The first Royal vacuum cleaners were made by the P.A. Geier Company in 1905. This makes us one of the world´s oldest vacuum cleaner manufacturing companies. Mr. Geier started producing his metal cleaners by hand in a backyard garage in Cleveland, Ohio. Soon the company grew and moved to a four-story building on 105th Street where it operated two divisions, a cleaner division and a machining division. Besides vacuum cleaners, the company produced mixers, hair dryers and washing machine units.
