About Allcord Ltd.

Allcord started up in Newcastle back in 1980 by former work colleagues Alan Birkmyre and Colin Westland, who spotted a gap in the market for the distribution of ropes and mountaineering equipment. From those first premises in Ilford Road, Allcord grew into a leading distributor in the UK and Ireland offering a comprehensive range of climbing and outdoor equipment suitable for every kind of activity or expedition. Colin still works with the company today.

Allcord brands include Tendon and Cousin-Trestec ropes, CAMP climbing equipment, Fizan trekking and nordic walking poles, and TSL snowshoes, as well as Japanese clothing brand Gramicci, and Scandinavian snow-sports brands Icepeak and Luhta. We supply climbing shoes from top brands ClimbX and SoiLL.

As well as distributing recreational outdoor equipment, Allcord also supplies professional safety equipment to government departments, local authorities, rope access companies, activity centres, arborists, the military and other professional users.

Allcord are and have always been committed to a culture of continual improvement where quality and customer service standards are concerned, and were one of the first British companies in the outdoor industry to achieve the ISO 9001 accreditation for quality management.

In 2018, Allcord began a new chapter, merging with Edinburgh-based distributor 2Pure. Based in Balerno at the foot of the Pentland Hills, 2Pure specialise in cycle and run brands and so an outdoor channel was a natural progression and the Allcord brands provided a perfect fit. Please visit the contact page to find out how to get in touch with us at 2Pure.
