Since 1905, Royal vacuums have been committed to manufacturing the best and most innovative vacuum and vacuum accessories in the industry, making it one of the world’s oldest vacuum cleaner companies. In 1937, they revolutionized the industry by creating the first hand-held vac called the “Royal Prince”. This set the high standard for innovation and growth that Royal vacuums has been committed to ever since. In 1984, they once again revolutionized the market by introducing a new innovative hand-vac, the Dirt Devil Hand Vac, which has grown to become Royal’s signature product and prompted many more product introductions under the Dirt Devil brand name. Nowadays, the Royal vacuum brand name is most notably recognized through the Dirt Devil name, and manufactures uprights, hand-vacs, stick vacuums, canister vacuums, and carpet shampooers.
