About Petzl


Founder Fernand Petzl's passion was for caving. Expertise in this began to grow with the design and crafting of solutions for ascending, descending, belaying and moving about in the dark. In 1970, the first "Fernand Petzl" brand products were produced in a workshop in Saint-Nazaire-Les-Eymes, Isère, France. Since then, the company that established in 1975, has grown into an international enterprise. All the while preserving its personal feel and the passion that drove Fernand.
