We're a small, hyper-dedicated team with a collective passion for rosin technology, quality products, and customer service.
Ben Britton - Co-Founder, Lead Engineer
I am fascinated by the way the individual components of machines work together to solve a problem. I believe in organization over force and that any machine is only as good as its weakest part. Integrity is important to me and I engineered every aspect of the Pikes Peak Rosin Press with the customers needs in mind. After graduating from CU Boulder with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, I worked for a large corporation as the lead engineer doing product development and machine design. Although this experience was a valuable step towards where I am now, the corporate life was not for me so I decided to go into machine design consulting. When my friend Josh Rutherford came to me with the idea for a Rosin Press I saw a product that had enormous potential for improvement in a continuously growing industry. A few months later we had a prototype that blew the competition out of the water. We kept tweaking and improving features until the Pikes Peak Rosin Press was born. I am really excited to be forging the way with PurePressure. Rosin is a product that is true to its source and is only growing in popularity.
When I am not at PurePressure, I can be found in the mountains in my massive van that I converted to 4WD for off road adventures and has proven a great second home for powder filled winters. I also like fish and the bugs that catch them. I look forward to leading this new industry with unrivaled innovation and unmatched quality.

Eric Vlosky - Director of Marketing
Kyle Manuel - Industrial Designer
Inspiration is for amateurs because ideas are a dime-a-dozen. Vision, persistence and dedication are fundamental to successful innovative solutions. This is how Pure Pressure stands out from the competition, and also why product design and development have fueled my passion since college. I received my Bachelor in Industrial Design from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I started my design career in NYC working for design consultancies developing consumer electronics, medical devices, home appliances & even package design. My desire to rock climb and be outdoors brought me to Colorado where my design career was forced to evolve because of the industry. A blessing in disguise, Denver’s manufacturing and production driven market has accelerated my career experiences to help refine my mechanical engineering and utilitarian design abilities. Ben Britton and I have a long standing professional engineering relationship. Ben started grooming me to come on with PurePressure since the conception of the Pikes Press. As a member of the Pure Pressure team my number one goal is to continue to provide an unparalleled product line that meets all our customers’ processing needs.
Dino Chatham - Lead Manufacturer
Scott Christensen – Operations Manager
I believe in a customer first philosophy and with that if you take care of your people they will go to great lengths to take care of our customers. I completed my Bachelors and Master’s Degrees in Human Resource Management and spent 16 years working for a large corporation in several different capacities and locations. My most recent project relocated me from Nebraska to Aurora, CO to turn around a formerly profitable facility whose sales had declined nearly 60% and losing several millions annually. We had five years to return sales back to pre-decline levels and breakeven. The team did it in four and with $2m less in sales than we thought we’d need. We were rewarded with the closure of our facility
and all the equipment moved to SC. At that point I needed a change. With my background in HR, quality, project management, production operations and LEAN manufacturing I was looking to start my own business or purchase an existing one, but hadn’t quite found the right opportunity. I had stayed close to Ben and his new start up, Pure Pressure, since before its inception and was always very intrigued by the businesses potential. So when I found myself between jobs Ben and Josh just happen to be in a position of growth with a new facility and new equipment launches in the works, I took the bait to perform some contract work. Shortly after my start I was fortunate enough to come on full time and join a team that consisted of four of my former colleagues, and I couldn’t be happier.
Holly Coddington - Sales Associate
I have a background in education and content writing which lends itself well to learning everything there is to know about rosin and its concentrate competition. I thrive off new experiences and am happiest in fast paced environments. The cannabis industry is a new and exciting space and it is fun to work for a company at the forefront. When I am not at PurePressure I'm in the mountains backcountry skiing, hiking, or camping with my dog Charlie.
