Founded in San Francisco in 1946.
Founded in San Francisco in 1946. Pacific Floorcare started by designing and building floor machines and burnishers that were true to the times -- "tough as tanks" as the nation was changing from war to peace time after World War II. A lot has changed since those early days, except for one thing -- the philosophy that solid construction and proven components are elements of a Purpose Built™ cleaning tool. The company's reputation of building quality machines grew and we gained tremendous experience in the cleaning industry. This captured the attention of Larry Hines, owner of the Hines Corporation. Larry, who had served as President of a leading cleaning equipment manufacturer, saw the opportunity for tremendous growth and purchased Pacific Floorcare in 1985. Soon after this acquisition, the company was relocated to Michigan, USA and continues to not only be based in the U.S., but focused on the U.S. cleaning market.
