Innovation, a developpment driver
Volx gets its name from a small town in the Alps of Haute-Provence that was a symbol of high-level climbing in the 80s and 90s. The company was founded in 1996, in Savigny, near Lyon. We have a research department and a manufacturing site where we produce holds made of composite materials, which allows us to create and produce on site all the holds that we sell around the world.
The Volx Group dedicated more than 4 years of R&D to the development of LUXOV®, which offers unlimited potential to climbing gyms and climbers. We have registered 5 patents. As an SME based in Lyon, we worked with a dozen partners across the region to develop the system. We also created X’Sin, a start-up dedicated to the development of the electronic and software solution.
