David Ristenbatt began his career in the vacuum business with his father in 1957. He assumed store manager responsibilities of Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service in 1975 and eventually became president in the mid-1980’s. Under David’s leadership, the business has developed from a small shop operated out of a garage in 1949, to a thriving, multi-store operation. This growth has been one of his greatest accomplishments.
David now operates two stores in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Both stores represent the best of what independent vacuum dealers have to offer. They are well-kept, well-lit and very inviting to customers. Both of David’s stores also stock over 25,000 different parts. This extensive inventory and David’s commitment to customer service give Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service one of the best repair departments in the business. David takes great pride in being able to repair a customer’s vacuum cleaner in less than 3 days — no matter how bad the problem.
Since David began, he has always operated his vacuum business by the highest Christian values, treating customers and employees with dignity and respect.
