Founder

Piers Chapman founded Cambian in 2011, with the vision of applying advanced engineering principles and quality processes to manufacturing in engineered wood.

His passion for cycling, rock climbing and the outdoors has lead to the development of revolutionary methods of manufacturing action sports facilities, first skateparks, and now applying that experience to the growing indoor climbing sector.

With a background of an MSc in Engineering Design and Industrial Management at the University of Sheffield, he utilised his experience in high speed precision machinery to create an efficient production ecosystem.

Building on this experience, the company has diversified to serve a wide range of markets, staying true to its founding principles of high precision engineering in wood.
