Theory of Relative Durability

Recently, one of my buddies was asking me about our waxes. “What makes yours better?” he asked. “Mainly the durability-how long our waxes last. That’s our staple and it’s why people like it” I answered. “So if it’s so durable, why isn’t Collinite more popular?” “Well, we really don’t push it down people’s throats. Plus,…

Buy Small. Buy Local. Buy Well.

I just got off the phone with Bob in Clinton, NY. For those unfamiliar with Central New York, Clinton is a quaint village about 10 min outside of Collinite’s home in Utica. Bob and I spoke at length about what Collinite marine products might best suit his needs as he’s preparing to take his 24…

We’re Going Streaking

Us waxers are an ambitious, impatient lot. We want to beautify our rides-car or boat… whatever the cost, whatever the weather. The problem is, our detailing desires occasionally get the best of us. I spoke to a gentleman from Pittsburgh today. He’s been using Collinite’s No.845 Insulator Wax (IW) for over 15 years. He explained…

All Dressed Up

Sometimes it’s tough to trust people who are always dressed up. It’s almost as if certain motives or empty promises might be lying underneath a polished look or spiffy threads. Maybe that’s why politicians aren’t always looked upon with the highest regard. (Our apologies if you currently hold office.) We’re not fancy dressers here at…

Don’t be afraid to include that in your message to customers. “ This was the advice (and probably the most coveted advice) we were given when initiating the new…

Wax nut?

I had an errand to run at the bank this afternoon. Pulling into the lot, it was hard not to notice how dull and faded their outdoor signage was. The words on the sign no longer stuck out, but rather blended into their background. Years of UV exposure had left them extremely chalky and tired…

“You Have a Lebron James Product, and It’s Sitting on the Bench.”

One of our most frequent Frequently Asked Questions: Why is it so difficult to find your products where I live? Why aren’t you in more stores? Collinite (as you may, or may not know) is a small, family-run business. If you’re a long-time Collinite user you can probably guess by now from our packaging, our…

The Guy Who Put Collinite On The Map

“I’m the New England man. I’m vital in New England.”  –Willy Loman I still remember reading Death of a Salesman in 12th grade English-a stage story hardly worth retelling; unless of course you were trying to deter someone from entering a door-to-door, on-the-road vocation. The hours and uncertainty. The rejection and the resilience. Sales (in the…
