Chemist and founder Richard "Dick" Meehan formulated Marko's brand name cleaning detergents - quality soaps which outperform the competition. When asked why he started Marko, he said, "I figured that if I could make money for two other companies, I could make more money on my own." Perseverance, good management skills, and a love of people served him well until he passed away in 1991.

The MARKO Brand
It was the summer of 1967, hot, no air-conditioning. I, Richard Carl Meehan, Jr., sat at the kitchen table watching my mother and father. They were discussing a business venture. I was seven years old. "It's a big risk," my father was saying. My mother was busy doodling in a notebook with a No. 2 lead pencil. She looked up, "Everything's a risk. You formulated these cleaners; you know they work. And, people like to see you coming. They listen to what you have to say. So, where's the risk? We barely have any money anyway. Just think of the opportunities success would bring for us and our children." The image of a smiling janitor cleaning the world had formed on the notebook paper. I could have sworn he was sweating.
So what, you ask? Well, there's something to be said for family. If you want to deal with a company that cares whether the products you get will really work to save you money, if you want to be treated with respect and fairness, if you want to know your money is well-spent on items that live up to their promises, if you want to deal with cleaning experts who understand your needs, then you definitely should deal with us. We want what you want -- a down home family meal (a good variety of cleaning products that work) seasoned with quality and love. These are the reasons our logo smiles.
