Place of Origin

Maker Wrappler Electric Company

Maker Details Located in New York. Started in 1900ish, and the founder, Reinhold Wrappler, died in 1932. He founded this company so that endoscopic instruments did not need to take as long to repair-orignally the instruments needed to be sent to Europe for repair, which took too long for Americans.
