Gleistein Ropes concentrates on the development, manufacture, and sales and distribution of high quality ropes. Founded in 1824, Gleistein is the oldest family-owned industrial enterprise in the Hanseatic city of Bremen, so tradition plays an important role in the company, especially the tradition of always looking ahead! Our eventful history and vast wealth of experience form the foundation for innovation and far-sighted decisions: Gleistein Ropes today is an international group of companies and a leader in many areas of rope technology.
Gleistein operates two of the world’s most modern production plants in Bremen and Trencin, with a total production area of over 17,000 m². A wide range of chemical fibres are processed into over 5,500 different kinds of rope. Sophisticated constructions, the highest quality materials and pioneering rope finishing result in innovative and excellent products. The range also includes proven standard products, manufactured in compliance with current international standards and to the company’s own highest standards. Both production sites are certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2008.
