Even though it makes all major appliances, Electrolux's history is closely tied to the vacuum cleaner. The company originated from the merger of two Swedish companies. One established company Lux AB, incorporated in 1901 by Sven Carlson, maker of large kerosene lamps for railway stations and the other, a new company founded by a former vacuum salesman. The merge appeared from the need of a new product for Lux AB because competitors started to make similar models of lamps and electric lighting started to compete with kerosene. So in 1912, the newly formed company started to manufacture electric vacuum cleaners.

The company merged with Svenska Elektron AB back in 1918 and the name changed to Elektrolux (the spelling was changed to "Electrolux" in 1957) so that back in 1918, the company had 400 employees.

Now Electrolux is a multinational appliance manufacturer, headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. The company is consistently ranked the world's second-largest appliance maker by units sold after Whirlpool which takes the first place. Electrolux products sell under a variety of brand names (including its own), and are primarily major appliances and vacuum cleaners intended for consumer use, but the company also makes appliances for professional use.

Because of the fact that until year 2000 (when Aerus LLC. transferred trademark rights back to the Electrolux Group) in North America the Electrolux name was long-used by Aerus LLC, a vacuum cleaner manufacturer, who was originally established to sell Swedish Electrolux products, Electrolux-made vacuums carried the Eureka brand name. Electrolux continued to make Eureka-branded vacuums even after the company regained the right to use its own brand.
