The year 1981 saw Sandra Day O’Connor become the first woman to ever serve on the Supreme Court of the United States and the release of Steven Spielberg’s classic adventure movie, “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” It also saw the launch of Atrix International, a family-owned business in Burnsville, Minnesota that has grown from humble beginnings to become the leading U.S. manufacturer of portable, industrial vacuums with ultrafine filtration.
