vapman was born in 2005, but its history began long before, in the late 90s in Biel, the center of the Swiss watchmaking industry, where the inventor René suddenly felt the urge to use his advanced technical knowledge to create a product, the use of which represents an added value for everyone. His passion for herbal medicine brought to his attention the, at that time still largely unknown, topic of "thermal extraction". He quickly realized the great potential of this principle. From then on, he put his full dedication into the development of a perfect thermal extractor - this made him a pioneer in this sector. Then, at the turn of the century, his first thermal extractor saw the light of the world. It was a tabletop model with a fixed power connection.
René’s first idea for something portable was a muscle powered device, it was already working fine, but he realized that this was not the final solution...
After years of development, the time had finally come: the first vapman prototype was born - at that time the first battery-free powered thermal extractor.
After about a year, the second prototype was ready
Some fine-tuning followed, and the vapman was finally ready for market release in 2005
Especially through word-of-mouth advertising, it soon enjoyed a considerable reputation among vape enthusiasts. René, who himself has become a great lover of his vapman, continuously manufactured all the vapmans by himself. After almost twenty years of real world resting, the vapman has done valiantly and continues to live up to its claims, but René, due to his advanced age, is no longer capable of producing vapmans himself.
Because of our love for vapman, we have teamed up with René to give the vapman a worthy future. We are Michael & David, and with René as our mentor, we have taken the vapman once again under the microscope and improved it with final touches. Full of pride, we now offer you this completed thermal extraction device.
The production is based in South Tyrol (Italy), not far from the birthplace of the vapman, in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Dolomites". Since our homeland is very dear to us, environmentally conscious actions are one of our top priorities. Of course, we will remain true to our roots and values and continue to provide you with nothing but the best.
