Welcome to AVAC Corporation

AVAC has partnered with ESSCO as our fulfillment warehouse for most dealer/distributor shipments. As you are probably aware our St Paul warehouse has closed so no “will call” orders are available at that location any longer.

This arrangement is a “win-win” for all involved. The cost benefits of ESSCO’s purchasing power, as well as their efficient, (2 warehouses nationwide) shipping capabilities, have resulted in faster shipping times, better fill-rates as well as cost savings to you, our valued AVAC customers.

In case you aren’t familiar with ESSCO we’ve linked to an ESSCO Information Packet so you can familiarize yourself with their operation and capabilities. Please click here to see a short presentation.

If you haven’t already established an account with us, an ESSCO account under your business name has to be created. To access ESSCOs website please go to www.essco.net and click on Request Site Access. You will receive an email with instructions on how to access the website shortly after you submit your request.

AVAC will continue to be your direct contact for orders, sales and technical needs. Please contact us by e-mail or phone (toll free) 800-282-2348 or (local) 651-222-0763 or (fax) 651-224-2674. We hope to hear from you whenever you need anything “vacuum cleaner” related.

Website Access Instructions:

To request access for ESSCO’s website go to: www.essco.net.  Click ‘Doing Business with ESSCO’ in the red toolbar.  Then click ‘Website Access Request’ in the left-hand column.  This page will ask for some basic contact information, ESSCO account number and a password.  It takes about 24 hours to process and you will receive an email confirmation once completed.  If you don’t know your new ESSCO account number please contact us at 800-328-9430 or by email at [email protected] so we can supply you with your new account number. And as always please contact us if you have any questions.
