The Zimm's Story

As a second-generation, family-owned business, Zimm's has a storied history in the vacuum industry. Jack Zimmerman started out as a door-to-door vacuum salesman in the 1950s and later opened up his own vacuum cleaner sales and service store in Dearborn. In 1962, he moved the store to Livonia.

In 1974, Jack Zimmerman abruptly passed away. His 15-year old son Dan started managing the company that same year while his mom handled the books. In 1985, Dan saw an opportunity in selling central vacuum systems and started offering these alongside traditional, portable vacuums. By 2001, the market was large enough that he decided to close the storefront and focus solely on central vacuum systems.

Dan continues to run the business to this day and still helps out with service calls. Across the years, one thing has remained constant with Zimm's - a commitment to providing our customers with excellent products and services.
