ORECK AND HOOVER NOW—TOGETHER? Hooreck?

When it’s time to shop for a new vacuum, you may have a hard time choosing between Oreck and Hoover because both produce models of such fine quality. As of yesterday, the lines between Oreck and Hoover have blurred just a bit! While your favorite Oreck vacuum models won’t be disappearing off the market, the company is now owned by Royal Appliance Manufacturing Co., the same company that makes Hoover vacuum models.

This may not seem like much to the average vacuum shopper, but here at GoVacuum.com, we find this news pretty amazing. It’s like Batman suddenly deciding to adopt Superman, or Coke and Pepsi being all one company!

Oreck was up for sale at auction because the family that started the company filed for bankruptcy in May of this year. Although Oreck is a highly successful company that makes great products, the Orecks made the move in a bid to try and keep the manufacturing operations of the company here in the United States. Labor costs and other financial burdens on the corporation meant there was no choice but to file for Chapter 11. The family had hoped to buy back their company, but understanding just what a great brand Oreck is, Royal snatched it up.

The good news is that it appears the U.S.-based manufacturing of Oreck vacuums will continue, and the brand will continue to be produced independently. You can be sure that GoVacuum.com will keep on stocking Hoover parts, Oreck parts, Hoover vacuums and Oreck vacuums going forward! You can check out selection of Oreck and Hoover parts and vacuum cleaners over at our discount website.

Did you know Royal is the company that makes Dirt Devil too? Not only that, but the parent company to all these companies is the same company that makes Home Depot Ryobi power tools!

About Justin Haver

We are the people behind GoVacuum.com. We plan to use this blog to share our passion for all things vacuum and cleaning-related. We hope to use this space as both a source of information and entertainment for those interested in cleaning, vacuum cleaners and air purifiers. In addition to our normal posts that feature cleaning advice, and the "dirt" on the vacuum industry, we are featuring two series' that aim to both inform the reader and encourage a dialogue between GoVacuum and its customers. First, the GoVacuum Video Series where users can find videos that provide useful advice about repairing your vacuum, performing regular maintenance, health and cleaning advice, vacuum and air purifier reviews and demonstrations of popular cleaning products. Feel free to ask us to make any video you would like to see. Second, the GoVacuum Review Series was created after we noticed that the majority of the users on our online site arrived because they were looking for vacuum reviews or comparisons while in the research phase of the buying cycle. For this reason, we have dedicated a section of the blog to creating our own honest reviews about the products we sell. We encourage everyone to leave their own reviews or ask us to review any product you are interested in hearing about.
