CAMP – TECHNICAL ADVENTURE EQUIPMENT
Passion, work and simplicity are some key-words that have always distinguished the way of doing of C.A.M.P.
The passion is the one for the mountain and for the products that help everyone that go out there to accomplish their dreams and projects; the work is the one handed on for more than 115 years by four different generations that succeeded to the helm of the company, and the simplicity that marks a way of doing and collaborating based on seriousness and fairness.
Those ingredients allow to answer with major strength and effectiveness to the demands of today’s market that calls for innovation, new proposals and solutions, fantasy and reliabilità, safety and fun. C.A.M.P.’s mission though is to conceive, design and develop innovative technical solutions which can improve safety, performance and effectiveness of the products bound to the most demanding customers of the outdoor and industrial markets.
All this passes through the culture of innovation that is deep-rooted in C.A.M.P.’s heart from the early days, and we can remember as an example the first ice-axe with metal shaft, the first crampon with rigid structure, the first modular ice-tool, the lightest carabiner at 33 grams. All this happens thanks to the constant presence on the field which is supported today by an organization that invests primarily in R&D, with the assistance of first-class technical advisors such as Tomaz Humar, Simone Moro, Denis Urubko, Valerio Folco, Cristian Brenna, just to name a few.
Today (2006) already more than 10% of the working force of C.A.M.P. is engaged in the Research & Development division, but the goal is to reach 20% in the near future.
The company’s structure allows by now to export products in 60 countries around the world, two of which (France and USA) are headed directly by dedicated facilities in the country. The distribution network is adequately supported by logistics structured on several hubs that allow deliveries in a few hours in every city of the world.
The relationship with the customers is seen more and more as a partnership where the collaboration is not limited to a mere commercial dealership, but implies reciprocal trust and participation in identifying the fundamental needs of the customer and the solutions that C.A.M.P. can offer.
RED CHILI – CLIMBING SHOE & APPAREL
BY STEFAN GLOWACZ – “Sun set when Uwe and I reached the summit plateau of El Cap tired and exhausted, after climbing the “West Face” in only one day.”
“Our feet were burning like hell in the way too tight climbing shoes that we had to wear. And then it came down on us, like a flash, like a vision. We saw a pair of shoes. A shoe that fits so perfect and so customized that even after twenty hard core pitches, or after half a day of bouldering, nothing hurts and climbing still is nothing but fun. The vision disappeared and after this enlightenment, we knew that something had to happen.”
“At this time Uwe and I tried to distribute a Spanish climbing shoe brand in Germany, but over and over again we had to drown our frustration about late delivery and unsatisfied customers in gallons of Rioja red vine. It was one of these nights when we sat in Uwe’s apartment drinking and listening to loud Red Hot Chili Peppers music, when we had our vision again. “Why don’t we fu$%&***in’ start manufacturing our own fu$%&***in’ climbing shoes? Who knows better than a climber what a climber really needs? You are a sales genius and I know how to develop and to build rock footwear.” We started to write this vision down and after waking up the next morning the first thing we saw on this red vine soaked piece of paper, were two words – Red Chili. We knew what we had to do.”
“Two years later the first pair of Red Chili rock shoes came to the stores. We were as proud as could be and still are. In a pretty short time the Red Chili brand established itself as one of the leading climbing shoe manufacturers world wide. Uwe still is the “marketing and sales force” behind everything that we are doing, whereas I am the front man and the master mind in developing and researching new products.”
“In the meantime red chili is ten years old. We have gained loads of experience in all respects, joined forces with the guys from the British “Cam Company” Wild Country and are more motivated then ever to build the most perfect rock climbing shoe in the whole wild world. Who else than we, the climbers, could do this job any better?”
