Located near Quarryville in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Stoner manufactures specialized cleaners, lubricants, and coatings for both business-to-business and consumer applications.
Founded 60 years ago by Paul Stoner (inset photo), the company has enjoyed a history of innovation and accomplishment, often against difficult odds. Paul Stoner, although orphaned as a child during the depression, persevered to earn a degree in chemistry and eventually start his own company in the 1940's.
Today, pursuing a mission to help customers "save time, increase productivity, and improve the quality of their work". Stoner formulates more than 300 solutions that are packaged in aerosol cans and larger bulk-liquid containers. For example, Stoner is the largest supplier of anti-stick release agents for the plastic molding industry.
Professional auto detailers, collectors, and enthusiasts use Stoner car care products to clean, shine, and protect their favorite vehicles, from Fords to Ferraris. Several of these, including a no-streak glass cleaner called Invisible Glass, have recently gained national distribution through retail auto parts stores as well as the internet.
All products originate from the company's world headquarters, a single location in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania's Amish country. "Although we ship products worldwide, our goal is to be geographically invisible to our customers", says Traffic Director, Roy Peters.
