What’s the best selling product on the shelf?
I’m intensely proud and protective of all of my formulations and don’t like to categorise them – the anti-corrosion waxes sell in massive volumes so litre wise they’re in the running along with the coatings we make, but numbers of detailing products in units are very high

What piece of detailing kit do you think every detailer should have in their arsenal? (Excluding the obvious stuff like wash mitts, etc.)
Anti-corrosion waxes – It’s amazing the love that’s lavished on paint work while sadly the underside and hollow sections are forgotten and left – the aerosol applied waxes take minutes to do and its number 1 best thing to do to save a car from corrosion!! Detail your hollow sections clean the underside spray on wax do it every year– it saves your car’s life!

How much testing goes into making a product or choosing one to sell?
It’s my main reason for my business – we spend tremendous amounts of time and money testing against any competitor that produces well formulated products – we make sure we stay on our game.

If you could make a new product what would it be? Time

What are the main Values that drive the company? Quality and honesty no hype or bull.

What are the main Challenges the company faces? None really just keep going as we are we love it

Can we expect anything new from you?
I’m always underway with several ideas

Our determination to innovate and improve and not churn out me too poorly made products just for profit.

Where will the company be in say 10 years?
More products will be introduced.
