Hi-Lustre’s History

Our Family's Tradition for Over 90 Years

Our founder, M.D. Hall, “Uncle Doc”, had a love for automobiles and chemistry. During the day, Doc sold motor oils, and at night he worked on his dream of creating car care products in his small home laboratory. In 1928, he developed a unique, high quality car wax, called “GLAX”. Doc soon established the Hi-Lustre Products Company in San Gabriel, California and started selling his products in Texaco gas stations throughout California.

For over 90 years, our family has carried on Uncle Doc’s dream to produce the highest quality professional car polishes and waxes. We manufacture a complete line of high quality car care products for the professional and consumer markets. We specialize in custom polishes, waxes, compounds, ceramics, paint sealants, metal polishes, soaps, degreasers, cleaners, shampoos, and more. We also offer custom private label manufacturing services for select clients. We maintain a large inventory of finished products for immediate shipment to our network of independent distributors and professional users.

Hi-Lustre is one of the best kept secrets of many professional detailers and car care enthusiasts worldwide. Hi-Lustre delivers a deep, wet, showroom shine and long lasting surface protection to automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, boats, airplanes and RVS. We are dedicated to customer satisfaction and look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
