Commercial Marine

Over the centuries, the need to pull, haul, lift, hoist, hold, retain or otherwise control objects has given rise to numerous methods and systems. Common to all is a strength member that performs the working part of the system. By virtue of synthetic fibre development, synthetic rope has achieved significant recognition as an extremely effective strength member for an ever-increasing range of applications. 

Today, there are synthetic ropes stronger than wire rope size-for-size and yet so light they float in water.
