ORTOVOX

Gerald Kampel did not listen to the voices that said it was impossible. Instead, he listened to his inner voice telling him: 'you can make the world of mountain sports a safer place'.

And that's exactly what he did. In 1980, Kampel developed the F2 dual-frequency avalanche transceiver, which would revolutionize avalanche search and rescue and mark the beginning of Ortovox. The name 'Ortovox' is a portmanteau, a hybrid word combining 'Ortung' (the German word for detection) and the Latin word 'vox', meaning voice. For more than 40 years, the company has been following its inner voice and developing products that make its founder's first love - mountaineering - safer, while focusing on the protection of the environment and animals. This philosophy has shaped the company into its current form, from its headquarters near Munich to Tasmania, where the merino wool suppliers are located.

Togetherness, respect, animal welfare and environmental protection have always been values to live by for Ortovox. For example, the brand has once again received Leader status from the Fair Wear Foundation, which further emphasizes the company's efforts to guarantee fair production. Animal welfare is also guaranteed by the brand through the Ortovox Wool Promise, which even goes beyond the requirements of the standard RWS certification. In addition, Ortovox operates according to the bluesign® system, one of the most important and strictest in the textile industry for the environmentally friendly production of chemicals, materials and end products. Ortovox products that are Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified contain down or feathers from certified farms that meet local animal welfare requirements.
