Every year, Ettore Products Company uses the IWCA Annual Conference as an opportunity to acknowledge and honor those who have contributed to the association. The Ettore Award, which was created by CEO Diane Smahlik, is awarded to the candidate who has shown “consistent, unselfish support and devotion to the IWCA.”
Ettore Steccone invented the window squeegee over eighty years ago in Oakland, California. His T-shaped tool, manufactured of brass with a single precision slit rubber blade, dried windows virtually streak-free and became the new standard in cleaning glass.
Today his family still runs this small independently owned company and continues his legacy by bringing quality products, not only to the professional, but to homeowners around the world. The spirit to innovate and discover new and better ways to clean is alive and well at Ettore Products Company. As we inspire professionals to master the art of cleaning, our goal is to remain at the forefront of innovation and continue to product the finest cleaning tools available.
