Gripped - - NEWS -

Omega Pa­cific has an­nounced they’re clos­ing shop af­ter 38 years of man­u­fac­tur­ing an as­sort­ment of climb­ing gear. One of their most-loved pieces of gear was the Link Cam, but they were known for their beefy quick­draws and cara­bin­ers. ceo Rob Nadeau sent an email on Jan. 20 that said, “As Omega Pa­cific starts the new year, I’m writ­ing you to­day as ceo to share some im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion about Omega Pa­cific’s fu­ture. Af­ter 37 years as a U.S. man­u­fac­turer of high-qual­ity climb­ing and res­cue hard­ware, Omega Pa­cific has made the de­ci­sion to close its doors. The de­ci­sion is based upon eco­nomic fac­tors, and the founder’s de­ci­sion to retire. There­fore, Omega Pa­cific will be­gin wind­ing down busi­ness op­er­a­tions im­me­di­ately.”—gripped
