Bio
After years in the automotive reconditioning industry, C. Everett Smith was not satisfied with the quality of existing products. So when he started Color Glo, he opened his own research and development labs and hired chemists to develop a proprietary line of restoration and repair products. Color Glo's original eight products have now grown to over 100. Color Glo franchisees use these products to clean, repair and re-dye leather, vinyl, fabric, carpet, plastic, fiberglass and other materials. They serve both residential and commercial customers, including the automotive, marine and aviation markets.
