C.A.R. Products, or Complete Appearance Reconditioning Products Inc., has manufactured vehicle detailing and cleaning products for more than 40 years, stated the release.

“We are very excited to welcome C.A.R. Products to the DuBois family,” said Brent McCurdy, president of Blendco Systems and the Transportation Division, in the release. “Their exceptional detailing and cleaning products are a great addition to our auto and fleet wash product lines. C.A.R. Products’ top priorities of providing superior products and competitive pricing while exceeding customer expectations with their products and services align well with the DuBois mission.”

Bob Goldenberg, C.A.R. Products president, will remain on board to run C.A.R. Products with the same service and support staff, sales representatives and chemists, reported the release.
