About Kirby

Kirby came into existence in 1920, when James Kirby invented the ‘vacuette’. Since then, the company has expanded and is now selling in excess of 500,000 vacuum cleaners per year, according to Wikipedia.

Kirby is part of Berkshire Hathaway, with direct sales dealers located across the United States and other locations worldwide. The company’s products can only be purchased from direct sellers who use home demonstrations to showcase the product. However, there have been instances of unscrupulous direct sellers who have overstayed their welcome, although Kirby has been quick to ensure that these representatives are disciplined.

People can either call the company to arrange for a local representative to come and give a demonstration, or apply to the company to become a representative.

Kirby vacuum cleaners are available in the United States and in more than fifty countries worldwide, including Great Britain, Kuwait, Italy, Greece, Russia, South Africa and Singapore to name a few.

The company is also a member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) with a rating of A+, the top ranking the BBB has to offer. It is also a member of the Direct Sellers Association.
