The Stork Legacy Begins...
When John Schneider, founder of Hollister Incorporated. recognized that a sterile, disposable circumcision device was desperately needed, the PlastiBell® Circumcision Device was invented in 1958. The innovation in creating the PlastiBell® was being able to perform the circumcision with a product that was sterile, safe, economical, and disposable. This did not exist prior to the PlastiBell®.
The Quick Rise and Expansion
In 1965, Hollister built a new manufacturing facility in Kirksville, Missouri to build the growing line of innovative obstetrics products. Nearly 50 years later, Stork®, a division of Briggs Healthcare, acquired the hospital obstetrics product line that was Invented, developed and produced by Hollister. In 2021, the Stork® product line was acquired by Aspen Surgical. Aspen is proud that these products are still produced in the same factory as they have been for generations. And we will continue to honor the legacy of the brand and the quality and safety of our products.
