The History of Windtrax

Marvin Wilhelm established Windtrax in 1974. Starting with a car wash and laundromat in Merriam, Kansas, Marvin and his wife Peggy bought and sold car washes. Over time, the number of car washes they owned increased and Marvin developed an inventory of supplies and spare parts to keep the car washes operating. When other owners had something break at their car washes, they often went to Marvin and asked to purchase a spare part or two from him. As more car wash owners purchased items from Marvin, he outgrew the storage room at his car wash. In 1986, Windtrax became a corporation and Marvin moved the business into a 4,000-square-foot building at 31st and Troost in Kansas City, Missouri. The business continued to grow, and in 1996 moved to its current location, a 20,000-square-foot building in Mission, Kansas.

Marvin and Peggy Wilhelm worked hard to build this family-owned business into what it is today. Just ask anyone around here and they will tell you that Marvin is the car wash expert. And Marvin has passed that expertise on to the next generation, which is now responsible for the daily operations of Windtrax. This is how we’ve become the leading car wash products supplier that we are today. We value our longstanding customers who have put their trust in us for decades, and are happy to see new car wash owners and operators discover all we can offer, including car wash chemicals, supplies, and equipment.

Windtrax wants to be your “Car Wash Store.” We have a veteran sales team and the most experienced car wash technicians in the region. We are the source you need to keep your car wash operating at its best. Running out of chemicals or supplies, or suffering a breakdown, is not only an inconvenience to your customers, but can also damage your reputation as a reliable company. Let us help you ensure that your car wash is fully stocked and in perfect working order at all times, so that you can foster the great relationship with your customers that we have with ours. Our expertise as a car wash chemical distributor allows us to provide you with the products and advice you need to safely and reliably choose, purchase and stock all of your car wash chemical supplies.

Windtrax has now made it more convenient to order parts using our new, updated website. The online store offers more features that will be helpful to our customers. You will be able to view your order history and account information, check on open invoices and payments, and print any of this information for your records.

We hope you will enjoy the new online shopping experience, and we’re still here anytime you need to call us, Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM CST.
