EP Climbing, a company known for its innovation in commercial climbing walls and holds, is excited to announce a new partnership with Peak Performance Polymers for all its climbing hold manufacturing needs. With over 35 years of experience in the industry, EP Climbing has continued to adapt to changing times and technologies, and this partnership marks the next step in that journey.

“We know how important it is to provide a lasting product that looks good, works well, and can be in your hands in a reasonable amount of time,” said Joey Jannsen, Hold & Volume Sales Manager for EP USA.. “It’s about time we were honest with ourselves and honest with all of you: our material hasn’t been up to snuff – and we are ready to make that change!”

Peak Performance Polymers has a reputation for producing high-quality polyurethane holds that are durable, high quality, and available in a wide range of colors. With this new partnership, EP Climbing customers can expect improved material and expanded shipping options with the ability to combine shipments with other leading brands. EP Climbing is also excited to offer a very fast 10-day turnaround on orders, ensuring that customers receive their holds in a timely manner.

In addition to these manufacturing improvements, EP Climbing has many new shapes ready to be released. The company is “cleaning house” by scraping outdated shapes and replacing them with new and improved, modern holds. Look for these new families of holds in the next few months as EP Climbing continues to expand and adapt its catalogue.

“We see what you want, and we hear what you need. We are ready and excited to make this change and continue the legacy of EP for another 35 years!” said Bryce Benge, CEO for EP USA.

EP Climbing has always been dedicated to providing climbers with the best possible experience, and this partnership with Peak Performance Polymers is a testament to that commitment. The company is excited to see where this new journey will take them and looks forward to continuing to innovate and evolve in the climbing industry.
