Ardex Laboratories Inc

Written by:

Ardex Laboratories is an Philadelphia, America based manufacturer of several different detailing and carwash products. The company was founded in 1950 bij Arron Goldman en Dexter. The current range offers a wide variety of products for several different stages in the detailing process.

Ardex Laboratories history

Ardex Laboratories was founded in the 1950’s by Arron Joseph Goldman, after a period of roughly 20 years where Arron Goldman developed products, fueled by his passion for nature and chemistry. Going door-to-door at this time, he sold his products and learned what the customers where looking for. White-walls where very difficult to clean that time, but with his specialized products he developed a product to clean them back to like-new. Along with Dexter, he eventually started a company that was devoted to automotive reconditioning products. This company was called Ardex (ARron and DEXter). Some of the products that where developed with this partnership where Topaz, New wave, Tungsten ceramic and Miami shine. They build an organization that has spread its sale over the United States and internationally in selected countries. The company is currently run by Steve Goldman.

Ardex Laboratories products

Ardex started out with just a handful of products but has grown into a company with a wide variation of products for different purposes. The collection offers products such as: compounds, precleaners, polishes, wheel cleaners, cleaning chemicals, waxes, sealants, fallout removers, glass cleaners, dressing, degreasers and coatings. Apart from the detailing products, the company also created carwash chemicals, used in larger volumes by carwash-installations.

Company information

The brand is fairly new to the European mainland and has a larger customer base in the United States.
