The tightly coiled smoke spiral from the recurve propeller of a Super Vacuum Manufacturing Company smoke ejector is symbolic of not only the dominance that Super Vac has in the fire service ventilator field, but also a symbol for the way that the firm’s management focuses on the minutest detail of the needs of the fire service. Through that focus, they produce the finest fire service products available. Super Vac incorporated in 1954 and quickly began the expansion of the ventilator line. To maintain their exacting line of quality control it soon became apparent that all manufacturing would have to take place in-house. Then Super Vac built its own foundry, extensive machine shops, and a powder coating facility, so that all Super Vac parts leave with the finest finish. As the firm grew, so did the variety of fans; electric, gas-driven, hydraulic, water driven and compressed air units, from 1/3 horsepower to more than 500 horsepower, all for different applications within the fire service.

Super Vac became a manufacturer of apparatus when a local fire department needed a rescue truck. Other departments saw the quality and attention to detail in the unit and placed orders. The apparatus business grew, and today, SVI Trucks annually delivers about 50 custom trucks in eight models; light, medium, heavy, and walk-in rescue, hazmat, command, rescue pumper, and light/air. Super Vac management has volunteered with local fire departments, and over the years, became concerned with the inadequacies of fire scene lighting. So they developed and patented a new concept in scene lighting; an electrically operated robotics arm lighting system, in several sizes and lighting configuration, which they market under the name Command Light. The Command Light product line includes a variety of lights for all different purposes, from robotic light towers to traffic flow boards, to elevated warning lights for emergency vehicles.

Super Vacuum Manufacturing Company grew under the direction of Erv Weinmeister, past president and still active in day to day operations. The management team is made up of Roger Weinmeister overseeing the Super Vac and Command Light Division, Ron Weinmeister, head of the SVI Trucks, Tammy Sorensen as vice president of finance and administration, and Bob Sorensen as head of SVI Truck sales and marketing.

As the Super Vac recurve propeller produces a tightly focused smoke spiral, so the Weinmeister family wiII continue it’s tight focus on producing the finest products in the fire service, with the highest possible quality.
