Sebo was founded in 1978 by two engineers in Velbert, Germany. Since then, Sebo has become the most important manufacturer of high-quality, commercial and residential vacuum cleaners in the world, with sales in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America. Millions of SEBO vacuums have been sold to hotels, hospitals, schools and even the White House!
In addition to building high-quality vacuums, SEBO leaves you with a green and clean conscience when buying one of their products. All vacuums are made in Germany using locally sourced materials and components. They are manufactured in an environmentally responsible way that reduces waste and uses fewer resources. Plastic is recycled into new components, and the SEBO factory is completely self-sustaining with respect to electricity. For SEBO reducing the carbon footprint of a product starts in the initial design process. Most SEBO packaging is made from unbleached and recycled cardboard. Water resources are also conserved at the SEBO factory. Rainwater is collected from the roof, then filtered and stored, to be used in production and within the factory washrooms, saving the unnecessary use of treated drinking water.
