They also bought Roper and Jenn Feng who owned the McCulloch name and I believe they also bought Frontier Chainsaws.
Not sure about Roper. But Black and Decker sold McCulloch to a group of the company's employees,  who were then forced to sell it to Shop Vac Corp.
By 1998 the company was closed by the banks and the rights to use the name in the US were auctioned to the Taiwanese Jenn Feng Co.
Electrolux picked up the rights to use the McCulloch name outside the US.
Makes sense for vacuum cleaner company (Electrolux) to buy out Shop Vac.
