Vacu-Maid and AstroVac Central Vacuum Systems are great products, and I'd like to highlight them in this post. Vacu-Maid and AstroVac are manufactured by Lindsay Manufacturing. Our Imperium line and Valet central vacuums are also manufactured by Lindsay.
Lindsay is one of the pioneers in the central vacuum industry in the United States and today their central vacuum power units are STILL made in the USA! These central vacuums are manufactured by Lindsay Manufacturing in Ponca City, Oklahoma, USA. They have been building quality cleaning systems since 1956. Since the beginning they constructed their power units from rolled galvannealed steel and now they powder coat them for a tough, corrosion-resistant lifetime of use.
Lindsay is a family business, and Central Vacuum Stores considers them true friends and partners in serving our customers. Last year at the International Builder's Convention in Orlando, Florida, I snapped this picture of Winston Lindsay (President and CEO of LIndsay Manufacturing seen on the right) along with his son and daughter (also part of Lindsay Mfg.), and Roger Ambrose, the President and CEO of Central Vacuum Stores. We have sold thousands and thousands of Lindsay products over the years and I can tell you they are a company that has integrity and stands behind the quality of their products.
Their most recent addition, the Green Clean Machine is another example of their pioneering efforts in our industry. This product is unlike any other unit on the market. Check out these features:
Repairable long-life motors Special interrupters stop the motor near the end of brush life so that the brushes can be replaced prior to damage to the motor.
“Off is Off” . Less standby power Features an On/Off switch that turns the power unit off completely, no energy leakage.
Maintain healthy indoor air The can liner allows maintenance to be performed without all the dust dispersing back into the living environment.
Recyclable steel canister Not only will this canister last for years, its all steel construction is also recyclable at the end of its life.
Over 50 Years of Product Innovations Manufactured in Ponca City, Oklahoma, U.S.A. since 1956.
Lindsay also manufactures this unit under the Imperium name. Learn more about the Imperium CV7700. What's more...both the Imperium and the Green Clean Machine are the only central vacuum systems that we know of, with the Rug and Carpet Institute's Green Label for Indoor Air Quality!
