Vogel Paint and Wax was started in 1926 by Andrew Vogel in Orange City, Iowa. He had immigrated from Holland back around 1910 with his parents. His father was also a painter and paper hanger in Holland. When Andrew moved to northwest Iowa he began farming. After not having much success, and realizing that the paints available to him at the time were inferior to those his family had made in Holland, he began to manufacture a red barn paint and a white house paint in his garage.
