Our History

The Multi-Vac Difference

Multi-Vac is the product of decades of hands-on experience in the industry, creative engineering, and proven technology. Our commitment to design excellence has resulted in a versatile line of industrial vacuums that are safer, lower maintenance, and built to last.

We don’t just sell vacuums, we provide solutions. When standard models don’t fit the application, we engineer something that will.

Wally Haag - Owner, M&W Shops & Multi-Vac
Meet Wally Haag.

The president, owner, and visionary engineer behind Multi-Vac’s custom industrial vacuum technology began his career back in 1974 manufacturing industrial vacuums at a company called Hi-Vac.

In 1980, Wally decided that it was time to take his years of engineering and metal fabrication experience and develop his own brand of industrial vacuum technology. That year, he became part owner of a custom metal fabrication shop, M & W Shops, Inc., in order to do just that. By 1990, Wally took full ownership of M & W Shops, and put his heart and soul into developing a new type of low-maintenance industrial vacuum system that could outlast the competition. That concept eventually became known as Multi-Vac.
