A Letter From the Founder

I first started working as a vacuum cleaner salesman in 1967,  going door to door and eventually becoming the District Sales Manager of Northern Ontario. My customers appreciated the fact that I not only sold them quality products but provided excellent service.


In 1982, after 15 years of working in door to door sales, I used my experience to start my own business, Sudbury Vacuum Sales and Service Ltd., with my uncle, J.P. and his wife Irene, who were part of the business for the first few years before retiring. The different vacuum companies were immediately interested in working with us because we were able to offer knowledge of all aspects of the vacuum cleaner business, including service and repairs.

I soon noticed the growing popularity of central vacuum systems and travelled to Southern Ontario to investigate. When I spoke with the representatives at Beam and saw their great products, I knew I wanted to offer them to my customers. We are now a distributor for BEAM Central Vacuum Systems for all of Northern Ontario. 

Since the beginning, I’ve always enjoyed dealing with people. When I went to bed at night, I couldn’t wait to get up in the morning and go to work. My customers knew that they were in good hands, often referring family members to me. In 2002, my sons took over the family business, carrying on my efforts, but even though I am retired, I still go into Sudbury Vacuum and help out. It’s hard to stop doing what you love. 

I would like to take this time to thank my loyal customers, my friends, my family and my wife Gisele who worked alongside me for over twenty years and who still helps out when she’s needed. Sudbury Vacuum Sales & Service Ltd. have been experts in the vacuum cleaner business for over 35 years. I look forward to seeing what the future brings.

Remi and the staff are the best!! Why buy at a big box store where you can rarely find a single person on the floor to help you, when you can buy a vacuum from local people that really care and are ready and willing to help? Whether you need a basic vacuum or have highly allergic loved ones in your home, Sudbury Vacuum really has it all!! Thank you so much!

This is a great shop with highly knowledgeable and experienced staff. All our questions were answered in a very detailed and easy way, so we understood science behind different kinds of vacuums and made our decision based on the knowledge we received. We had tested a number of different vacuum cleaners in the shop and felt the difference between them. At the end, we’ve been offered a good deal and split payment over a number of months with 0% interest. Great service, great shop! Will definitely come back here for other appliances!
