One Planet as it is today is the culmination of mergers between Aiking Equipment, Adventure Designs and One Planet, and owned by Managing Director Andrew King. (He’s got a bit of experience in the industry: he first began making rucksacks in 1988!)
One Planet is a small company, employing around 30 people. It is very much a hands-on operation, with everything from design to production to sales done from the Melbourne factory and office, allowing real control over quality, the company’s direction, customer satisfaction, and just about everything else. Their Melbourne factory is also carbon neutral! Which is not something a lot of factories can call themselves.
