In 2003, the Span brothers from the Tyrolean Stubaital took over the brand "Kohla", the staff, and the production of the company, and established the newly formed Ibex Sportartikel GmbH - a completely restructured business with over 20 years of experience in the fields of development, production, and distribution. The portfolio was reduced to the essentials. We develop, produce, and test our products in Tyrol, and, due to the short distance, are able to quickly respond to the feedback of our customers and integrate it into our products.
A number of awards over the last several years - among them two ISPO Awards (2013/14 and 2015/16) - confirm that we are on the right track and further encourage us to produce the best domestic mountaineering equipment. We can proudly claim that we are one of very few brands in mountaineering that produce more than 80% of its products in Tyrol or Austria and therefore make a substantial contribution to the protection of the environment as well as to the support of our staff.
"Come along the way with us - we are looking forward to it"
