BISSELL turns 142 today! We know, we’re old… and we’re proud of it!
BISSELL was founded in 1876 by Melville and Anna Bissell. Their goal… to solve the simple problem of sawdust around their crockery shop. Intuitive and innovative, Melville invented and patented a one-of-a-kind carpet sweeper. After friends and customers of the shop wanted to buy the sweeper, a business was born.
