McGard

McGard's history begins with L.D. McCauley, Inc., which first began business in Buffalo in 1959, specializing in precision machining for government contracts to NASA and the military. In the early 1960's the owner and then President of L.D. McCauley, Inc., Mr. Lewis D. McCauley, designed and patented a security nut to prevent the theft of automobile rims and tires. The market demand grew, and distribution networks and dealers were established. L.D. McCauley, Inc. dropped out of the government contract marketplace and devoted it's efforts to the manufacture of Wheel Locks. A packaging and marketing facility was required, and in 1964 McGard, Inc. was formed. International patents were obtained in 1966 and McGard's market became international. Through the late 1960's and early 1970's, product demand continued to grow. In 1977 McGard entered the Original Equipment Manufacturers market with a lock for Cadillac's stainless steel wire wheel covers. Ford Motor Corporation, General Motors, and Chrysler began purchasing Wheel Locks and installing them as options and standard equipment on various models with alloy wheels. In order to service the sharply increasing demand, McGard and L.D. McCauley, Inc. tripled in size. A formal Customer Service Department was established for key registration and replacement

In 1990, McGard moved into its newly constructed modern 185,000 square foot facility located in Orchard Park, New York. Shortly thereafter Durham McCauley took over as President and Peter McCauley as Executive Vice President. The need for more equipment resulted in the plant being further expanded in 2001, adding an additional 40,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Engineering, quality assurance, manufacturing, plating, set production and customer service are all housed in this world-class facility insuring the highest level of quality through every stage of production. McGard's quality Wheel Locks are recognized by automobile companies and car owners worldwide. McGard GmbH, McGard's European facility located near Stuttgart, Germany, was opened in 1994. 1999 brought McGard into the Asian marketplace with the opening of McGard Japan located in Oomiya City. McGard Locks are sold the world over, not only to all the major car companies, but in the aftermarket as well.
