Shop-Vac Corporation was founded in 1953 as an offshoot of the Craft Tool Company by Martin Miller. A vacuum designed to take the place of the broom and dust pan for cleaning wood and metal chips in the school’s workshops became known as the first Shop-Vac® branded product. As the recognized world leader in wet/dry vacuums, we offer quality products that provide excellent value and are produced with manufacturing technology second to none. Today, Shop-Vac® is the number one selling brand of wet/dry utility vacuums in the world. Shop-Vac Corporation is still a family run business with manufacturing facilities located in: Williamsport, Pennsylvania; Binghamton, New York; and Shenzhen, China. Shop-Vac® products are distributed from these locations: Williamsport, Pennsylvania; Burlington; Ontario, Canada; Guadalajara, Mexico; Melbourne, Australia; and Shenzhen, China.
n 1987, Shop-Vac® designed the world’s first wet/dry vacuum that could be converted into a portable leaf blower. This design is still popular today, after undergoing improvements since its introduction.
Since the design of the first Shop-Vac® branded product, innovation has been a mainstay at the company. Notable new products include: the Blower Vac® (a wet/dry vacuum that converts to a handheld leaf blower), the 1x1®, Mighty Mini®, and All Around® lines (portable wet/dry vacs), the Pump Vac® (a wet/dry vacuum that features a built-in water pump), as well as many innovations in filter and motor technologies.
