The Story of Eureka

The brand name Eureka has been synonymous with quality vacuum cleaners since its 1909 founding in Detroit, Michigan. The originator of Eureka, Fred Wardell, worked early on to establish a reputation for excellence, and by 1927 Eureka was selling one-third of all vacuums made in the U.S. From its inception, Eureka focused on making vacuum cleaners sleek, versatile, and maneuverable. Its 1913 vacuum came in six different models, with multiple attachments, and could even be used as a hair dryer (eureka!). Following forays into oil-burner and defense production in the 1940s and ’50s, Eureka turned its full attention back to vacuum cleaners, with a focus on home and commercial use. In 1998 Eureka introduced its first HEPA sealed-filtration vacuum, in response to customer worries about allergens and air quality. The company currently makes bagless, bagged, steam, and canister vacuums; has an extensive line of lightweight cleaning tools; and has operations in 47 countries around the world.
