Entre Prises was founded in France by Francois Savigny, an industrial engineer and rock climber, in 1983. Initially, the product was a selection of modular holds made of resinous concrete, the first commercially marketed climbing holds in the world! A few years later Savigny introduced his first panel system, called Profile. With these products, Savigny ushered in the era of modular, artificial rock climbing walls.
Francois had a dream of creating an international company. While visiting Bend, Oregon and climbing at Smith Rock in 1988, his dream became a reality. Francois teamed up with several prominent American climbers and Entre Prises USA was born.
The U.S. division is an integral component of the international Entre Prises company. Through shared technologies and cooperation, the international aspect of Entre Prises remains the driving force to the success of all of the divisions.
With manufacturing in the U.S., France, the United Kingdom and 28 worldwide distributors, Entre Prises has completed over 4,000 climbing wall projects worldwide and remains the world leader.
