TACONY CORPORATION
With every new product or service, Tacony keeps the customer in mind every step of the way. When you call a Tacony help line, you will speak with a real person, not a computer. Tacony is also committed to quality assurance. In-house engineers and quality assurance members test Tacony products before they are sold to the public. Additionally, Tacony moved manufacturing of many upright vacuum cleaners and its premium sewing furniture back to the United States. As a result, Tacony has created hundreds of American jobs.

Originally founded as a wholesale floor care parts and equipment company, Vac Pros provides retailers with a variety of products, the parts and know-how to stand behind the Riccar and Simplicity products.

The CleanMax brand focuses on one thing…vacuums. For many commercial floor care companies, vacuums are an after-thought. They are often rebadged versions of household machines. CleanMax vacuums, on the other hand, come from a company that has been in the vacuum business for decades. The machines are so durable, easy to use, and practical that they’re used by cleaning staff in hotels, airports and offices across the United States.

The Fuller Brush Company dedicates itself to solving home cleaning problems. Over 100 years ago, the company started with a focus on the finest quality brushes.

Today, the Fuller Brush Company still prides itself in high quality, performance-oriented products to clean your home.

For about 10 years, Tacony Corporation has licensed the Fuller Brush name for a full line of powerful home vacuum cleaners. Fuller Brush vacuums are built with durable, metal components. They’re also safe and effective on carpet, and many have the Carpet and Rug Institute seal of approval to prove it.
