Our Approach

We are striving to give people what they want and deserve. Confidence in the best materials and quality workmanship, for a reasonable price.

Our Story

"Vacu-Maid of BC" has been serving the Okanagan for over 50 years. Larry Friesen purchased the company from his cousin in 1996, and has installed thousands of systems since. We have choices and only sell what we believe in.

Lyndsay Manufacturing has been building our VacuMaid and AstroVac systems  their plant in Ponca City, Oklahoma for over 60 years. We get together once a year at the annual conventions around the world to update information, product knowledge and any upgrades or new innovations like "Hide-A-Hose" or "Wally Vacs".
