Founded in 1927 by Adam Breuer, Sr., Breuer Electric Mfg. Company began in a small facility at 852 Blackhawk Street in Chicago. Originally building and selling portable electric blowers for cleaning electric equipment, Breuer soon began designing and producing commercial and industrial vacuum cleaners, hot air blowers, electric insecticide sprayers, and dust collectors. It was at this time that the brand name "Tornado" was introduced. In 1938 the company moved to 5100 N. Ravenswood on Chicago's North Side.

In 2007 Tornado Industries was acquired by Tacony Corporation and operates as a subsidiary in the Commercial Floor Care division. Tacony is organized into four strategic business units; Commercial Floor Care, Home Floor Care, Sewing, and Ceiling Fans and Lighting.
