Our History

Paul Stoner

Our Founder

Paul Stoner was born in 1914 on a farm in Lancaster County, PA. He learned the value of persistence and hard work at a young age after the death of both parents.

With an education in chemistry, a natural aptitude for solving problems, and unwavering determination, Paul formed Stoner’s Ink Company, in 1940, specializing in printing inks. While running his business, Paul took part-time jobs including work with a local tire retread plant. During this experience, Paul developed innovative products and groundbreaking aerosol technologies for the automotive industry.

Paul’s commitment to excellence was evident to large manufacturing companies across the nation who turned to Stoner for lubrication and cleaning solutions. Paul’s work with automobile manufacturers led him to produce car care products to clean and protect the outside of vehicles. This work set the path for Stoner to develop what is known today as the Stoner Car Care brand.

Paul’s Legacy Continues

People who knew Paul Stoner tell stories of his remarkable kindness and humility. He was known for treating his employees as family and he strived to bring value to every customer. Today, we pride ourselves on hard work, dedication, and innovation, as these are deeply rooted values bestowed from our founder. 

But it’s how we treat our customers that is truly Paul’s legacy. We always put our customers first and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Stoner Car Care is still family owned. It is operated by Paul’s grandson, Rob Ecklin, Jr. who spent his summers working in his grandfather’s factory. Rob is an avid automotive enthusiast who developed a passion for performance at a young age. He grew up near Watkin’s Glen, NY, where he and his father attended Can-Am and Formula 1 races together.

Rob’s love of cars motivated him to become a race car driver in the early 2000’s. He now races an Aston Martin Vantage in the IMSA circuit. Rob is as meticulous about the performance of the car he races as the products he makes.
