About Rope Works

A Family Business

Rope Works has always been a family business, and we consider our customers to be family too. This closeness has led to our unique, “personal builder” approach to customer service.

From 1978 to Today

Founded in 1978, Rope Works has been at the forefront of every major leap in technology, training, construction, and industry development. We are multi-generational and multi-talented, and we only employ the finest professionals in the industry. The historical significance of Rope Works is second only to the progressive thinking and futuristic techniques employed by our builders and trainers, a fact we’re extremely proud of.

Our President Emeritus, Bobby Tod, is a founding member of the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) and was instrumental in the development of the ACCT Installation and Inspection Standards. These standards are still in use today and are by far the most widely accepted standards in the United States, providing safety and consistency throughout the industry.

Rope Works is proud to be a Professional Vendor Member (PVM) of the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT). Rope Works Inc. is a full-service provider, handling every aspect of course creation, use, and maintenance including consultation, design & engineering, construction, inspections, equipment, and high-quality customized training, program reviews, and services.

Every employee of Rope Works is a highly trained professional that is hand-chosen from the industry for their knowledge, skill, style, flair, humor, and of course fashion sense. When you choose Rope Works you’re not just choosing a huge faceless company that treats you like a number – you’re choosing a personalized, hand-tailored experience that will provide you with exactly the outcome you’re looking for. Call us today to find out more about how we can support you.

All of our trainers are veterans of the industry and are widely considered the best in the business. They have experienced the evolution of our rapidly changing practices and techniques, and they are always questioning and always learning. Our trainers will work closely with your staff to emphasize their strengths and ensure that they are trained with the equipment they have available to them and are familiar with the latest in industry recognized practices.

Got a favorite trainer? Request them! However, we encourage you to experience all the different trainers and styles – every experience with Rope Works is unique but the most important thing will always remain the same: the quality and consistency of the training… and the fun!
