The well-known home cleaning supplies company Oreck began back in 1963 under the watchful eye of founder David Oreck. Oreck’s basic idea was to provide a vacuum cleaner that was very effective at its job but more lightweight than the models that were available at the time. He felt that there was a need to provide this type of thing to housekeepers all across the country who were feeling the burden of having to use the heavier models.

Although it started with helping out those who worked in hotels, the staff of those hotels that used these new vacuums naturally wanted to get them for their personal home use as well. The man behind the original idea sprang into action and worked to create a home vacuum and other products for home cleaning that his company would sell.

Oreck has managed to maintain a reputation for creating the best and most innovative vacuum cleaners in the world. This is despite the fact that the field gets more crowded with competition on a regular basis. Oreck strives to make products that are always a step ahead of the rest, and their products are meant to be used in every room of the house.

As for David Oreck himself, it can be said that no one would have predicted his immense amount of success in the beginning. Working for RCA for many years up until World War II, the man did not start making any progress on his company until after he started to see some of the revolutionary products of those days. He says that he had a lot of energy and focus, but no money. That all changed once he started bringing those vacuum cleaners to market, and the rest is history.
