Founded in Cleveland, OH in 1905, Royal (now TTI Floor Care North America), manufactures the Dirt Devil? line of upright vacuum cleaners, stick vacuums, canister vacuums, quick cleaning hand vacs and carpet washers. The iconic Dirt Devil? handheld vacuum cleaner was introduced in 1984; the revolutionary hand vac featured a rotating brush for cleanup on stairs and furniture plus a hose for hard to reach spots and was an instant hit with consumers. In 2008 the company launched a line of EnergyStar approved cordless handheld vacuums featuring proprietary AccuCharge Technology; today the company continues to be known for offering innovative and convenient home and automotive cleaning solutions. The product line includes cordless handheld and stick vacuum cleaners, conventional stick and canister vacuums, and carpet shampoo along with vacuum cleaner belts, bags and replacement filters.
