HydraPak acquires Polar Bottle

Published November 9, 2018

OAKLAND, Calif. (BRAIN) — Hydration product maker HydraPak has acquired insulated bottle brand Polar Bottle.

Launched in 1994 by cyclists Robert Heiberger and Judy Amabile, Polar Bottle was the first reusable water bottle to address heat loss during long rides. With all components sourced near their home in Colorado and hiring local workers for manufacturing and distribution, Heiberger and Amabile produced an American-made insulated bottle that reduced environmental impact while supporting local and national economies. The company said it continues to maintain its focus on sustainability, philanthropy and environmental conversation.

"Robert and Judy had an incredible vision when they created Polar Bottle, bringing new innovation into the hydration market while also committing to a sustainable model of local production and profitable growth globally," HydraPak CEO Matt Lyon said. "Our brands share many common values, and we look forward to building on their legacy."

Polar Bottle will continue to operate on a stand-alone basis out of its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado.
