MD's 60th Anniversary

60 years ago, Charles Emdy had a vision for better cleaning products and founded the company that would become MD.

2021 marks a major anniversary for MD Manufacturing: we are celebrating sixty years in the business. MD Manufacturing is known for its innovative products that transform a home's cleanliness and hygiene and it all started in 1961 in the garage of company founder Charles Emdy. Building on his foundation, MD has become an industry stalwart with more than 60 years' experience in the manufacturing of Central Vacuum cleaners. MD is still a family-owned organization, still assembling products in the U.S., and still a forward-thinking organization with a DNA of quality. Though America is our home, MD products are sold around the world, including countries such as Australia and China.

Through the past decade, we have continued our mission and pushed through numerous roadblocks and times of uncertainty, including a period of financial hardship. A good idea doesn't get very far without the proper tools to succeed, so we're celebrating the relationships that have gotten us through these past 60 years and counting. Our loyal dealer force, valued retail customers, and prized employees are all major catalysts for our continued success. We have been able to expand and open our East Coast Distribution center for quicker order processing and delivery across the country. We aim to provide our customers with 60 more years of quality products. We thank you for your continued support.
