In 1935, an engineer from Kansas, USA developed a unique paint polishing method that would create a deep, mirror reflection and last for years. The process was coined "Masters in Natural Glazing" and the acronym MING was created. Since that time, an international franchise developed and now over 5 million passenger vehicles have been Ming-processed.
Other services were developed including Rust Protection and Undercoating, Auto Detailing, Interior Shampooing and Upholstery Protection. The objective was to offer the best possible New Vehicle Protection on news cars and trucks and make older vehicles look like new again with the state of the art appearance reconditioning.
Beginning of Ming in Winnipeg
In 1978, Randy Otto opened Ming in Winnipeg at the corner of St. James and Saskatchewan. In 1990, a second location on Stapleton Street off Nairn was added. Those locations continue to thrive today as the leaders in the automobile protection and reconditioning in the Winnipeg and Manitoba market. New services have been added to meet the growing automotive aftermarket to include Window Tinting, Stonegard Chip Protection, Paintless Scratch and Dent Repair, as well as highly specialized cleaning, deodorizing, and disaster repair.
Ming is grateful to the community for the support it has received over the last few decades. The business continues to remain strong by the tireless efforts of General Manager Claude Marion and Branch Manager Lyndon Brown and their staff who continuously provide uncompromised consistent quality work and unparalleled customer service. President Randy Otto continues to maintain and stand behind his simple original customer statement.
