A box, a fan, a silk pillowcase and a broomstick - this is how the first vacuum cleaner in history was born. The idea that transformed these simple elements into one of the most revolutionary technologies of the past century belongs to James Spangler, a night watchman in New Berlin, Ohio, who suffered from asthma and was tired of breathing the dust raised by the upright in the shop he worked in. He then showed it to a young entrepreneur William Hoover, the owner of a small business that produced leather items and sold them in his shop in New Berlin. He bought the patent and started production, establishing the company with the name - The Hoover Company.
