It all began in the 1930s with one man: artisan and caver Fernand Petzl. Petzl's mission is to create innovative tools and services that allow men and women to progress, position, and protect themselves in vertical environments, as well as to light their way in the dark.
The Petzl research department in Crolles, France, integrates all the fields related to product design: mechanical, textile, electronic, optic, and computing. Starting at the design and prototype phases, the reliability of the product and user safety are continually evaluated with a strong focus on risks to the user.
Our purchasing and quality control teams work closely with suppliers to guarantee a standard of product reliability and quality that meets our requirements. During the manufacturing phase, quality control is present at every step of the production chain: auto-inspection of operations by machines, human inspection at key points, further reinforced by error-proof systems and final individual inspection of each product
