The Numatic Henry vacuum cleaner has become an instantly recognisable icon with his smiling face. Something of a marketing master-stroke by British vacuum cleaner manufacturer Numatic.
For those of here in the South West we see the little ‘Henry Hoover’ as our own, with them being made at Numatic’s factory in Chard, Somerset. And of course before the factory moved across the county boundary Numatic cleaning machines were built in Beaminster on the site now occupied by Clipper Teas.
But do you know what your Henry gets up to when he is not cleaning carpets? Well someone has made a YouTube video which suggests he has a rather expensive ‘habit’!
