The business continues to grow in size, expand its territories, and remains the leader in the industrial vacuuming industry.

President – Daniel K. Mahmood

Dan Mahmood is President and owner of Industrial Vacuum Services, Inc. He maintains active involvement in all aspects of the company, and is responsible for day to day management, sales, operations, safety, client relations, finances and employee training and management.

Dan began his career in the industry as an outside sales representative for an industrial vacuum company in Seattle, Washington. During this time, he learned and acquired all of the skills and knowledge that would enable him to begin his own industrial vacuuming company.

In 1996, Dan relocated to Charlotte, NC with his wife, Jennifer, who started a new event marketing firm in Charlotte that specialized in college and sports marketing. Upon arrival in Charlotte, Dan saw an immediate need for industrial vacuuming. His first year of employment in Charlotte was as an outside sales representative for a rental tool company. This helped establish his knowledge of the area and developed relationships that would continue through the creation of IVAC.

In 1998 Dan started Industrial Vacuum Services, with one truck and one driver. Over twenty years later, the fleet has grown significantly and the company employs several full-time crews. Industrial Vacuum Services has an excellent reputation in the industry for quick response, safety, knowledge, efficiency, and exceptional customer service. Dan would like to thank all of his customers over the years for the opportunity to serve them and grow IVAC into the industry leader it is today.
