Product Architects/Polar Bottle - Judy Amabile, President

Since 1994 Product Architects Inc./Polar Bottle(TM) has manufactured and distributed the original insulated water bottles. The family-run company started out of a Boulder, Colorado garage with the Polar Bottle Sport(TM) – the first insulated water bottle on the market. At that time, it had only one employee. Still based in Boulder, the company today employs close to 50 people and has expanded its product line with innovative insulated bottle designs, including the Polar Bottle Ergo(TM) and Polar Bottle Thermaluxe(TM). Judy Amabile is the president and co-founder of Product Architects Inc./Polar Bottle. When the company started, she personally traveled around Colorado selling the sport bottles to local bike shops. Since then, she has kept an active role in the company, helping oversee everything from accounting and finance to sales, marketing and production. Judy lives in Boulder with her dog and three sons. In her free time she enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, traveling and spending time with her siblings, nieces and nephews (most of whom at one point been employed at her company).
