Riccar is based in St James, Missouri where it designs and manufactures vacuums in the United States. Their American heritage shows through in their vacuums that are full-featured and built to last.
Anyone who works at HoV or anyone who owns a Riccar will tell you that there is NOTHING that cleans better. Their primary concern in design is cleaning carpet better than anyone else. They do this through motor design, aerodynamics and Tandem Air (push-pull) technology.
In addition to being made in America and cleaning like no tomorrow, Riccars are also built to last. They feature 2-10 year warranties, depending on model, which is provided through HoV as a warranty center. They feature construction featuring: metal brushrolls, metal floor plates, brass bushing wheels, full metal motors, metal handles and glass-fiber reinforced plastics. If you have ever bemoaned that things aren't made like they used to be... you need to look at Riccar!
