I cannot remember the topic, but I pretty sure it was you who posted a link to a Dutch manufacturer that outsourced to China. I clicked on the link and saw, to my surprise, several vacuums I recognized, including the standard older style Oreck uprights. Could you repost the link, please?

@Trebor . . .

Hi Trebor,

I'm sorry but I don't recall. The only Dutch maker I remember linking to was Philips (not totally Dutch), who sold a branded machine later known as the Dutch-Tech vacuum Oreck eventually came to sell with the Wessel Werk PN.

I did fish around using the search thing here but had no success. If you tell me what the link was, I can probably tell you the reason why I included it. Sorry that I can't be more helpful.

It had to do with manufacturing and outsourcing. The Dutch mfg. outsources vacs to its, or a facility in China and private labels them. Oreck was not specifically mentioned in the post, but when I clicked on the link and looked at the available product I saw what I swear were the classic square Oreck uprights. It was not a company I had ever heard of before.

Thanks, Trebor

Another piece of the puzzle...

I'm pretty sure it had to do with the source for Fakir vacuum cleaners. There was a link in the post to a mfg website home page, and then the products page showed a variety of types of vacuums, with verbiage about the private label options.

Ivac manufactures alot of machines that are sold under different names . The company made its name with the up350 upright pictured bellow. This machine has been sold as an oreck , wetrock, karcher, wap,dryrug to name a few. The fast lable is Ivacs in hous brand. If you have enough $$$ to order a product run they will manufacture any of there vacuums in your choice of colour to your specification
