In 1988, Tacony Corporation acquired the Riccar America Company with headquarters in Fullerton, CA, and a branch in Atlanta, GA. Originally a division of Riccar Japan, Riccar has been selling consumer appliances in the USA for over 50 years. Riccar America believes in quality over mass merchant quantity, and they truly are “The First Name in Vacuums That Lasts.”
The superior line of Riccar vacuums represents the highest standards in design, material, and durability, offering exceptional filtration and cleaning ability, plus unique specialty features. As other manufacturers closed factories in the USA to take advantage of cheaper overseas production, Riccar did just the opposite. In 1998, Riccar moved its upright vacuum cleaner production from Taiwan to St. James, MO. This not only allows Riccar to proudly put the “Made in the USA” label on its products, it enables Tacony to maintain closer control of quality issues and to be more responsive to retailer and consumer needs. Riccar sewing machines are also built with quality in mind using precision parts coupled with excellent craftsmanship, making them exceptional values.
Riccar America is dedicated to serving the independent retailer, selling strictly through a select group of Authorized Riccar Retailers who are committed to supplying their customers with expert advice, professional service and, of course, the most incredible vacuums. Riccar programs are designed specifically with the independent retailer in mind, offering both an effective factory sponsored “loaner program” and a “30-day free trial program.” With referrals, parts, bags and belts business, selling a Riccar creates a potential lifetime profit center for the dealer. Riccar’s top-of-the-line vacuum, the Radiance with Tandem Air technology, also carries an exceptional six-year warranty. Riccar stocks a full line of parts at Tacony facilities and through Blakeman’s when parts and service are required. Tacony’s technical service department is readily available to handle any service problems through their toll-free number. Incentive programs, point-of-purchase materials, and a retailer locator on Riccar’s Web site are just a few of the added value programs. Riccar provides their retailers with profit-making products and satisfied customers.To learn more about Riccar America Company, where the retailer’s prosperity is Riccar’s priority, or to become a Riccar dealer, contact Craig Neal at 1-800-995-9110, or visit www.riccar.com.
