Autoglym started in 1965 with 8 products for both bodywork and wheels. The company started out in Welwyn Garden City. In 1978 they started expanding to Scandinavia, Holland and Germany. Autoglym expanded their range of product again in 1984. 1991 was the year the brand was rewarded with the Royal Warrants of Appointment to Her Royal Highness The Queen Mother and the Royal Waarant of Appointment to Her Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. The company moved house to Letchworth Garden City that year.

Autoglym products

Autoglym aims at creating products that perform well, with a modest price. Being a big international brand that serves over 40 countries, means they have the power to buy ingredients at a much bigger volume then most manufacturers. This allows them to push down the price at high quality ingredients. The current range of products includes shampoos, polishes, cleaners, wax, sealants, tools, merchandise, quick detailers, insect removers, glue removers, clay, headlight restoration kits, metal polish, dressing, convertible cleaners, engine cleaners and microfiber towels.

Besides the Auglym brand, they also own Lifeshine.

Company information
