Trango, the Colorado-based designer and manufacturer of premier climbing gear and holds, is proud to announce that Roy Quanstrom has joined the brand as Facility Sales Coordinator.

The Facility Sales Coordinator position is new for Trango. There are 657 commercial gyms in the US and a total of 1390 “wall accounts” (commercial gyms plus rec center and universities with climbing walls). Quanstrom will be working with Trango’s independent sales teams to enhance the relationship within these communities and organizations.  

“Working with the Trango team and our gym partners is really a dream job for me,” says Quanstrom. “I’m very excited about Trango’s climbing hold development, especially with our new line of ABS recyclable holds that are made from recycled materials. We offer more material options than any other brand, with a focus on sustainability and I’m proud to be part of it.”

Quanstrom brings a strong background in climbing holds, routesetting (he’s a USAC Level 4 routesetter), as well as extensive sales and retail experience. He has been working as a Trango Holds Shaper since 2020; his hold designs include the popular Fuegos Calientes and Khans. Quanstrom is also known for his excellent climbing skills; one of the prerequisites for Level 4 routesetting is that you must be able to forerun 5.13+ and V9. 

“Roy is a great addition to our team,” says Trango Vice President, Keith Patterson. “His knowledge and experience with holds and setting, as well as his relationships with setters, mesh well with Trango’s focus on deepening partnerships with gyms. Roy’s expertise in leading routesetter training clinics also positions him well when it comes to training our sales force on the hold market. We have high expectations for Roy and are confident he will be successful. We are excited to have Roy join our team.”
