Rick started working in the vacuum industry in Guelph in 1982. Moved to the Niagara Region in 1987 and worked at "Doug Roy's Vacuum Repair Shop". One month later it was bought out by "Come Clean With Us" where Rick worked for 9 years as a central vacuum installer and repairman. In 1996 Rick purchased the business and with his wife Pauline has successfully run A and J Vacuum Supplies ever since, and has never looked back. Today Rick and Pauline are working together as a team ensuring the Niagara Region will always get the best product for the money.
