I love searching products on the 'net, particularly anything to do with SEBO (naturally) but since a thread has never been seen before on this site regarding Bork vacuums, I thought I would check out the products as well as share some interesting info.

Bork don't make their own vacuums but rather buy in from other companies including EIO in Germany as well as SEBO. Though SEBO have allowed other private labels to largely use uprights, I had never seen a re-labelled SEBO canister before; also Felix shown.

The Bork vacuums are INDENTICAL to the Sebo ones-Wonder if Sebo is going to have something to say--or are these machines made by Sebo?

They are made by SEBO - SEBO entered contract with Bork a few years ago to supply Russia with the vacuums. Mostly all reviews for the products get high ratings, too. But I thought I would add a thread here since no one has found the brand before.

What I was thinking the vacuums were built for Bork by Sebo-nice machines!I have the Sebo D4 Premium canister and it gets good use.I also have the C canister and the K one.And the X4 upright.-clear dealer one.

Hmm, very interesting! I wonder why Sebo didn't just enter the Russian market themselves, legal reasons perhaps? Either way, this Bork company's designs do look interesting.

There is a SEBO Russia website though. It seems BORK are selling the domestic vacs and SEBO Russia are selling commercial vacs.

Sorry for reviving a old thread.

"I had never seen a re-labelled SEBO canister"

@sebo_fan Bork is not the only one apparently.

Behold the Thomas Airtec! Apparently from my knowledge these were also sold in Russia. As Thomas water filtration vacs are already quite popular there.

Sadly though sebo_fan won't be replying back to you cause he unfortunately passed away sometime ago. Just thought I'd let you know.

@panasonicvac Didn't know about that. Do you know what the cause is? And when?
