About Ninth Planet Beverage Solutions
Fast, efficient mobile canning service with exceptional quality control.
Ninth Planet Beverage Solutions was founded on the premise that craft beverage producers deserve and desire a high level of quality control in their packaging and presentation regardless of the production size or output of their business operations. Successful smaller producers looking to grow their businesses should be able to place their upfront capital on marketing needs rather than on packaging machinery, particularly if they cannot independently afford equipment of the quality and speed that will best match the quality of their products.
Ninth Planet was created to provide a reliable and affordable packaging service to those small and mid-sized growing producers who wish not to sacrifice quality control or presentation in the growth of their product to additional sales outlets. We will always make use of the highest quality equipment available, to provide a reliable, logistically convenient and affordable can packaging solution for our client producers.
We view our business as the premium option for growing small beverage producers. It is our goal to provide our premium packaging option to as many producers as possible.
We look to be a profitable business that responsibly cares for its employees and the broader business community. Our responsibility is to our employees, owners, and investors, but also to the broader business community of small beverage producers which embodies our clientele. This responsibility extends beyond our core clientele to the other ancillary businesses that serve the beverage industry, including raw material suppliers and manufacturers.

Accounts and Business Development
Ninth Planet Beverage Solutions was founded by Josh Schaffner in 2015. Josh has been a professional advocate for craft beverage producers since he launched NY Craft Beer Week in 2008. Having worked with craft breweries large and small on their sales, marketing and promotions initiatives, Josh fully understands the value of a quality and flavorful product—and doing everything possible to maintain that quality and flavor while conveying just as much to the consumer. He passionately supports small businesses and the communities they represent, particularly through recycling and sustainability initiatives. He has overseen Ninth Planet through its development as a mobile beverage can packaging operation, beverage packaging consultancy and equipment leasing programs, and now as a co-packaging and contract beverage production facility. Josh has two children, who strength trained from the early age of six months by carrying quadpacks of cans around the house.
Brandon joined Ninth Planet in 2019. Previously, he worked in artisanal cheese and yogurt production for five years, where he was the creamery manager in charge of all day to day production and operations. When the creamery's operations were designated for relocation to a new facility, he designed and oversaw the construction of a new 25,000sq ft facility. There, he also created the systems for food safety, air and water management, product development, and workflow. Prior to food manufacturing, Brandon worked in the kitchens of restaurants throughout New York City and spent a year working in the IT field at Columbia University. Brandon takes great pride in problem solving and his three children.
