AUTOGLYM at Opie Oils

The Autoglym brand was founded in 1965 by a UK Motor Trade entrepreneur Dennis Barley who developed a unique system for renovating used car paintwork. Originally, there were 11 products in their range, including polishes, a sealant, a paint renovator and glass, interior, engine and wheel cleaners. The products were only available to professional valeters working in garages and workshops, however, in 1986 Autoglym launched their retail range consisting of existing products and some developed especially for home users.
