This is a short piece I put together for BlueWater Ropes that takes you on a tour of their cutting edge factory in Georgia, where everyday they weave the best ropes in the business!!!

BlueWater traces its roots to a family-owned business that began manufacturing ropes and cordage in 1903. Our modern history began in 1969 when we manufactured the first American-made kernmantle caving rope. This rope went on to become the now famous BlueWater II +Plus™. The standard in quality and durability. In 1975 we introduced the first synthetic low elongation rope for fire and industrial high-rise rescue. Synthetic nylon fiber was a radical departure from the norm of one inch manila ropes that were in use. Our UL Classified NFPA 19832006 edition life safety ropes have become the most widely used ropes of this type in the country and are the first choice of fire and rescue groups around the world. We followed in 1982 with the first commercially available line of UIAA certified dynamic climbing ropes made in the U.S.A. These ropes rapidly gained popularity with climbers due to their unsurpassed quality and performance.

In 1995 BlueWater became the first American manufacturer in our industry to obtain ISO 9000 Certification. ISO 9000 is an internationally recognized Quality Management system. It insures the highest possible quality in manufacturing and service. Constant monitoring of raw materials, component parts and in-line processes by our fully equipped laboratory is an essential part of our ISO Program. This guarantees no deviation in the manufacturing process. The ISO program requires substantial dedication from BlueWater but we know it is worth the effort. It insures you are receiving undeniably the best products available today. The entire program is third party certified to meet the rigid ISO standards guaranteeing our quality system is everything we say it is.

Das GriGri+ von Petzl ist die dritte Weiterentwicklung des klassischen GriGri. Es darf ohne Zweifel als Benchmark am Sicherungsgerätemarkt angesehen werden. Zusätzlich zu den herkömmlichen Funktionen verfügt das GriGri+ über eine Anti-Panik-Funktion und über zwei Bedienmechanismen. Diese erlauben, zwischen Toprope und Vorstieg umzuschalten. Dabei wird das Ansprechverhalten des Klemmnockens beeinflusst, was ein schnelleres Ansprechen der Blockierfunktion im Toprope-Modus bewirkt.

"The family company originated with my father, Fernand Petzl, and his passion for caving. One of the leading experts of his generation, he spent his life experimenting with new vertical progression techniques and invented equipment that radically changed the status quo. The Petzl company quickly applied these underground tools and solutions to other vertical environments: to the mountains first - rock climbing and mountaineering - and then to the professional sector, with work and rescue at height. Petzl is now known as the leading innovator in the vertical world and has been associated with all major underground, alpine and Himalayan adventures since the 1970s. While closely involved with outdoor sports enthusiasts and professionals, we remain true to our core values and ways: listening to and valuing our customers, taking innovative and practical approaches and demanding the highest quality."

Paul Petzl, Foundeur, President.
