In 1941, the Weiman family pioneered a new revolution of ‘clean’ by giving its customers a complementary bottle of special polish to preserve and protect fine wood furniture. First to the market and innovative at the time, Weiman wood polish was formulated to perfection and contained a distinctive blend of the finest emulsions, natural oils and nourishing wood cleaners and conditioners.
Throughout the decades, the Weiman brand has grown into an extensive collection of cleaning and polishing products for a wider range of popular premium surfaces throughout the home including glass/ceramic cook top ranges, stainless steel, granite, leather, wood, hard surface flooring and silver.
In the late 1980’s, Weiman brought the first cook top cleaner to the market – Weiman® Glass Cook Top® Cleaner. Shortly thereafter, Weiman secured distribution and Glass Cook Top Cleaner became the company’s best selling product. Weiman Glass Cook Top Cleaner is rated the #1 cook top cleaner by Information Resources, Inc. and ACNielsen and is recommended by leading glass/ceramic range manufacturers.
Weiman identified new opportunities by keeping a close eye on the homebuilding industry, remodeling trends and interior design. Weiman reemerged with the launch of Weiman Cook Top® Wipes in 2003, Leather Wipes and Stainless Steel Wipes in 2004 and Granite, Furniture and e-Tronic Wipes in 2005.
Weiman’s product portfolio expanded again in 2006 when the company acquired J.A. Wright & Co., a family-owned and operated silver and metal care company in Keene, New Hampshire.
In May 2007, Weiman Silver Polish and Wright’s Anti-Tarnish Silver Polish were recognized by Consumer Reports as a “CR Best Buy” for product performance and cost.
In June 2008, Crain’s Chicago Business named Weiman Products, LLC one of Chicago’s fastest growing companies with a 4-year growth rate of 173%.
