Reinventing Window Cleaning
The History of Ettore Products Company
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.
