Marlow Ropes

Marlow Ropes Ltd are a privately owned British manufacturer of specialist synthetic fibre ropes and assemblies.  

Our factory in Hailsham, East Sussex boasts a wide range of rope making capabilities and technologies.  We distribute around the world and have our own sales and distribution company in the USA.

We are extremely proud of our heritage – not only as a brand recognised around the world for quality, performance and innovation, but as a business with ties to the local community going back over 200 years.

We specialise in the use of exotic synthetic fibres such as Vectran, Zylon, Technora, Nomex and Twaron and are a key partner with DSM Dyneema, designing specialist lines from Dyneema SK99, SK78, SK75, SK38, DM20 and XBO.
