About this Organization
Ploom is a San Francisco start-up that focuses on creating a line of vaporizers that wed modern technologies and materials with beautifully simple design. The company was founded in 2007 in Palo Alto by two friends – James and Adam – who’s goal was to re-imagine the smoking paradigm.
Of the two, one was a smoker and the other was not. Ploom was born as the result of a conversation in which they asked what each other liked and disliked about smoking. Their website launched in 2009. The limited release of the Ploom Model One came the following year.
In 2012, Ploom announced the release of their Pax portable vaporizer, for which the company is best known. They also launched a redesign of their website the same year.
