ORECK TO SHARE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

Duluth News-Tribune (MN) - Tuesday, October 22, 2002

Author: News Tribune

David Oreck , the 79-year-old vacuum cleaner tycoon, will return to his hometown, Duluth, to share his business insights and accept the keys to the city today. During an address in the University of Minnesota Duluth's Montague Hall, the founder and chairman of Oreck Corp. will talk about what it takes to build a successful brand. The noon event is free and open to the public.

Oreck launched his company in 1963, producing lightweight upright vacuum cleaners mainly for the domestic hotel industry.

The machines proved popular, and today they can be found in many homes.

The company still manufactures all its vacuum cleaners in the United States. It employs about 1,500 people at its New Orleans headquarters and manufacturing plant in Long Beach, Mississippi.

The Oreck name should sound familiar to many longtime Duluthians. David's father, Abe R. Oreck , served as president of the First Street Department Store at 131 W. First St.
