GoJak® SUV - Best in Class Stands Tall Above the Rest

Zendex Tool Corp. introduced their newest model in the GoJak® product line, GoJak® SUV G7016 at SEMA 2017 and the response has been quite impressive! The G7016 clearly filled a void on the upper end that the market was demanding. Average tire widths continue to grow, as do vehicle weights with truck sales quite strong in 2018. Heavier electric vehicles that are completely disabled when the batteries are disconnected during vehicle service has also played a role.

Adam's Launches Professional Series at 2018 SEMA Show

Adam’s Polishes has been in the business of making cars shine like new dimes since the early 2000’s. Started in Southern California, the business was started by Adam Pitale and focused on combining ease of use, efficiency, and appearance with a professional grade detailing product that allowed weekend hobbyists to have an expert result.

Fast forward 18 years and you’ll still see a product line that is effective and diverse, yet simple and multi-faceted. Although Adam’s has been in the game for 18 years, we just had our first official appearance at SEMA last year in 2017. This year, we are proud to showcase at two booths, both outside and inside (# 32303, #61026) and show off new products we’ve been hard at work on!
