Established in Detroit by Kurt Ziebart in 1959, Ziebart International Corporation built its business upon the founder's inventive techniques for preventing automotive rust. Today, Ziebart's international network of 400 locations across 30 countries beautifies and protects roadbound vessels with an arsenal of sophisticated products and services, including window tinting, paint protection, underbody sound barriers, and forcefields. Employees purchased the company in 1994 through an employee stock ownership plan, giving each worker a personal stake in ensuring every vehicle is buffed, polished, and cleaned to a glistening brilliance. Interior and exterior detailing packages remove stains from upholstery and grime from auto bodies, Diamond Gloss paint finish, and corrosion-control treatments shield four-wheeled friends from everyday wear and tear.
