TTI to Close Hoover Canton Facility
June 14, 2012,
GLENWILLOW, Ohio-TTI Floor Care North America will close its Hoover assembly facility in Canton, Ohio, at the end of this year.
The site serves as an assembly location for the Hoover Elite Commercial Upright vacuum line and for a few styles of vacuum bags. A TTI statement said the company based its decision on the discontinuation of the Elite line, which was launched 20 years ago, and the "significant" decrease in market demand for vacuum bags, given the surge in sales of bagless vacuums over the past 10 years.
