ProTeam® became a global phenomenon in the commercial cleaning world in 1987 after introducing a game-changing design innovation: the lightweight backpack vacuum. Scientific studies and maintenance crews consistently find ProTeam vacuums save time, money and resources while improving indoor air quality.
