Petzl Foundation presentation
Petzl, a beatiful story of humanity and industry
"Our family business began in a small workshop near Grenoble. 30 years of innovation have given Petzl a worldwide reputation as a pioneer and leader in vertical access and lighting equipment. Our company continues to grow. High-caliber employees and a strong financial structure have enabled us to remain independent while maintaining our profitability.
Since the beginning, I have worked to build a dream future for my company: aiming to develop a respected and successful business. This new step, the creation of the Petzl Foundation, is the realization of my dreams. It will provide us with opportunities to give back to the community that has enabled us to exist and thrive.
I want to develop Petzl’s presence throughout the world by creating links to share knowledge and by implementing practical actions. Our intention is to assist others in their efforts to improve the well-being of our community and to preserve the environment".
