Since its beginning in 1976, Color Glo has become the recognized leader in the mobile automotive reconditioning industry. Founded by Everett C. Smith to address the growing demands of an industry that was growing each year, Color Glo has from the very beginning been the benchmark of this industry. Having been involved in the reconditioning industry for years, Mr. Smith knew that the existing products were not of the quality he would need to build a strong and successful brand. Although it was very costly and challenging, he decided that for his company, the only direction that would satisfy his pursuit of perfection and quality was to formulate his own line of exclusive and proprietary products.
Color Glo opened their own research and development labs to formulate the best products in this industry. He hired chemists that had strong backgrounds in new product formulation and research and over a period of several years his team developed the original Color Glo proprietary line of restoration and repair products. Today the original 8 products in the line have grown to over 100 different and unique products. Each of the over 100 products are developed and selected to work seamlessly within the Color Glo system.
In the last 40 plus years Color Glo has grown from an idea to an International operation that encompasses the globe. The corporate headquarters are located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Over the years, Color Glo has been recognized repeatedly by National and International publications for the excellent products, value and quality of this services that they offer.
Color Glo is also proud to have received patents in this industry including a process patent for using the Color Glo process and products in aircraft.
In 2006, Color Glo became the first and only ISO 9001 Certified Company in the industry.
