Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Ampro Industries, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of personal care products for the consumer and hair care professional. Since its founding in 1947, Ampro’s stability and consistent growth has been fueled by the Ampro Pro Styl family of gels, also known as – “America’s #1 Gel" and the award-winning Shine 'n Jam brand of products.
The founder of Ampro Industries, Inc., Mr. Irvin Lansky owned a dry goods store which was located in Memphis, TN, on the city’s historic Beale Street.
He sold various items, including multi-cultural hair care products. Impressed by the hair care industry, Mr. Lansky formed Vogue Distributing Company, a business that sold personal care products to beauty supply stores.
Later, Mr. Lansky opened Vogue Beauty and Barber Mart, a small beauty supply store located in downtown Memphis, just steps from his original location. It was in the basement of Vogue Beauty and Barber Mart that Mr. Lansky began manufacturing his own brand of hair products. In 1947, he named the line “Ampro” which is short for “American Products.” To date, Ampro products are still manufactured, warehoused, and shipped from its home in Memphis, TN.
