From the 1st of November this year, Harken UK will distribute FSE Robline’s range of yachting ropes exclusively in the UK and Ireland.

Andy Ash-Vie, Harken UK’s managing director, says: “As a hardware manufacturer, we have a keen interest in staying on top of the latest advances in ropes and fibre technologies.”

FSE Robline is a European brand of yachting ropes, manufactured by Teufelberger Group, based in Austria. This distribution deal follows a period of consistent growth for the company.

“We’re ready for the challenge of building our international yachting ropes business, and Harken UK is the ideal partner for us,” says Teufelberger group president Florian Teufelberger.
