In Germany, several companies produced diving equipment. Ludwig von Bremen was one of the first. He started his business around 1870. One of the best known companies is Draeger, that is still in business today. You will notice that many early helmets were based on the French design. Many German companies copied the basic ideas and made some minor changes like spitcock, shape of air-inlet elbows and exhaust valves.
