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.

"Just wanted to thank you guys for helping turn my new car into a new car, minus the disgusting milk spill! Had such doubts the smell would ever go away and you guys made it happen. Thank you so much for taking care to make sure it all got out. You are heroes in my eyes. I will recommend everyone I know to you guys. 
Thanks again!"

- Lindsay and Jacob, Winnipeg
" I am a long time customer of Ming Auto Center. The work that is performed is always exceptional and the staff are never done until the job is done and done well. I have had many different vehicles receive a variety of preventative and corrective treatments, and they have been done to my exacting satisfaction. Claude and his team truly "get it" and are a pleasure to work with. "

- Keith Levin
"We've been steady customers of the Ming Centres in Winnipeg (both locations), having treated all of our vehicles to the full Ming package on purchase; perhaps the greatest compliment we've received about our vehicles is how new they look, regardless of their age. Both the interior / exterior treatment options are excellent value, particularly given the salt, sand and road debris they're exposed to on a daily basis in our climate. With new vehicles costing more and more, protecting the vehicle's finish should be a 'given' for everyone. GREAT staff (both locations) - courteous and customer service oriented from the word 'go'. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to prospective customers. "

- Mark Strople
"I have dealt with Ming for the past 15 years and each time I have work done on my vehicles, I leave their facility very satisfied with the quality of workmanship and their professional conduct. I never have to worry about them standing behind the product and work they provide. I have had one occasion where I had to take one of my vehicles back to them and they immediately remedied the problem, no questions asked. I have and will continue to recommend Ming to my friends and acquaintances. "

- Terry Van Stone
"The Ming shops are real professionals. I really appreciate the free shuttle service. "
