The contract is signed for Clip ‘n Climb centre number 100 with a December 2016 opening in Amsterdam, Holland.
This will cap a successful year for the ‘fun climbing’ industry market leader.
The company is predicting significant further international expansion of the brand in 2017.
Multi award winning Clip ‘n Climb was conceived in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2005. Since then, demand for its fun climbing walls has increased year on year. Exponential growth over the past two years has required expansion of its manufacturing facilities in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and China.
Co-founder John Targett, says: “The international success of Clip ‘n Climb is a testimony to the company’s commitment to quality and innovation. That commitment and a deep understanding of the market has resulted in the emergence of Clip ‘n Climb as a genuine global brand.” Clip ‘n Climb is now enjoyed by people in over 30 countries, from Colombia to China and from South Africa to Finland.
Clip ‘n Climb has come a long way in the last decade since the day it revolutionised the sport of climbing and transformed it into a popular mainstream activity. Its unique and exciting climbing challenges continue to be people magnets around the world. The company estimates that close to 5 million people currently enjoy healthy challenging fun at Clip ‘n Climb centres each year.
CEO Eric Surdej says: “The company is extremely proud to have reached this significant milestone. We are confident that the current period of sustained growth will continue through clear strategies to increase our customer base.”
Clip ‘n Climb has a presence at all the international amusement industry trade shows. The final and largest show of the year was the annual International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) show in Orlando in November.
The company will then celebrate the opening of the 100th centre at the European Clip ‘n Climb owner’s conference in December.
