It all began in the 1930s with one man: Fernand PETZL, a craftsman and caver.
From the beginning, the Petzl signature on products has simply been the Petzl family's commitment to producing the best tools for users. The adventure began with Fernand Petzl's passion for caving. The expertise and know-how of a craftsman were born in the design and production of solutions for climbing, descending, safety and progress.
