BOULDER, Colorado (October 15, 2014) – Boulder, Colorado-based Eldorado Climbing Walls won the top prize at the fourth annual Wright Award. The award acknowledges Eldorado’s role as a Colorado lifestyle industry leader and the company’s positive impact on the business environment in the state. And living up to the company motto, “Everyone Should Climb”, Jerad Wells, CEO of Eldorado, donated the $3,000 award to Paradox Sports, an organization that improves people’s lives by creating physical adaptive sport communities, including climbing.
During the 20 plus years that Eldorado has been in business, the company leadership has stayed true to their Colorado roots. The design and manufacturing operations are in the heart of Boulder. Key supplies including steel, fiberglass, and lumber, are all sourced from within an hour’s drive from Boulder. As pressures to produce products overseas continues to build, Eldorado has steadfastly resisted and continues to hire, source, and manufacture locally. The Wright Award celebrates that commitment to Colorado.
In the creation of a 90 second video for The Wright, Eldorado took the opportunity to launch a new campaign, “Everyone Should Climb”. During the next 20 years, the company is looking to increase access to climbing across all demographic segments. While the design and construction of climbing gyms is still a key market for Eldorado, the company is developing new products to better meet the needs of K-12 schools and recreation centers.
And the biggest benefit from winning The Wright, may be that Eldorado was able to contribute to an organization that the Eldo Team supports with all its heart and soul—Paradox Sports. This stellar organization provides opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities to not just climb once but make climbing a lifelong hobby and bring them into the supportive, tightknit community of climbers.
