Back in 2002, our founding partner, Mark Branum, was invited to a TTI Technologies factory for a tour. Mark noticed that all the returned Dirt Devil vacuums were being tossed in a large dumpster to be landfilled. Mark is a natural-born entrepreneur and saw an opportunity. He negotiated to take the Dirt Devil vacuums to his facility – which saved TTI landfill costs and was the genesis of America's Remanufacturing Company.
Today, ARC is still a leader in floor care remanufacturing and resale, but those hand vacs were just the beginning. We are the only US company focused on a broad set of consumer products, including small appliances, floor care, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, power tools, outdoor power equipment, and more. We are Remanufacturing Redefined.
