In the Beginning
The original idea for a bagless vacuum cleaner was born in the 1920s. John W. Newcombe invented the “separator” — a device that was designed to separate dust and particulates from the air. Leslie H. Green saw the potential in this invention and joined forces with Newcombe to develop the “Newcombe Bagless.”
In 1929, Green formed a new corporation named Rexair. “King of the Air.” While the nation was in the throes of the Great Depression, the Rexair Company began producing, refining and marketing the Rexair Cleaner.
Birth of the Rainbow
1955 brought a drastically improved Rexair Water Based Cleaning System. With a sleek, design and a motor design that resulted in twice the power as its predecessor, Rexair executives decided to rechristen it the “Rainbow.”
Rexair’s growth was enormous. The result of a great product, the hard work and commitment of its dealers and Regional Managers. The dedication and vision provided by its executive staff.
