 CR Distributing of Columbia, Missouri, has represented the Kirby Vacuum Company for the past two decades. During that time, CR Distributing has built its customer base in the Missouri market in large part due to the popularity of the Kirby vacuums. The Kirby Company has a long and distinguished history. In 1906, Jim Kirby invented the company’s first vacuum, called the "Domestic Cyclone," which used water to separate the dirt from the air stream. The company’s next model, the "Ezee," came to market in 1914. This product was a non-electric cleaner powered by a bellows. In 1919, Kirby invented the “Vac-u-ette,” which featured a beltdriven rotating brush, a filter bag, and wheels that powered the machine.

 The company produced its first electric model, the “Vacuette Electric,” in 1925. This machine featured a removable nozzle and a hose that customers could use for cleaning surfaces other than the floor. One of the models developed during this time also utilized a "Crystalator" attachment, which generated a gas for repelling moths. Today, Kirby continues to add innovative features, such as a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter and a shampoo system, which make the brand a top selection among cleaning professionals and residential customers alike.
