Car Detailing Professionals

The Könings story

Mike Laskowski, our founder and lead detailer, refined his craft at McLaren Automotive and Rolls Royce motor cars. His hands-on involvement in every project at Könings showcases our commitment to quality. With two decades of industry experience, Mike brings knowledge and expertise to each project, elevating our standard of excellence to unparalleled heights.

His impressive career includes a nearly decade-long position as a paint specialist at McLaren and a master technician position in the finesse department of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. His vast knowledge and deep understanding of the automotive sector undeniably position him as one of the most experienced and highly skilled professionals in car detailing industry

At McLaren, Mike was more than just another employee. He played a pivotal role in the paint department, from pre-production panel inspections, to paint application and working in the final rework area at the end of vehicle builds, adding finishing touches, and maintaining impeccable quality. He shaped the future, training new team members in paint detailing, final rework, and quality inspection. He was also the driving force behind the preparation of show-stopping cars for prestigious motor shows in Geneva, Paris, and Shanghai from McLaren MP4-12c to P1 and Senna

His expertise then found its home in Rolls Royce’s Finesse department supporting the launch of RR Dawn and Phantom 8– a space dedicated to the highest-skilled automotive specialists. Here, Mike meticulously fine-tuned vehicles, making final adjustments in trim, paint, and body, ensuring they met the highest standards before gracing the driveways of the world’s elite customers.

In 2018, Michael decided to venture beyond the realm of automotive manufacturing to share his extensive knowledge and skills with a broader audience. His impressive tenure at esteemed companies like McLaren and Rolls Royce had endowed him with a deep-seated understanding of automotive excellence. Faced with the choice between establishing a vehicle restoration business or moving into car detailing, Michael identified a distinct gap in the detailing sector, making it an obvious choice. In an interview, Michael shared, “The car detailing industry is relatively unregulated, with limited formal qualifications available. However, with my extensive background in body shops, restoration, and the high standards of automotive manufacturing honed at McLaren and Rolls Royce, I knew I would bring a higher level of expertise to the table. While many detailers have transitioned from car wash operations, I have had the privilege of approaching this venture with a solid foundation built over nearly two decades in the automotive sector. This extensive experience undeniably sets Konings Detailing apart, allowing us to offer an unparalleled standard of quality and expertise to our customers.”

Our team is also working hard on Könings Detailing’s research programme, developing the latest and most advanced paint cosmetics and products for the prestigious automotive market.

Michael Laskowski

Founding & Detailing Specialist

The driving force behind Könings Detailing is Michael Laskowski. Michael gained his experience working with some of the biggest names in the industry, beginning his career at Jaguar Land Rover, later joining McLaren and rising to become a top specialist in their paint department. His next move to Rolls-Royce saw him supporting the launch of two new models before he decided on a different path to bring his wealth of acquired knowledge and experience to a discerning wider audience by creating Könings Detailing.

Michael’s in-depth understanding of paint from preparation, priming, painting and polishing coupled with his expertise with interior trim, leather and fabric mean you are guaranteed the very highest quality of service and exceptional results.

“I absolutely loved working in the automotive industry, however, I felt like I had missed a few years of my life at that time because commuting and long hours and periods away from home were becoming more difficult to balance. Thanks to the immense experience I’ve gained working with the best in the industry, I knew I could offer to my potential customers a great car detailing experience. That is when I decided to set up my own business. I am developing my customer base in and around Winchester and want to build relationships with local car owners, event organisers and collectors.”
