In addition to the invention of the wheel, the rope is considered an important technical achievement of mankind.
It has already been used more than 3,000 years ago during the construction of the Egyptian pyramids.
An even older find dates from a Bronze Age salt mine in Hallstatt (Austria). It is a rope which was woven from lime tree bark about 3500 years ago. With a thickness of 4 cm it had a breaking load of more than one ton and served as a transport rope for the exploited salt through the mine shafts.
Up to today industrially manufactured wire ropes fulfill its purpose and can be found in many applications.
The tradition lives on and we are proud to be part of it.
