In the mid-1800’s, Anna and Melville Bissell owned a small crockery shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Anna often became frustrated with the sawdust from the packaging crates embedded in the carpet; the tiny, stubborn particles clung to the carpet, and trying to sweep them up was becoming a time-consuming nuisance.
For this problem her husband constructed a carpet sweeper machine that he hoped would solve the problem once and for all.
The BISSELL Carpet Sweeper was patented in 1876, and in 1883 the first manufacturing plant was built in Grand Rapids.
As lifestyles changed, the company expanded beyond the carpet sweeper and introduced additional products that helped people clean better while saving time.
It is a 140 year old USA based company which is a leader in the floor care product segment in all major countries across the globe. Being highly innovative and competitive, it is the No# 1 Brand in Vacuum and Carpet cleaning appliances in the world with a 13% worldwide marketshare. It is available in more than 100 countries and now it is launched in India to make convenient the lives of Indian consumers with world class technology at affordable prices in the home cleaning segment.
