In 1888, Dr Allen DeVilbiss founded DeVilbiss Manufacturing. Allen DeVilbiss was
a country doctor with simple values. The kind of doctor who tried to make life
easier for the folks he treated by finding better ways to care for them. Such
was the case more than a century ago when he developed the first DeVilbiss
atomizer, which made it possible to spray medication in a patient’s nose and
throat and eliminated the necessity for unpleasant and inefficient swabbing.
While the new atomizer was an instant success, the market at that time seemed to
be limited, and Dr. DeVilbiss could not find anyone who would manufacture the
device. As a result, he formed an individual proprietorship known as The
DeVilbiss Manufacturing Company, in Toledo, Ohio to make the atomizer. Soon he
perfected and patented an adjustable tip to control the spray, which increased
its usefulness tremendously.
The DeVilbiss Model 15 atomizer – one of the first models manufactured in the
new company – and many other earlier inventions are still part of the DeVilbiss
Healthcare product portfolio today.
DeVilbiss Healthcare is a global manufacturer and distributor of respiratory
therapy products and has established a reputation for excellence, both for the
