Updated November 25, 2015

Proclamation presented November 23, 2015 to Oreck Clean Home Center at Cerritos City Council Chambers.


Founded by David Oreck in 1963, Oreck Corporation began as a manufacturer of upright vacuum cleaners for the United States hotel industry. Today the company produces and sells vacuums, steam mops, floor machines, air purifiers and cleaning products for use in both hotels and homes throughout the United States, Canada and parts of Europe.

David Oreck had an obvious yet radical idea, designing a lightweight yet powerful vacuum to relieve the drudgery felt by hotel housekeepers using the much heavier models that were available to them. Naturally, hotel staff wanted to buy these vastly improved vacuum cleaners for their own use at home. Oreck’s original idea evolved, and Oreck Corporation began selling its unique products to residential consumers as well. Oreck products have earned a reputation for being the finest vacuums available. That singular, consumer-satisfying goal continues to drive Oreck to provide easy-to-use, lightweight and durable vacuums and other cleaning tools, each with exceptional power, for every room in the house.

The Oreck Clean Home Center in Cerritos is currently owned and operated by Suzanne and Robert Barkquest.
