A click through to www.mountain-works.co.uk will show you the vast range of technical summer and winter climbing gear, caving and safety equipment, Nordic walking accessories, via ferrata sets and great packs & bags made specifically for the sports we love. Urban adventure is NOT a phrase you hear during a CT sales pitch! These guys are very serious about design, development and testing their gear to the max with the entire range either made at their factory in Italy, sourced from within Italy or Made in Europe. All production processes adhere to the high levels you would expect of an ISO 9001:2000 certified company complete with a dynamic R&D department and very busy test laboratory performing on average one rupture test every six minutes!!!!
Now, it is easy to believe that such a slick company with more than 100 staff may be working more towards corporate efficiency than dedicated climbing values but that is just not so – in fact it is still run by and solely owned by the climber and engineer that started the company way back in 1986, Mr Carlo Paglioni. His personal influence can be seen throughout the company where any e-mail, telephone call or meeting is dealt with swiftly, politely and in entirety. In short, Climbing Technology are a pleasure to deal with and as their sole UK agents; Mountain Works strive to pass on that ethos.
Of course, such an amazing company hasn't just arrived in Italy overnight. The Climbing Technology brand has evolved from the factories' long heritage as one of the world leaders in developing and manufacturing products for other brands in the market place. In 2008 they produced a mere 10 million pieces for both the sport climbing and Work at Height markets which is why the eagle eyed among you may well have been wondering why some items looked a little familiar ...
So what makes the CT range different from the huge choice of climbing gear out there? Well, with over 20 patents there is certainly a lot to talk about!
And that's not even scratching the surface of their vast range of climbing hardware, crampons, ice axes, ice screws, winter safety gear, ropes, caving equipment, rescue gear, via ferrata kits, bolt sets, slings, cams, wires, harnesses, packs, chalk, walking poles, gloves or helmets!!
Climbing Technology is not only a brand that is here to stay but with it's well proven track record for producing the highest quality product and passionate staff who are committed to bringing you the very best in engineering and product development you can be sure that we will be seeing many innovative new products joining the range in the years to come.
