About Us

Galloway Chemical Division opened its doors for business back in 1979. The founding owner, Edward J. O'Hanrahan, had a vision that only the highest quality of car wash chemicals should be used on every single car wash in the country. With this vision and dedication, Mr. O'Hanrahan experimented and began manufacturing his own formula cleaners, waxes and sealants. Simultaneously, Mr. O'Hanrahan recruited and trained technicians that would provide outstanding service to the many car wash sites that Mr. O'Hanrahan serviced.

He would eventually bring in his son, Edward Jr. to join the team and between the two of them they grew their business tremendously. What once started with a staff of 3, now consists of nearly 30 full time dedicated employees.
