Our current success is driven by our proud history. In 1974, Lynne Colker purchased Samuel Westerman Import & Export, a small family-owned business, founded in 1916, which sold natural sea sponges and chamois cloths in the Pittsburgh area. Renamed L.M. Colker Company, Inc. soon after the purchase, Lynne Colker began to expand the sponge and chamois cloth business to include specialty cleaning products namely for window washers, commercial cleaners and small businesses.
