The VacuMaid Group, a wholly Queensland owned company, began operations in July 1969 under the name “Vacumatic Distributing”.
Virtually a one person operation, the business was conducted from shared premises at Stones Corner Brisbane selling and installing the comparatively unknown concept of central vacuum cleaning systems to the domestic market. Vacu-Maid is now the most widely recognized central vacuum cleaning system in Queensland and has become the generic term applied whenever people think of central vacuum cleaning systems.
As the company gradually expanded during the 1970s, various minor agencies were added to the core business of Vacu-Maid. A range of intercom systems for domestic, home unit and commercial installations complimented the Vacu-Maid product line and the now widely used “package” concept began to take shape, where one company could supply a package of products to the purchaser.
In 1980, the move into the manufacture and distribution of cellulose insulation saw the business shift to larger premises at Coorparoo Brisbane and the introduction of a new name “Vacu-Maid (Qld) Sales”.
1988 saw a change of ownership. Insul-Safe Pty. Ltd. Trading as Vacu-Maid (Qld) Sales came into being. Insul-Safe Pty. Ltd. had commenced operations in 1983 selling and installing cellulose insulation under the brand name “Insul-Safe”.
Our insulation division stocks a range of products including loose fill cellulose insulation, polyester batts, Foil Board sheet and sarking. There is no situation that we cannot cover for either thermal or acoustic insulation.
At this stage, the Vacu-Maid package was expanded to include a range of security systems for the domestic, commercial and industrial markets.
Rapid expansion during the 1990s saw the relocation of the head office to Murarrie Brisbane in 1998.
From this location, the whole of Queensland and northern New South Wales is serviced via a network of distributors. In Brisbane, the group currently employs in excess of 40 highly dedicated people.
Most recently, Building Security Management has been added to The Vacu-Maid Group.
The Vacu-Maid group is proud of our record of uninterrupted service and back up for the products that we offer.
