Boveda Inc. is a privately held corporation based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Founded in 1997, Boveda Inc. is the global leader in 2-way humidity control for a multitude of industries and applications.
Our patented products allow companies and end-users to preserve moisture-sensitive products over extended periods of time with zero maintenance. Boveda's patended technology was co-engineered in 1996 by Albert Saari, Ph.D., a formulations chemist, and Robert Esse, a high-level packaging expert, both from General Mills Corporation.
The company was incorporated as a Minnesota corporation in June 1997, and in December 1998, they were granted their first patent for 2-way humidity control. All of the 31-claims submitted to the U.S. Patent Office were accepted in the original patent. Since then, many international patents have also been awarded.
In addition to the original patent, Boveda has been awarded (or has submitted) several other patents relating to 2-way humidity control for packaging, including multi-purpose Boveda packs that, in addition to managing moisture, Oxygen absorber and/or Mold prevention|control mold all in one pack.
Before 2012, Boveda Inc. was officially named Humidipak Inc. The company's 2-way humidity control products were sold under two different brand names, Humidipak and Boveda, even though the company, product and technology were exactly the same.
In an effort to reduce confusion in the marketplace, the company decided to unify their products under the Boveda brand name in 2011. The company ownership and leadership was not affected in any way by the name and branding consolidation.
