Waxstock wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our show sponsors. An indoor show of this size costs a considerable amount of time, money and effort to put. Our sponsors help keep entry prices low and the car parking free, as well as ensuring that features are well run and that prizes are plentiful and generous.
This year, our main sponsors are:
From the kitchen stove to influential car care manufacturer in just a few years, Dodo Juice is now less of a spring chicken and more of a wise old bird - having celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2017. Famous for hand made, high quality specialist detailing products, Dodo Juice went on to create Waxstock with Detailing World to ensure that the industry had its own event in the face of hundreds of non-specialist classic and general motor shows. One of the few companies to make its own products to its own recipes, Dodo Juice prides itself on an impartial and informal approach, supplying everything from the most natural waxes to high tech nano-ceramic sealants. There are no black and white answers to detailing questions, but thanks to Dodo Juice there is always a lime green one... and it's probably whispered into your ear by a small blue mascot called Mr Skittles the Third.
Clean and Shiny was one of the earliest specialist online car care retailers, growing alongside a fledgling Detailing World about a decade ago. Some of the earliest detailing meets were held at the old C&S headquarters, but due to other projects, there was a hiatus in trading for a number of years until 2015 when Clean and Shiny was resurrected by the founding director. Reborn, reinvigorated and now firmly re-established, Clean and Shiny is one of the UK's foremost car care retailers, stocking a wide range of quality produce and equipment. Visit its Hampshire base and you are likely to be met by two out of the three Detailing World 'fathers' and the almost equally legendary 'Hello' Dave, who delights customers by creating artwork to order on their invoices.
Rupes is an Italian toolmaker, established in 1947. Whilst they have produced specialist machine polishers for many years, the advent of the BigFoot machine polisher propelled them to centre stage in the detailing market. With a choice of a 15mm or 21mm orbital throw, compared to the standard 6mm throw for a DAS-6, the BigFoot offers a larger cutting area for swifter results, without the risk of hologramming associated with rotary machines. A range of pads and polishes complement these machines, and don’t forget the smaller Ibrido for ‘spot’ work in confined areas.
In Europe and across the world, FLEX is an established and recognised manufacturer of high quality power tools for professionals in the Engineering, Natural Stone, Car Polishing, Drywall and Decorating industries. Established in 1922 in Germany, Flex has earned a reputation for its high quality and continued innovation. Flex is also committed to constantly updating and improving its product range, and has the ability to respond to an ever changing market. Did you know that Flex invented the first electric angle grinder and the world’s first orbital cordless polisher? Flex tools are made to last. Top quality tools for only the best tradesmen. We will be showing our brand new 18v cordless polishers at Waxstock this year... both the rotary and the orbital versions. We will, of course, also have our corded range there as well - along with our celebrity detailer Justyna Brys from JB Car Cleaning, Belgium.

Slim's Detailing is one of the most dynamic car care retailers of recent years, but their history stretches back to the 1950s. Slim himself founded a bodyshop (crash repair) business many decades ago, and created the Morelli bodyshop supplies group, which has 14 branches around the UK. With the smell of compound tickling their collective nostrils, it was only a matter of time for the current Morelli management to move fully into the detailing retailing arena. Their advanced online shop features a multitude of leading brands, price matching and some legendary customer care... and there's even a walk-in store in Enfield, London.
