A.E. Carter Celebrates a
Successful 2017 VDTA Show

How to describe the VDTA Show in one word? "Busy!"Many dealers commented on their fun but busy time at this year's VDTA Show. The activity at the A. E. Carter booth followed this sentiment throughout the 3-day event with more new vacuum products on display than previous years. Dealers celebrated these new vacuum models as strong products to sell and continue moving the economic turnaround upward.

Hector Dominguez, Sales Representative for A. E. Carter, was eager to show the new Easy Made upright from Fuller Brush featuring a metal handle, metal brush roller, and metal power wand all at an MSRP of $269.99.

Mauricio Rosales, Sales Representative for A. E. Carter, demonstrated the new blue EON Quiet Pro vacuum from Sanitaire by Electrolux for homeowner use. It features an easy-change brush roller, washable HEPA filter, ceiling reach wand with on-board tools contained in a sleekly designed slim profile model, with an MSRP of $699.99. Vapamore introduced their new MR-750 Ottimo steamer featuring three hours of work time on a single fill. It is intended for homeowner and professional use, but with commercial grade construction.

The new Quick Maid cordless broom from Fuller Brush with an MSRP of $199.99 and two new uprights from Carpet Pro (commercial 8lb upright and CPU-250 tool on-board upright for homeowners, MSRP $179.99) were also on display.
