PYPTEK is an American company founded in the heart of Colorado. Rooted in manufacturing, the brand is dedicated to the design, development, and manufacturing of the next generation of glass and metal pipes.
Taking its name from ‘PYP’ and ‘TEK,’ both serve as an abridgment of their full definitions, pipe and technology. The amalgamation of two distinct industries harnessed to set in motion PYPTEK’s larger mission: to set a high-water mark in the cannabis industry for products, professional excellence, and customer satisfaction.
The vision began back in 2012, when Matt Greenberg and James Humes turned in their keys to the traditional job arena and joined the cannabis industry. Instead of jumping into growing and horticulture, they planted their roots into the hard goods market and PYPTEK was born.
“Designed for Adventure. Your Lifestyle. Our Mission.” began to fuse as their products took headway in delivering an authentic smoking experience. Manufacturing all parts and pieces, from start to finish, in the USA, their approach to production allows an attention to detail that speaks to a new standard of excellence in the industry.
Some people would describe this feeling as getting outside, getting active, a hobby, and maybe that’s because they haven’t walked long enough to hear the gravel’s crunch become something you hum. That, my friend, is an experience. We soak our shoes, harness our concentration, make our way across broken tree trunks, peeling the bark behind us, and we move forward. We pretend to be invincible, strong, durable, climbing to the next epic view to capture timeless memories of ocean waves, lake waters, and creeks, high-fiving every shoreline. We take comfort in every good laugh, knowing that within the unchartered terrain we keep a small amount of our insanity locked away in really big smiles.
Dare to adventure. Your lifestyle. Our mission. PYPTEK.
In 2016 PYPTEK introduced a new brand identity set to become a more contemporary and authentic wordmark. The logo, losing “Prometheus” as a subsidiary long-standing relationship alongside PYPTEK allowed space for the amalgamation of PYP and TEK to clearly define the future evolution of the brand. Though the Prometheus lore is still true to the core of the brand, a champion of humankind if you will, PYPTEK harnesses fire and intelligence in their creation of The Full Collection, establishing their forethought in PYPTEK being the next evolution of pipes in the industry. From time to time, you’ll see the mythological character of Prometheus influence pieces among The Full Collection, while the brand moves into a more classic recognition.
PYP pronounced /paip/ stands as an acronym for Protect Your Piece a concept mirrored in the external hardware that makes PYPTEK’s products noteworthy in their durability and high-end engineering. While TEK, offers reflection upon both PYPTEK’s technological advancement, which the brand continues to evolve, and an accumulating body of adaptive processes that have been handed down through generations of cultural transmission highlighting a symbiotic relationship between human beings and their environment. PYPTEK, therefore emerges as a forward-looking statement inclusive of their mission: Dare to adventure. Your lifestyle. Our mission. Much more than a brand, a life-long collaboration across consumer, technology, environment, and it’s future.
