CGI Inc. President Gary Smith: Color Glo is a family business in its third generation.

About Color Glo International

Since its beginning in 1976, Color Glo International ® has become the recognized leader in the mobile furniture and automotive reconditioning industry.

Color Glo A Third Generation Family Business

Founded by Everett C. Smith to address the growing demands of an industry that was growing each year, Color Glo has from the very beginning been the benchmark of this industry. Having been involved in the reconditioning industry for years, Everett Smith felt the change was needed.  He realised that the existing products were not of the quality he would need to build a strong and successful brand. Although it was very costly and challenging, he decided that for his company, the only direction that would satisfy his pursuit of perfection and quality was to formulate his own line of exclusive and proprietary products.

Color Glo Research, Develop and Manufacture Our Own Products

Color Glo opened their own research and development labs to formulate the best products in this industry. He hired chemists that had strong backgrounds in new product formulation and research. Over a period of several years, his team developed the original Color Glo proprietary line of restoration and repair products. Today the original 8 products in the line have grown to over 100 different and unique products. Each of the over 100 products is developed and selected to work seamlessly within the Color Glo system.
