In 2007, the Helix design was well received all around Texas, and quickly became the top selling hand piece in most shops. Finding that I could not keep up with production the search began for a partner in 2008. That partnership began in Austin with a burgeoning manufacturer/distributor. Together, we grew the Helix to be the #1 selling hand pipe in American in 2010.
As in some partnerships, our goals and ideals began to differ. I pulled away in 2012 to start a company that focused on quality, in both our pieces and our relationships with our retailers. That company has grown into American Helix.
