Founding Story
The Kirby Company is located in Cleveland, Ohio. Jim Kirby is the Founder of the company. He was an inventor in his time. His first vacuum model was invented in 1906 and it employed water for dirt separation. He realized that the emptying of water was an inconvenience and he began pursuing better ideas. In 1907, he developed a (www.mlmlegal.com) vacuum that pushed dirty air into a cloth bad that filtered out the dirt.

He began improving his designs and began commercial production of his products after WWI. In 1925, he developed the Vacuette Electric with a removable floor nozzle and handle. This vacuum became a forerunner of today’s multi-attachment model and was the birth of what was to become the world famous convertibility feature of the modern Kirby home care system.

Over 200 products used today are a tribute to his success.
