Born in 1914 on a farm in Lancaster County, Pa., Paul Stoner learned the value of persistence and hard work at a young age after the death of both parents.
With an education in chemistry, a natural aptitude for solving problems, and unwavering determination, Paul formed Stoner’s Ink Company in 1940 specializing in printing inks. While running his business, Paul took part-time jobs including work with a local tire retread plant. During this experience, Paul developed innovative products and groundbreaking aerosol technologies for the automotive industry.
As a small business owner, Paul’s commitment to excellence was evident to major companies such as Ford, GM, and IBM who turned to Stoner for lubrication and cleaning solutions. Paul’s work with automobile manufacturers led him to produce car care products to clean and protect the outside of vehicles. This work set the path for Stoner to develop what is known today as Invisible Glass.
Through business and community, people who knew Paul Stoner tell stories of how he was the nicest and most humble person they ever met. He treated all employees as family and strived to bring value to every customer. Today, hard work, dedication, and innovation are deeply rooted in all Stoner company philosophies, but it’s how we treat our customers that is truly Paul’s legacy. He wouldn’t have it any other way.
