We were delighted to welcome a very special visitor to Henry HQ last week. On Tuesday 21st May, 5-year-old Erik came to visit us all the way from Illinois, USA. Erik is one of Henry’s biggest fans and it was his Make-A-Wish to travel across the globe to visit the home of the iconic vacuum cleaner, here in Chard, Somerset. It didn’t take long for Erik to really begin impressing us with his Henry knowledge. In fact, we may even have learnt a thing or two!
After settling in, Erik was taken on a factory tour to see how Henry is made and to meet the Team behind that familiar, friendly face. Then it was time for the big surprise… Erik was invited to help make his very own “Erik” vacuum! We’ve never made an “Erik” before, so he truly is a one-of-a-kind and an appropriate cleaning companion for his young owner. We have no doubt that Erik will put “Erik” to very good use when he gets home, especially with his new AiroBrush on-hand.
To finish the day, Erik was given one final surprise as a lasting reminder of his visit… A big bag of Henry goodies!
We always love to hear from Henry’s fans. If you’d like to get in touch, comment below or contact us via the MyHenry Facebook Page.
