DMM and Glenmore Lodge have just announced a new partnership, bringing together Scotland’s National Outdoor Training Centre with one of the world’s leading manufacturers of climbing equipment.
Glenmore Lodge, Scotland’s National Outdoor Training Centre, actively seeks to partner with industry brands and manufacturers to ensure quality of equipment for all students visiting the Centre as well as for its instructors.
The relationship secures the provision of technical equipment and harnesses, providing the basis of climbing racks for use in both winter and summer.
Jon Jones, Head of Rock & Mountain discipline, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with DMM, a company which shares the same passion for climbing as ourselves and a company that has been in the heart of the climbing community since their creation almost 40 years ago.”
He continued: “With thousands of students passing through our doors each year, we seek to provide equipment which is ideal for the unique Scottish environment, with our demanding winters and range of rock types. In all of our partnerships we actively seek to test product and provide feedback, helping future developments and also keeping this relevant to the Scottish environment.”
Rob Wilson, DMM’s Marketing & Sales Director, commented: “We are extremely pleased to be announcing this partnership. One with a shared value in commitment to the highest quality. Feedback from long-term product testing by the Lodge’s guides and instructors will be invaluable. Test environments don’t come much harsher than Scotland in winter. This year is the 70th anniversary of Glenmore Lodge in delivering world-class training in climbing and mountaineering and we’re proud to part of their future.”
DMM designs, manufactures, markets and sells high quality equipment for use in climbing, mountaineering, tree care, working at height, rope access and rescue. It was started by a small group of passionate climbers in 1981 and nearly forty years later continues to manufacture its hardware in north Wales.
