ProTeam®, the company internationally recognized for innovative vacuum technology, celebrates its 30th anniversary year. In 1987, ProTeam became a global phenomenon in the commercial cleaning world after introducing the original lightweight backpack vacuum, which revolutionized vacuum productivity, durability, and ergonomics for cleaning professionals. Today, the company has expanded its product offerings to include the ProGuard® line of wet/dry vacuums, the ProGen® upright, and the newly enhanced GoFree® Flex Pro cordless backpack vacuum.

“ProTeam has undergone an immense transformation since creating the first lightweight backpack vacuum,” said Director of Marketing, Jacalyn High. “As a company, we are taking a brief moment to celebrate how far we’ve come, then it’s back to grindstone as we work to bring more innovative designs to the market.”

The company’s anniversary year started off with the renewal of its longstanding support of the American Lung Association. As a National Proud Partner, ProTeam will continue to support the American Lung Association and its work to promote healthy indoor air for the next three years.

In February, ProTeam introduced the enhanced GoFree Flex Pro cordless backpack vacuum, which cleans five times faster than an upright vacuum and 30 percent faster than a corded backpack. Before the year is out, ProTeam plans to launch another game-changing innovation.
