The Birth of A & J Vacuum
1996 was the turning point for Rick. After working for 9 years as a Central Vacuum installer and repairman, Rick decided to purchase the business!!!
Along with his wife Pauline, Rick has successfully run A & J Vacuum ever since (now 21 years)!!! More recently, Rick and Pauline have embarked on the second generation of A & J Vacuum as their daughter Amanda is now working alongside, learning the ins and outs of the business as she goes.
