Chicago-based car care provider, Turtle Wax announced its entry into the Indian market on Friday. The brand has launched its complete range of appearance products for both four-wheelers and two-wheelers for every surface including paintwork, wheels, tires, upholstery, and plastic, among others.
A family-owned company with deep roots in Chicago, Turtle Wax stands for innovation in car care, and for nearly 75 years has pursued products that transform how consumers take care of their vehicles. Turtle Wax’s legacy dates to 1944 when Company founder Ben Hirsch invented “Plastone”, the world’s first liquid auto polish in his family bathtub.
In 1946 when Plastone was renamed as Turtle Wax, the iconic brand was founded and has since then emerged as a household name in more than 120 countries around the world. According to the company, it is set to offer a range of professional, ceramic and hybrid solutions with appearance products for both four-wheelers and two-wheelers for every surface including paintwork, wheels, tires, upholstery, and plastic, among others.
Commenting on the India entry, Mr Denis John Healy, Turtle Wax’s Executive Chairman, (and Hirsch’s grandson) said: “Our entry into the Indian market adds a fantastic new chapter to our history. We are thrilled to be here and offer our world-class product suite to weekend warriors and enthusiasts alike. India is unarguably the most vibrant and diverse automobile market in the world. This country not only holds great promise for the business but is of strategic significance to our global trade channels. We are keen to adapt and invest in India’s people and their car care culture more than anything else. With the most innovative global products, we are confident of Turtle Wax’s position as one of the leading car care brands in India.”
