“Each and every year, I’m so very proud of what we have accomplished over the last 7 plus decades. It is very gratifying to produce quality products right here in the USA that actually work and are durable. We will continue to innovate and introduce new products into the markets we serve and carry on the tradition that my parents (Israel and Pearl) started in 1939!” - Jules Stern, President and CEO.
Metropolitan was founded in 1939 by Israel and his daughter Pearl Stern with the help of Hyman Gulker who pawned his pocket watch and gave $50 to his son-in-law and his daughter. That was the beginning of Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Company.
Since then, the Metropolitan Vacuum Cleaner Co., Inc. has evolved into a multidivisional corporation, being now a diversified multi-unit, manufacturing facility, producing amongst other products; Data-Vac Computer Cleaning Systems to Air Force Dog Dryers.
