FI Is two guys. Ben Carlson and George Fisher.
At Furnace Industries, we are committed to promoting dry tooling, ice, and mixed climbing
while educating climbers to conserve the climbing environment.
FI is nothing without George. His hands fabricate every product we produce. Father of two, George lives and works near Chipping Norton in the UK. His woodworking skills have elevated his business to legendary status. When he's not renovating a kitchen for a 18th century farmhouse, George is climbing, mountain biking, and spending time with his family.
The business brains behind FI and based in The Gunks of Upstate NY, Ben is an avid climber. Basically the guinea pig for all George's inventions, Ben has used prototype Kronos tools in the Tetons, San Juan, the Northeast USA and beyond. He works as a lighting designer, programmer, photographer, and climbing guide.
