In the beginning, Hoover started as an American floor care manufacturer based in North Canton, Ohio, United States. It established itself as a major base in the United Kingdom for most of the early-and-mid-20th century; it dominated the electric vacuum cleaner industry. It dominated so much in fact that the ‘Hoover’ brand name became synonymous with vacuum cleaners in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The vacuum creator, Murray Spangler worked as a janitor in Ohio, he suffered from asthma and the dust stirred up while he cleaned staircases and rugs would worsen his health. After some consideration, Murray decided to create an ingenious solution. He took a soapbox, a fan, a silk pillowcase and a broomstick and put it all together to create the world’s first vacuum cleaner. When he tried out his invention he was very pleased and encouraged by the results he received.

Murray understood that his creation could be very useful to many people and decided to set out finding a sponsor. Before finding one however, Murray wanted to see what others thought of his creation and he have his broom to Susan Hoover, a move which made his fortune. Susan tried the new invention in her home for a week and was convinced of its potential, not only did this products save time and effort but it also eliminated dust, instead of just moving it.

Susan then showed the creation to her husband, William H. Hoover, who manufactured and marketed leather products in his shop in Canton, Ohio. He sensed his wife’s enthusiasm and with his own flair and instinct Hoover saw an opportunity. He realised the market potential of the new invention. He bought Murray’s patent and started producing six vacuums’s a day in the corner of his shop, thanks to the six workers he hired.

These days the Hoover brand not only manufactures vacuum cleaners but many other products too, such as cookers, dishwashers and freezers. No matter what you may be looking for, Hoover and Spares 4 Appliances are sure to have.
