Additional Information: 

The Simoniz Company came about in the early twentieth century almost in tandem with automobiles. The company was initially called Simons Manufacturing Company and the two products were Simons Cleaner and Simons Paste Wax. The two products were created for car finishes. By 1912 the company, which had been founded by George Simons and Elmer Rich, was taken over fully by Elmer and his brother R.J. Rich. The company’s name changed to Simoniz Company and was located at 2121 Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Over the years the company has taken on more products, such as floor waxes during the 1940s and 1950s. The company was also known for their combination wash and wax products for vehicles. Here is a commercial for this combination product from the 1960s, being endorsed by the Three Stooges.
