STORZ & BICKEL
STORZ & BICKEL built the first factory in the world for the manufacture of medical herbal Hot Air Generators in Tuttlingen, a German town with almost 500 medical device manufacturers, reputed to be the center of medical technology, where the first factory for the production of surgical instruments was built more than 150 years ago.
Over the years, the VOLCANO has developed a cult following among connoisseurs and a status symbol for users. Today, the VOLCANO CLASSIC is our flagship product and the best-known Hot Air Generator. And what many don’t know is that when the VOLCANO CLASSIC was launched in 2000, it served a niche market as one of the first well-functioning Hot Air Generators worldwide. In 1996, Markus Storz came across an article suggesting that herbs do not necessarily have to be burned but can also be inhaled more gently using vaporization. The idea immediately captivated him, and he built himself a Hot Air Generator using a glass pipe and a hot air gun. The mode of operation convinced him immediately, but handling the heat gun construction was very laborious in the long run. So… Markus decided to build a device that would simplify the usage.
