Polar Bottle maker doubles work space

The company has leased 32,000 square feet of space at 4601 Nautilus Court in the Twin Lakes area off 63rd Street. President and co-founder Judy Amabile said in an email that the company intends to be moved in by the end of December.
Product Architects has 15,000 square feet at 5637 Arapahoe Ave., where the company has been for three years. The company employs 47 full-time employees in addition to about a dozen temporary employees.
"We've run out of space here," company spokeswoman Adeline Bash said. "I think it's safe to say based on the sales we had last year we're hoping for substantial growth."
Founded in a garage in 1994, Product Architects designs, manufactures and ships its water bottles all over the world from its Boulder location.
The privately held company doesn't disclose revenues. But Bash said a chunk of the growth of the company is attributable to the introduction this year of a pair of new product lines - their Ergo lifestyle bottle and their ThermaLuxe stainless steel bottle.
