For over seventy-five years, Electrolux has been providing consumers with a variety of luxury appliances. Starting in 1925, when Electrolux introduced their version of the refrigerator, Electrolux has been committed to achieving customer satisfaction through quality and performance. While wandering the streets of Austria, Axel Wenner-Green saw a vacuum cleaner in a store window and thought to himself that every home should have one. Building on this thought, he decided to go door-to-door selling vacuums. He approached the Lux company and helped them produce the Lux 1 - their first vacuum cleaner.

However, they did not believe in the product, so Wenner-Green struck out on his own selling it under the name Elektron. The popularity of the vacuum was unbelievable, allowing the company to grow internationally at a rapid pace. In 1957, the company changed its name to "Electrolux" to reflect this (as the "k" was really only used in Germany and Sweden).

Electrolux and Eureka joined forces in 2004 (creating Electrolux Home Products North America) to produce some of the most popular selling vacuums on the market. The Electrolux line includes upright and canister vacuum cleaners, an air purifier, central vacuum, and a robotic vacuum cleaner named Trilobite (which knows when to recharge itself and navigates itself back to the outlet to plug in). The uprights are lightweight, use HEPA filtration systems and work on both carpets and hard surfaces. Electrolux uprights also come with additional tools that can be stored on board the vacuum and out of sight. The canisters also use HEPA filtration and Electrolux is rolling out a bagless canister that cleans its own filter. The Electrolux line also includes lightweight stick vacuums for smaller jobs.
