Mountain Hardwear announces a 3-year partnership with Air Zermatt, helicopter rescue- and transport company, located in Switzerland.
“Mountain Hardwear is honored to be selected as the apparel and equipment partner of Air Zermatt. We are proud to join forces with a service that has done so much to advance the science of safety and survival in the mountains and are excited by the challenge of designing outdoor apparel and equipment that can help Air Zermatt’s professionals save lives and craft new and innovative mountain rescue solutions.” – Topher Gaylord, President of Mountain Hardwear
“In 1968 Air Zermatt was founded to help people in difficult situations, especially in the mountains around Zermatt. Today, the technology and equipment for mountain rescues are completely different than in those days. The only thing remaining from that time is the environment the crew has to work in, day by day, from the Matterhorn to Mount Everest. In order to be perfectly protected during rescue missions under harsh conditions and in a hostile environment we need to wear the right clothing. We are very proud to have Mountain Hardwear as a new partner for our equipment and apparel needs. Air Zermatt count itself lucky to work with such esteemed professionals in designing our own special equipment to protect our crews.” Gerold Biner, CEO Air Zermatt
