March 12, 2012

BOISE, ID — To kick off a 25th anniversary celebratory year in 2012, ProTeam is giving away three new high-performance machines in exchange for the three longest-lasting vacuums out in the field, according to a press release.

Running from March 1 to April 30, the Oldest Vac Contest gives ProTeam owners the opportunity to enter in basic information on their existing vacuum for the chance to trade up to their choice of a brand new ProTeam Super CoachVac HEPA or Super QuarterVac HEPA model, the release stated.

According to the release, three winners will be announced on Monday, May 14, after ProTeam determines the three oldest vacuum entries by serial number.

"Here''s to making lasting impressions. ProTeam vacuums, especially our backpacks, stand the tests of time and the cleaning industry," said Jacalyn High, ProTeam director of marketing.

"We are surprised at how often we see decades-old ProTeam vacuums still out in the field being used every day. So for our silver anniversary, and to reward those customers who have loved and cared for their vacs over the long haul, we want to seek out the oldest machines and trade them up for brand new models," High added.

To enter, contestants should submit their name, phone number, e-mail address and facility type, along with pictures of their ProTeam vacuum and its serial number, to the ProTeam Facebook contest page, the release noted.

Those without Facebook accounts can email entries to, the release added.
