Manufacturing and Production

Montane is proud to work with some of the leading technical apparel and equipment factories in the industry, many of which we’ve partnered with since the very beginning. We only work with manufacturers who respect both our standards, and the rights and well-being of the people who make our products.

Response to the military coup in Myanmar:
Montane condemns the ongoing violence against peaceful protesters in Myanmar, led by the military. We are in support of the democratically elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi, and the international condemnation of violence issued on March 28th, supported by the UK government. Montane urges the swift reinstallation of democracy in Myanmar, and that all violence immediately cease to enable a return to peace.

As part of our factory selection process and ongoing partnerships, we require that our suppliers agree and meet our business standards. These are maintained by regular visits to our factories to ensure that our values, policies and standards are being adhered to.

We only work with manufacturers who can ensure;
  • Working conditions are safe and hygienic, with adequate fire safety conditions maintained.
  • Facilities are maintained in line with legally mandated standards to prevent hazards or injury.
  • Workers have the right to join or form trade unions of their own choosing and to bargain collectively.
