History of M.D. Manufacturing, Inc.

Charles would make elaborate metal toys for his sons.

Charles Emdy, a master metal worker, made his first central vacuum prototype out
of a wooden box to prove his concept. Finding success, he purchased 12 motors from
Ametek and started M.D. Manufacturing in his garage in North Hollywood.
