Planetary Design is a Montana based manufacturing company that prides itself on providing products with the perfect fusion of design and durability ~ things that make everyday life just a little more enjoyable.  In fact, we were the first to design the personal French Press Mug - an idea that came about to the inventor when he shattered his glass French Press in the mountains of the Bob Marshall Wildnerness.
It's this kind of adventurous spirit that keeps us in Montana and hopefully compels people like you to work for us.
