AND NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSORS – Marlow Ropes by VELA SAILING SUPPLY: another successful come back! At the end of 2005 however, the Company was split up and sold off to separate buyers. The Marlow Cordage Division was bought by the owner of Marlow’s one time UK competitor, English Braids, who retained the name Marlow Ropes Ltd. Today, Marlow Ropes has a brand new purpose built factory and warehouse and continues to manufacture quality British ropes on the same site as Thomas Burfield over 200 years ago.
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. 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:
• Leisure Marine

• Fire & Rescue
• Work Safety & Industrial Access
