1908 -1918: 10 years of progress

Leader in floor-care, leading innovator in clothes-care

The history of Hoover dates back to the early 1900s and directly to Mr. James M. Spangler. He was a janitor and an inventor, but one of his many ideas, the one that changed his life, was due to a medical condition: he was asthmatic.

Almost 60 and cursed with strong disease, he grew frustrated at the tiring and dusty work of sweeping the carpet in the store where he worked. He suspected that the carpet sweeper he used on the job was the source of his cough.

Born out of necessity it was the trigger that led him to put ordinary household objects together to invent the first portable electric vacuum cleaner, a revolutionary solution that helped to modernize and improve people’s lives, health and wellbeing. An idea that literally initiated a new product category still identified today with the brand’s name.
