In 2006, Black Diamond Equipment Asia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Black Diamond Equipment, was established in southeast China. It’s important to note that the manufacturing in China is being done in our factory. Black Diamond Equipment Asia is a Black Diamond built, owned and managed facility that is operated and staffed by Black Diamond employees. The manufacturing standards that we apply to Black Diamond Asia are identical to those that we apply to our Salt Lake City workshop: We pull test each piece of gear to half its rated strength at our Salt Lake City workshop; we do the same at BD Asia. Several units from each manufacturing batch are tested to destruction in our Salt Lake City facility; again, the process is identical at Black Diamond Asia. We rely on thoroughly documented systems and procedures to ensure the consistent quality and safety of every piece of gear we put our name on—we use those same systems and procedures at Black Diamond Asia.
