Goblin Vacuum Cleaners
was a British
brand of vacuum cleaners
made from the early 1900s till the early 2000s.
Goblin Vacuum Cleaners was one of the large factory industries in the Surrey town of Leatherhead, Ashtead area. Having such a large work forced it even had its own social club on site for staff.
The factory was located at the top of Ermyn Way with the Roman Road, Stane Street, making up its southern border.
In the early 80s the company changed its name to BVC, British Vacuum Cleaners, though the new name never stuck with staff and locals.
In 1985 the company decided to cease operations at the Leatherhead plant and move to Gosport, Hampshire.
The plant closed its doors in May 1986. After years of sitting empty the site was bought and built on by Esso.
