PolyDrop was birthed out of the collaboration of a team of students and researchers at the University of Washington. That team included degree holders and candidates in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biosresource Science, Law and Business Administration. Team members had already gained scientific and business experience with corporations such as Boeing, Alcoa, and Microsoft.
Initially, PolyDrop was just a product, but in 2013, the development team branded both the product and the company as PolyDrop. The objective of the new corporate team is to drive the full-scale production and commercialization of the PolyDrop product to fulfill needs that have long been unmet in the aerospace industry and many others.
