CONTERRA TECHNICAL SYSTEMS - A SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE
At Conterra Inc. we build emergency equipment for the entire range of emergency response professionals. As rescue professionals, you are out there laying it on the line every day. Your use and feedback of Conterra gear helps us design and create better products. This is a responsibility that we take very seriously. We are truly committed to building the best and most unique gear. You, our customers, are a vital link in helping us achieve this goal.
At Conterra we will not build a product for emergency use unless we can make it better and more unique than the competition. Our gear is designed with personal safety and convenience in mind:
All of our equipment is made in the USA and backed with a lifetime warranty for the reasonable life of the product. Conterra Inc. is locally owned and operated in Bellingham, Washington and is proud to keep its quality, production, and innovation in the USA. All Conterra products are sewn, and hand built in the United States by skilled workers, at a fair living wage.
It takes a village of experts to innovate. Experts from various fields serve as technical advisors to our design team. Technical Rescue, tactical medicine, emergency medicine, ski patrol and fire service experts support our endeavor.
We believe the environment is everybody's responsibility. At Conterra we operate with the environment in mind by reusing shipping boxes, packaging, and shipping full orders. Hiring local sewers reduces our carbon footprint by drastically cutting the emissions of transportation. We buy our fabric locally and purchase zippers, buckles, and other components from American manufacturers that have higher environmental standards and quality than China, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia, Honduras, or the Philippines. Please think globally by buying locally.
A core value of Conterra, Inc. is giving back to community. At Conterra, we support communities globally through monetary donations and equipment provisions for disaster relief and/or in war torn countries. Local community support has included Covid mask donations as well as support for non-profit outdoor education and homeless relief programs. Conterra also gives back by providing mountain rescue training and search and rescue training in our local area to help keep our community safe.
UNIQUE. DURABLE. ORGANIZED. FAST DEPLOYING.
