Walltopia — North America Climbing Gym Wall Builder of 2023

US Climbing Gym Wall Builder of 2023

We are honoured to be awarded the “Climbing Gym Wall Builder of 2023” and grateful for the recognition by the Climbing Business Journal!

The Climbing Business Journal has been gathering, analyzing and systematizing data about climbing gyms in North America for many years. In 2019, they initiated an annual review called the Gym List Awards to highlight the most significant achievements and developments in the industry for each respective year.

In 2021, they introduced the Wall Builder of the Year Award, which we have won every year since then (check Wall Builder of the Year 2022, Gym List Awards 2021)

In fact, our statistics show that we have been the biggest manufacturer of climbing surfaces in the US for the past 10 years!

We’d like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all our clients who have entrusted their business to us!

We are committed to delivering only the highest quality products to our clients, a goal made possible thanks to our dedicated, hard-working team of rock stars.

From the people in HQ handling design, architecture, engineering, and project management, to our global representatives; from our factory staff to our hardcore technicians – who endure jet lag and irregular sleep schedules to assemble walls and Active Entertainment attractions in every corner of the world.

We are also immensely grateful to our families for their understanding and support of our long working hours and frequent travels!

And what's more

One of our long-term returning clients in the US, Central Rock Gym, has also been recognized by the Climbing Business Journal. They have won the “Developer of the Year” award for 2023. Since January, they have opened five brand new locations, offering a total climbing surface of over 36,000 sqft (3,340 sqm), and we are extremely grateful that they chose us as the manufacturer for all of them. In fact, Central Rock Gym is the only climbing gym chain in North America that operates more than 20+ climbing facilities exclusively through self-builds, without any acquisitions or external investments.

2023 in numbers worldwide

Over the past year, Walltopia has constructed more than 600,000 sqft (55,741 sqm) of climbing surface across 104 gyms located in 33 different countries worldwide.

Watching the Walltopia family grow over the years has been incredibly humbling and we are looking forward to another year of success for everyone in the industry.”
