About Wynn's

Over 80 years’ Experience!

Wynn’s traces its history to 1939 when Chestien Wynn discovered a formula he named “Wynn’s Friction Proofing” Oil. This surface treatment for metal actually changed the chemistry of the metal, making it harder and better able to withstand friction and wear.

80 years following the introduction of that single product, Wynn’s has grown to become a leading global manufacturer and marketer of innovative automotive specialty products designed to clean, protect & lubricate regardless of whether your car is new or 80 years old.


Why Wynn’s?

Over the last 80 year’s Wynn’s global R&D Division has worked continuously to remain at the forefront of cleaning and lubricating technology.
