companies and plant companies all use our products every day.
We develop and manufacture all of our own products and distribute them exclusively through an international network of franchisees. We currently have over 230 franchisees world-wide.
