Founded by Frank Meguiar Snr in 1901, Meguiar’s Inc started as a simple furniture polish manufacturer run out of the garage of Frank’s Indiana home. Upon relocating to Southern California in 1913, Frank was inspired by California’s emerging car culture – prompting him to focus on Meguiar’s Inc’s range of professional products. From there, Meguiar’s has grown into one of the world's leading surface care specialists – polishing the world's planes, trains and automobiles ever since. Frank was succeeded by son, Malcolm Meguiar, followed by grandson Barry Meguiar – with Meguiar’s Inc remaining a family-owned company until the mid 2000s, before ultimately amalgamating with 3M in 2008.
Australian’s were officially introduced to Meguiar’s in 1990, when Bruce Morrison launched Meguiar’s Australia. As sole owner and Managing Director, Morrison morphed the company into MotorActive in 2007, to better represent the company’s expanding portfolio of premium automotive brands. Today, MotorActive remains 100% Australian owned and operated, and a key supplier (including Meguiar’s) to some of Australia’s biggest automotive retailers and one of the leading companies in the automotive aftermarket segment.
