T. Nielsen & Company are a dealer for Marlow Ropes, specifically their Leisure Marine Rope product range, which allows us to supply the latest rigging technology, and also apply it to our projects.
Marlow Ropes' history
In 1807 Thomas Burfield founded his rope company in Hailsham, East Sussex - the present day Marlow factory still manufactures rope on Burfield's original site. In those days however, Burfield made ropes from "soft" natural fibres, not only hemps imported from Europe and India but also Cannabis!
Times have changed however and today Marlow specialises in the design and manufacture of technically innovative rope products using the very latest hi-tech and exotic man-made fibres.
One thing hasn't changed though, Marlow Ropes' reputation for quality and technical innovation continues in the 21st Century and the Company continues to forge a path of progress and growth in the markets in which it operates.

Marlow's Leisure Marine Rope products and manufacturing expertise cover mega and superyachts, grand prix racers, club racers, cruisers, classics, dinghies, sports boats, windsurfing and kitesurfing. They know that each discipline has very specific and individual demands so that is why they work with leaders in each field to design and manufacture ropes that match and exceed the requirements of every sailor and yacht owner – from the largest superyacht to the smallest dingy.

Most of the time specifying a rope for an application is a pretty straightforward business. If you have any doubts, then T. Nielsen & Company's team have a vast wealth of experience and knowledge of where, and how, ropes are used and will offer sound advice.

Everything you need to know about splicing!
A splice is a way of terminating a rope or joining two ends of rope together without using a knot. Apart from being bulky and unsightly, even a correctly tied knot can cause significant loss of strength to a rope. T. Nielsen & Company has a wealth of splicing knowledge and experience and we offer a splicing service to our customers. For those wishing to splice their own ropes, Marlow Ropes has produced a comprehensive splicing guide and for videos detailing some of the more common splicing methods - click here
