ALPINE RESCUE



 

KARPOS AND VENETO ALPINE AND SPELEOLOGICAL RESCUE - JOINING FORCES FOR ANOTHER 3 YEARS TO ENHANCE SAFETY IN THE MOUNTAINS

The collaboration with the alpine rescue service is one of the greatest expressions of synergy between companies and the region. Manifattura Valcismon has always been closely connected with local events, organizations and institutions. The Karpos brand, immediately after its launch, began collaborating with the Veneto Alpine and Speleological Rescue to create the first high-visibility vest. Over time, the synergy led to a broader collaboration, with the signing in 2015 of a first sponsorship agreement with the Dolomiti Bellunesi Alpine Rescue. Under the terms of this agreement, Karpos would supply clothing for all the helicopter rescue specialists, canine units, and operations center personnel employed at the helicopter rescue bases of Pieve di Cadore and Treviso. In 2018 the brand took another step forward with the delivery of high-visibility technical jackets that had been developed by the Karpos R&D team and the alpine rescue specialists and tested in action by the latter over the previous 24 months.

Thanks to this growing collaboration, the partnership has been renewed for another three years. The two organizations will continue to pursue projects that are consistent with what has been developed and produced so far, with the aim of creating garments that set the standard for excellence in safety clothing for the mountains.
