Nilfisk Vacuum Cleaners

The founder of Nilfisk, P. A. Fisker, applies to join the Copenhagen School for Electro Engineering in 1898. With his life savings and some old tools, he moves to Copenhagen in 1906 and starts his far-sighted production of small electric motors in a backyard workshop. He later goes into partnership with an old colleague, H. M. Nielsen, to form "Fisker & Nielsen".

The introduction of electricity into the home is a major factor for the success of the vacuum cleaner. Cables provide power to towns and villages alike, often supplied by Nordisk Kabel & Trad in Denmark, now known as NKT and the owners of Nilfisk-Advance today.
