The Beginning


Enserink’s Vacuum Cleaner Centre was founded by Anton (Tony) Enserink.  Like many Dutch citizens, he decided to leave Holland after World War II and start a new life in Canada.  After settling in the Annapolis Valley, Tony became a door-to-door salesman for Electrolux.  On the doorstep, his customers were met with his warm smile, friendly demeanor, and thick Dutch accent.

He was often seen traveling the back roads of the Annapolis Valley in his old van delivering vacuum bags and supplies to his customers.

By 1969 Tony decided to set up a full-service sales and repair shop at his East Kingston home.  Tony expanded into the repair of all makes and models of vacuums.  He also sold new and used vacuums.  In the following years, Tony built a large and loyal customer base thanks to his sunny disposition and deep integrity.

After Tony passed in 1997, his well-established business continued within the family with his wife Ruth and her daughter Sheryl.

Several years later Ruth retired, and Sheryl’s husband Doug joined the team.
