The Corporate Office for Vac-Alert Industries is located in Vero Beach, Florida, with an additional administrative office located in Santa Rosa, California. Vac-Alert Industries first incorporated in 1997.
The original prototype for our life-saving product was conceived in 1996 when one of our founders read a newspaper article about a 6-year old boy who was trapped by the suction force at the drain in his backyard spa.
First patented by Kevin Mulvey in 1997, and constructed by Marv Ruschell a master machinist, Vac-Alert began production in 1997 of its Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) in Ft. Pierce, Florida. The first units were primarily sold to commercial applications in Ohio, South Carolina and Texas.
Over the years, engineer George Pellington, along with Marv Ruschell and Kevin Mulvey continued to work diligently on perfecting the Vac-Alert SVRS, resulting in a number of new patents.
Paul Pennington became president of Vac-Alert Industries in 2000. The company has enjoyed considerable growth in recent years, reaching out to North America and many other parts of the world.
