Melville Bissell developed an early carpet sweeping machine to aide in cleaning the crockery shop he and his wife Anna owned and operated. The device was patented as the Bissell Carpet Sweeper in 1876. In 1883 Bissell built the company’s first manufacturing plant in Grand Rapids. By the 1890s the company had an international presence and was producing 1000 sweepers per day.
Melville Bissell died in 1889, and his wife Anna took over as leader of the company. She served as the company president from 1889 – 1919 and chair of the board from 1919 – 1934.
Over the years the company expanded from manufacturing only mechanical sweepers to producing vacuum cleaners and carpet shampooers.
In our household we have multiple Bissell products and we love them. When we need to get our carpets clean, we turn to our Bissell deep cleaners to get the job done.
