What's New at Porta-Hang?

Well #PortaGang, it was an exciting first half of the year! Now, July alone has been packed with it’s own tick list of fun.


We’ve seen huge growth in our community these past few months and we wanted to take a moment to bring all of you who joined us more recently up to speed on all of the excitement that’s been going on.


So, in no particular order of excitement level, here's what’s new at Porta-Hang!


Company Highlights

1. Porta-Hang Canada

Just this week you may have seen the news that we officially launched Porta-Hang Canada to better serve our customers to the north. It is with great pride that we move into this new era for Porta-Hang. We are excited to offer faster shipping times, lower shipping costs and to be eliminating duty fees for Canadian-based orders.

2. Reduced Plastic

  • Earlier this spring we made a commitment to reducing waste by eliminating plastic from our packaging, and replacing it with paper. We also changed out carry bag materials to a cotton canvas from polyester. Shivani Goberdhan spoke on the impacts of plastic waste to Hawaii's ecosystems in our blog earlier this year, in "How Reducing Plastic Makes a big Impact Here and far".

    3. Big Island Climbing

    Porta-Hang gear is now available at Big Island Climbing “The only gym on the Big Island”, in Hilo, Hawaii. You’ll find a variety of Porta-Hang gear here, including; hanger sets, holds and training accessories.

     

    4. Moving Out of The Garage

    We’ve grown significantly over the last year and a half. So much so that we quickly outgrew our production facility and have expanded our hold line and training accessories lines. Read the full story in our recent blog post - “Moving Out Of The Garage”.
