A backpack vacuum cleaner designed in Perth has played a key role in the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.
The vacuum features clearly in news photographs of a man cleaning the balcony at Buckingham Palace in preparation for Her Majesty’s appearance.
Urvin Seeburuth, head of marketing at Pacvac, said it was quite surreal to see one of the company’s products being used to clean such a prestigious place on such a momentous occasion.
“Pacvac is a proudly West Australian company and while I knew our products were being used to clean Buckingham Palace, to actually see a photo of it in action blew me away,” he said.
“The photograph now takes pride of place in the Pacvac boardroom, to inspire all staff and remind them of how far the company has come.”
“It was a real thrill for all of us to see (the photo) and it’s nice to think we contributed to the Queen’s big day. The eyes of the world were going to be on that balcony because that’s where she’d be standing and it’s a real feather in our caps that a Pacvac backpack vacuum cleaner was used to get it ready.
“From Kewdale to Kensington. Who’d have thought?”
Pacvac began operating in Perth, Western Australia in 1978, designing and manufacturing backpack vacuums for the Australian commercial cleaning market.
Pacvac’s products are now distributed to more than 23 countries.
