Climbing and outdoor company Conquista Montanhismo is launching a new collection this month that uses Polygiene technology - treated items will stay fresh and follow the Polygiene motto of 'Wear More, Wash Less', which saves water and textile waste and makes garments last longer. All of Conquista products are domestically produced and sold in retail.
"We chose Polygiene's anti-odour treatment for both the proven efficiency and the care that Polygiene has for the environment. We are fully aligned with the values of this highly regarded company," said Edemilson Padilha, founder and CEO of Conquista Montanhismo, in a company press release.
"Brazil is a new and important market for us and it is with great satisfaction we now partner with Conquista Montanhismo as our first Brazilian partner. Our focus is set to add a number of partner brands, from the largest economy in Latin America, in the near future," said Ulrika Björk, CEO of Polygiene.
The company was established in 1990 by young people seeking a bit of adventure and needed equipment, which was very expensive and inaccessible for them. Today they have become a benchmark in the outdoor market, where they not only transform inputs into products, but also as a factory of ideas with the mission of providing people with the power of adventure. The company follows the goal of creating products that really work on the mountain, offering comfort and safety. They are the only company in the Brazilian mountain scenario to have the ISO 9001 and UIAA (International Union of Alpinism Associations) Certifications. Conquista is a company that respects the environment, recycling 100 per cent of the waste generated in the production and using less polluting fuels. As far as possible, they are using recycled materials in the manufacture of the products, such as fleeces fabric, produced with the use of PET bottles. (PC)
