Meet Ettore Steccone.
Ettore Steccone came to the United States from Italy in 1896 to seek his fortune and chose window cleaning as his profession.
As much as he enjoyed his job and the freedom it afforded him, he didn’t like the heavy steel squeegee he had to use. After much trial and error, Steccone developed a new T-shaped tool, manufactured of brass with a single precision slit rubber blade which dried windows virtually streak free. He patented his innovative new squeegee in 1936 and dubbed it the NEW DEAL.
Such a Simple Invention.
