The American Companies That Aren’t Actually American Anymore

Dirt Devil

Dirt Devil is an American company that has been around since 1905 and has kept households clean for years. Philip Geier founded the company and opened the first store in Cleveland, Ohio. Dirt Devil was known for its cyclone system that separated it from other vacuum cleaners, and because of that, it sold millions of units over the years.

The company was around for almost 100 years before it was sold to the Chinese company Techtronic Industries which purchased the company for an undisclosed amount of money. Dirt Devil is still making new vacuums every year, but the quality isn’t the same.
