Storz & Bickel
Back in 1995, Markus Storz began the development of vaporizers, and patented the design for the very first removable valve balloon for the “Volcano Inhaler” in January 1998. In August 2000 Storz filed a patent for his invention of the heating block as a heat exchanger for “Hot Air Extraction Inhalers”. That same year, “Vapormed Inhalatoren” was founded and the sale of the “Volcano” began. In March of 2005, “Storz & Bickel America, Inc.” was founded in Oakland, California.
