In 1961 Koblenz developed its first
vacuum cleaner, with an all-metal chassis and a single stage motor. The
introduction of this vacuum cleaner in foreign markets was a success due
to the ruggedness and durability of the product design. In 1968 Koblenz
introduced the first line of Rug Shampooers and Floor Polishers. In
1972 the company started manufacturing washing machines. In 1998 the
company introduced a Total Floor Care System to satisfy the every day needs of consumers worldwide.
Koblenz has over 2000 full time Employees
including a complete engineering staff, state of the art test labs, and
prototype facilities. All this operates in a main manufacturing plant
of over 300,000 square feet.
During the fall of 2000 Koblenz acquired Hoover´s Mexican operation adding 10,000 sq. ft. to its manufacturing plant.
Koblenz currently exports product to over
25 countries throughout the world including Japan, Australia, New
Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Europe, Central and South America.
The company´s vertical integration in
manufacturing processes, including metal stampings, injection molding,
motor winding and assembly, have allowed Koblenz to offer customers,
turnkey project development from state of the art design sketches to
high quality finished products.
For over 40 years Koblenz has developed
high quality Floor Care products targeted at solving real consumer needs
in both the domestic and industrial markets. See also the Koblenz Heavy Duty vacuum line
