Oreck Corporation, manufacturer of vacuum cleaners, air purifiers and other home products, opens an additional U.S. manufacturing facility Oct. 24, in Cookeville, Tennessee, U.S. This major expansion for the 43-year-old, family-run company is positive economic news in an otherwise declining American manufacturing climate.

American manufacturing lost nearly 2.8 million jobs since 2001, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics. "Oreck's selecting Tennessee underscores the value and productivity of our workforce and brings an economic boost to the area," said Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen.

At the official opening of the new Oreck Cookeville plant, the first Oreck vacuum cleaner to roll off the assembly line will be signed by Oreck employees, Tom and David Oreck and presented to Gov. Bredesen.

New jobs created by Oreck consist of assembly, material handlers, skilled trades, some professional and maintenance positions.

The Oreck family was named "Heroes of Katrina" by CNN. After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Oreck Corporation was the first to reopen a plant on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, just 10 days after the storm. They were also first to reopen a national headquarters in New Orleans. Oreck saved jobs and gave hope by bringing in food, water, housing, generators, medical supplies and counselors for their employees in the aftermath of the worst natural disaster in the history of this nation.
